Water and energy consumption requirements for new buildings and water and energy consumption of existing buildings have a significant impact on reaching our goals for energy independence.

On May 12, 2014 the scheduled speaker was unable to be present and Bob Scott described some unusual problems he saw in chemical plants. An old established plant was losing a railroad tank car of ammonia every day and they had not changed anything they had been doing. The more Bob looked, the less ammonia the plant lost. In another plant during startup the plant was losing carbon tetrachloride by the tank car load to an unknown  destination. All the plant technical people were put out on around the clock shifts to try to find the leak which went away when the plant operators, tired of all the extra people snooping around, operated the equipment better and the loss disappeared. The discussion questions evolved to a discussion of chemical plant safety.

On May 17 Steve Levy related how TVA policies were becoming inimicable to the development of solar power. Steve feels that the distributors need to step up and help homeownews install solar power.
