*/2011 Solar Fiesta! Building a Sustainable Lifestyle, August 27, 28, @ 
Albuquerque Academy; Call for Speakers - Due July 5, 2010/ *

The 2011 Solar Fiesta! shines a light on the broad picture of 
sustainability with a base coat of solar: passive solar heating and 
cooling, photovoltaics, as well as every other detail in our lifestyles 
we can change to make ourselves more sustainable. Since NMSEA's mission 
is to promote clean, renewable energy and sustainability in New Mexico 
through education, empowerment, collaboration and advocacy, we will need 
everyone to participate and share their expertise!

In our focus, the demand for techniques related to passive solar home 
and commercial building has increased recently. New Mexico boasts more 
award winning solar architects than any other state in the U.S.! We are 
trying to gather them to discuss methods of designing and retrofitting 
homes which are self-lighting, heating AND COOLING. Not to mention 

A special track on Sunday will highlight cutting edge research and 
development being done by universities and laboratories here in NM. The 
Fiesta will also include panel discussions on sustainability, women in 
solar and culminate with the future of distributed generation and 
renewable energy credits. As a solar professional or enthusiast, you may 
have a unique perspective on renewable energy, energy efficiency and/or 
sustainability. Would you consider sharing your expertise by 
participating in the 2011 Solar Fiesta! Workshop Series?

If you would like to participate as a speaker during this year's Solar 
Fiesta, here’s what you need to know:

1. Presentations: There are three types of presentations:
* Workshops (1-hour presentation to the general public)
* Technical Sessions (30-minute presentation to industry peers and 
technically-minded on Sunday)
* Panel discussions (2-hour discussion with 4 to 8 panelists)

2. Submission deadline: Interested presenters must complete and submit 
the electronic form by midnight on July 5th.

3. Selections: In mid-July, the Workshop Coordinator and Fiesta 
Committee will review and select topics/presenters. Selection criteria 
are based not only on the individual submissions, but also on developing 
a balanced and relevant workshop series overall.

4. Notifications: Speaker notifications will be emailed immediately 
after selections are made mid-July.

5. Presentations Due: To avoid audiovisual equipment issues and delays, 
speakers with electronic presentations, not bringing their own 
equipment, will be asked to email an electronic version of their 
presentation to the Workshop Coordinator by August 10th so that we can 
pre-load all presentations onto our audiovisual equipment prior to the

*/ /**JUNE 11-12: 12th Annual Greenbuilt Tour - /NM Statewide

10am - 4pm
Statewide: Albuquerque, Corrales, Placitas, Santa Fe, Cerrillos, Lamy, 
Edgewood, Arroyo Seco
$1 per house per person

The GreenBuilt Tour is organized by the US Green Building Council – New 
Mexico Chapter. 
There are 24 homes selected for the tour, 17 in the Albuquerque metro 
area (including Corrales and Placitas), five in the Santa Fe area 
(including Cerrillos and Lamy), one in Edgewood, and one in Arroyo 
Seco.  Green awards will be presented at the keynote kickoff event on 
Friday, June 10.

According to Kent Gurley and Suzanne Blanke, GreenBuilt Tour co-chairs, 
“The goal of the tour is to provide interested individuals with the 
opportunity to see a variety of new homes and renovations that encourage 
energy saving and sustainability. It’s one thing to read about 
sustainability and energy-saving materials but it’s entirely different 
to see them in person.”

The tour includes a diverse selection of homes, both renovation and new 
construction projects, ranging in size from 850 sf to well over 3,000 
sf. Two of the homes are off-grid. Several of the homes utilize 
innovative materials and/or building methods. A number of the homes have 
achieved or are pursuing ENERGY STAR ratings and BGNM or LEED-H
