Webinar and Workshop Descriptions


I2SL's High-Tech Talks Webinar Series

Monthly webinar offerings intended to educate, connect, and diversify the sustainable laboratory and high-performance facility community.



All workshops are taught by seasoned laboratory designers, energy managers, and facilities professionals. The following are courses that I2SL offers:

Building a Green Lab Engagement Program
This workshop will describe the impact that green lab engagement programs can have on a research campus and describe two university green lab programs in particular: University of Colorado-Boulder and University of California-Davis.

Building with BIM
Learn the latest on the National Building Information Modeling (BIM) Standard-United States™ from the father of the concept and lend your voice to the future of consensus-based standards for the high-tech building industry.

Data Center Energy Efficiency Best Practices Workshop
This full-day course focuses on state-of-the-art strategies for how to improve data center energy performance.

Designing Safe and Energy-Efficient Laboratory Exhaust Systems
This workshop offers new advancements in designing safe and energy-efficient laboratory exhaust systems and include examples of case studies that demonstrate how these design strategies should be implemented.

Energy-Efficient Laboratory Ventilation Design Practices and Technologies
During this workshop attendees will learn about a progression of complimentary airside technologies and design practices that can be used to significantly and safely reduce ventilation-related energy expenses.

Energy Sub-Metering and Benchmarking Workshop
This workshop explores sub-metering laboratory spaces to help achieve management and sustainability goals.

Evaluate the Savings and Return on Investment (ROI) of Laboratory Energy Savings Strategies
Learn about a comprehensive custom laboratory energy analysis and ROI spreadsheet tool that evaluates the combined savings of multiple laboratory energy efficiency measures.

Laboratory Commissioning Workshop
This half-day workshop provides a robust consideration of commissioning principles, including key targets for laboratory commissioning, a review of system interactions and their relationships to sustainability, performance metrics, scheduling, and associated costs.

Laboratory Ventilation Optimization Process to Improve Safety, Energy Efficiency, and Sustainability of Laboratories
During this workshop attendees will learn about proper design and operation of laboratory ventilation systems to protect them from overexposure to potentially hazardous materials.

Labs21 Workshop: Optimizing Laboratory Ventilation Rates
Formerly Part I of the Labs21 Advanced Course: Laboratory Ventilation and Design

This half-day, highly interactive workshop scrutinizes the design challenges of crafting a "balanced" laboratory ventilation system that both handles the "worst" scenario (possible) safely and manages "routine" scenarios (probable) efficiently.

Safely Cut Your Laboratory Energy Use in Half
Hear about University of California, Irvine's Smart Lab efforts and results and how you can reduce your energy use and carbon footprint using their methods and lessons learned.

Smart Labs Leadership and Management
This two-day training course is intended for people responsible for providing safe, energy-efficient, and sustainable laboratory environments.

Sustainable Strategies for Laboratory Planning, Design, and Operation
A workshop that introduces strategies for designing and building sustainable laboratories in both new and existing facilities.

Two Part Training Series: Laboratory Ventilation for Professionals and Fume Hood Testing, Maintenance, and Management Certification
Let I2SL help build your expertise with its two-part ventilation training series: Laboratory Ventilation Safety and Sustainability and Fume Hood Testing, Maintenance, and Management Certification. Attendees who complete the series will be versed in the essentials of laboratory ventilation systems and fume hoods through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab work.
