RSG Senior Director Peter Plumeau will be presenting at the 2015 International Urban Freight Conference in Long Beach, CA this week. His presentation is titled, “Urban Design: Making Freight and Logistics Work within the Urban Setting” and he will also be moderating the panel, “The Imperative for Energy Efficiency and Sustainability–Impacts on the Freight System.”
RSG Senior Consultant Erica Wygonik is co-author on a presentation at the event as well, presented by Nathan Mayes and titled, “Modeling Vehicle Miles Traveled and Emissions Considerations for Goods Delivery Scenario Decisions.”
I-NUF is recognized as the premier venue for urban freight research. It draws participants from around the world including the research community, private sector, and the government.
RSG’s Vince Bernardin, Steve Tuttle, and Steven Trevino are attending the 2015 Indiana MPO Conference in Muncie, Indiana from October 13-15. The conference is titled “Creating Healthy Communities: Redefining Transportation for the 21st Century.” This year’s topics will focus on how Indiana metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) can help redefine transportation to create and support healthier, active communities. RSG is a bronze sponsor of the event.
RSG Senior Director, Ken Kaliski, to present this afternoon at the Renewable Energy (RE2015) conference in Burlington, Vermont. His presentation, titled “A Sound Experience of Wind Energy in Vermont,” discusses the history of wind turbine sound in Vermont, including project conditions, sound monitoring results, noise complaints, and future expectations.
RE2015 is the leading event for the renewable energy sectors in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Northern New York. The conference brings together key players in the clean energy sector and highlights current energy challenges, Vermont’s leadership role in the energy industry, and the steps needed to implement an integrated energy infrastructure. RSG was a contributing sponsor of the event.
RSG Senior Consultant Karl Washburn was invited to present a paper titled, “Engineering Quieter Off-Road Machines” as part of the two-day workshop, “Engineering a Quieter America: Progress on Consumer and Industrial Product Noise Reduction.” The workshop was held in Washington, DC on October 6th and 7th and was sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering (NAE).
This was the third workshop in a series following NAE’s publication of “Technology for a Quieter America” in 2010. The NAE, which advises Congress and the Administration on policy regarding engineering, will publish the workshop transcript in 2016.
RSG Director John Hinckley to present today at the Air Quality Modeling and Public Health Workshop in Albany, NY.
His presentation will discuss the air quality permitting work performed for a new Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant at SUNY ESF in Syracuse, NY. It will focus on how air dispersion modeling of CHP emissions was used to help design the project by identifying the stack height and emission controls needed to meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).
RSG Sr. Director Ken Kaliski and Sr. Consultant Karl Washburn have been in San Francisco this week attending Inter-Noise 2015, the 44th International Congress and Exposition on Noise Control Engineering. The conference, known as the largest noise conference in the world, is sponsored by the International Institute of Noise Control Engineering (I-INCE).
On Tuesday, Ken co-chaired the “Renewable Energy Noise Control Technologies” session. Today, he gave a presentation titled “Field Evaluation of Reflected Noise from a Single Noise Barrier.”
RSG Directors Greg Spitz, Mark Bradley, and Stephane Hess along with RSG Vice President Maren Outwater are presenting this week at the 14th International Conference on Travel Behaviour Research in Windsor, UK.
The conference, chaired by Stephane, is focusing this year on “transitions in a digital world”—how technology is changing both the ways we travel and measure travel. RSG is a key sponsor of the event.
Three RSGers to present this week at the New York State Association of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (NYSAMPO) 2015 Annual Conference in Syracuse, NY.
Eric Talbot will present “The Ohio DOT Infrastructure Resiliency Plan” on work RSG is conducting for the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to provide adaptation responses to climate change effects. Colin Smith will present “’Big Data’ in Transportation Planning: User Perspectives, Challenges, and Successes,” which will review the state of the practice in transportation planning and travel modeling with respect to using “big data” sources of travel data to inform planning decisions. Steven Gayle will moderate several sessions and will present “Resiliency Planning” on how states and MPOs are planning for more resilient transportation networks in the face of more frequent extreme weather events.
RSG Director, Colin Smith, to present at the 2015 Transportation Datapalooza in Washington, DC from June 16-17.
