Happy New Year! Happy New Decade!
Gemini's goal for this decade is to help the U.S. transition into a low-carbon society in as fast and equitable manner as we can. enLighten will be just one avenue that will we utilize to achieve this.
My name is Anthony Dylan Kinslow II. I have a PhD in Civil Engineering from Stanford University. My area of focus was and still is identifying energy efficiency opportunities in buildings. I am going to be a dad in roughly 17 days and I believe we have a slim window of time to transition into a low-carbon society. I also will be the primary blogger.
Note. If there is a time when someone else posts on enLIGHTen, they will introduce themselves in the first line of their post.
This blog in 2020 will discuss as assortment of topics connected to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but primarily I will discuss building energy performance.
In addition, I want to open up enLIGHTen to conversations and discussions. I do not claim to know everything and will never shy away from admitting my confusion or ignorance on a topic. A hard lesson to learn when going through the PhD program is: the more you learn about a single area, the more you realize how little you know about everything else. So I encourage you to also ask questions and/or provide your insights based on your experience.
Wishing you a wonderful 2020!
