See first hand the many ways in which a building can become more energy efficient, use fewer natural resources and have minimal impact on the environment.

The Green Jobs Act of 2007 authorizes funding up to $125 million annually for job training in the energy efficiency and renewable energy industries. Billions of dollars in American Recovery Act and Re-Investment Act cash are tied to projects that use renewable and sustainable technologies. Programs become eligible to apply for grants after they have incorporated green training into their curriculum.

Have you transitioned your training to Green?

When we are discussing Mechanical Systems, Green pertains to: Verification of a systems efficiency, Making America more energy efficient, and New sources of revenue for contractors. Rising energy cost, and making America more energy independent is on everyone's mind. We can accomplish our goals through going green.

What is the Market for Green Jobs? There are currently 8.5 million U.S. jobs in renewable energy and energy efficiency industries. This is expected to grow to as many as 40 million by 2030. The industries that will grow the most green jobs are in the construction and service industries.

Energy efficiency has never been so closely tied to economic opportunity. However the National Renewable Energy Lab has identified a shortage of skilled and trained persons as a leading barrier to renewable energy and energy efficiency growth.

Dallas Creating a Carbon-Neutral Urban Block

Dallas aims to take a vacant inner-city block behind City Hall and transform it into a carbon-neutral, sustainable community.  Urban Re:Vision- Dallas and the Central Dallas Community Development Corp. have chosen a design for the community.  Dubbed “Forwarding Dallas,” the city block aims to run off the grid, reports PegasusNews.  Modeled after a hillside, the site is a series of valleys and hilltops.  The valleys will have planted trees and bushes that transition into more resistant plants as the roofline rises. Atop the roof peaks – or “hills” – will reside solar thermal, photovoltaic and wind energy resources.  The rooftop will also capture rainwater and store it underground for later use.  The project drew hundreds of design entries. The chosen design is a collaboration between Portuguese-based architectural firms Atelier Data and Moov.  The building is to be made of prefabricated materials, with groundbreaking scheduled for 2011.

As organizations enter 2010, IT administrators will continue struggling to balance between the growth of information and the low IT spending. The last time storage technology kept up with information growth was 2002. However, this time around to keep up, storage administrators will need to start deleting information. The 'delete' mentality will lead to a shift from using backup as the long term storage location. Backup will return to its intended use and recovery while archiving will step in to manage the long term retention and disposition of information. This was one of the storage trends outlined by Symantec's storage trends to watch for in 2010. []
