eQUEST energy modeling series
The Energy Center of Wisconsin is holding a two-day class in Illinois on Feb. 21 to 22, 2012, on energy modeling tools and their applications for advanced building systems.
A class titled "eQUEST Energy Modeling Series" is being held at the Northern Illinois Outreach Center in Naperville, Ill. The two-day class is being held on Feb. 21 and 22, 2012, and is an all-day class. Supported by the Energy Center of Wisconsin (ECW), the purpose of the class is to teach users the eQUEST energy modeling systems and their applications for advanced building systems.
Benefits of using the eQUEST energy modeling system include:
- Utilizes the proven DOE-2 calculation engine
- Provides multiple user-interface levels
- Generates both simple graphical results and detailed numerical results
- Fast run times
- DWG file tracing and 3-D model visualization
- It's free!
The class costs $549 and begins at 8 a.m. both days and ends at 5:30 p.m. The lecture is being presented by Keith Swartz, PE, LEED AP, and Lee DeBaillie, PE, CEM, LEED AP. Registrations must be made in advance.
Further details on registration and on the class can be found here.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
