And comedy hour with IBTS in Kansas returns.... Our county, Miami County, entered into agreement for services with IBTS to receive a variety of services including property maintenance services. This time IBTS employee, Jeremy Dierking, decided to stop at a second property that I own and take pictures of everything he could see from the road and sent me a notice of nuisance violation. No list of actionable items. I now have in hand courtesy of IBTS a nice portfolio of images of my operable, registered vehicles, trailers, building, and electric service. Within 10 days of receiving this joke of a notice, I mailed a response to Mr. Dierking and copied Ashok Goswami, CEO, and Joseph Balac, General Counsel, requesting an actionable list of items on my property in violation of my county's nuisance regs. It is ridiculous that IBTS would photograph all items on my property hoping that at least one violates the nuisance regs. In the meantime, it's crickets in response to my request for a list. Training at IBTS must be substandard and being an inspector must suck. Meanwhile, within a mile of my property in all four directions I have documented issues that are clearly in violation of county nuisance regulations and stopped in to talk with my neighbors to see if they have received a notice from Mr. Dierking. Not one neighbor has heard from him. Can't help but think I am a target for refusing him access to my property on our initial meeting.

PR100 is a new effort in the ongoing work to provide reliable, affordable, and resilient electricity to every city and community in #PuertoRico. Researchers leverage the capabilities of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national labs and insight from the community to set multiple pathways for Puerto Rico to meet its target of 100% #renewableelectricity by 2050. The rigorous analysis and advanced modeling will demonstrate the mix of solar PV, battery energy storage, wind energy, and other infrastructure that is most achievable, cost-effective, and #resilient.

Spanish interpretation will be provided.

Executive Authority During Energy Emergencies - National Governors Association The road map is a tool to help Governors prepare in advance of an energy emergency and inform their decision making in the event of an energy emergency.

Our Story

Institute: Ideation. Innovation. Investment in programs, procedures and the communities we serve. As a nonprofit organization, we are able to focus our thought leadership and subject matter expertise on large-scale goals and challenges instead of shareholder profit demands. We have a long history of sharing our knowledge through teaching and training others. It’s about mission over margin. Good governance and guidance. Vision and value.

Building: Bungalow. Brownstone. Bridge. And all points in between. Our work touches almost every aspect of the built environment. We are building resilient communities by reducing risk, enhancing public safety and improving quality of life. We balance social, economic and environmental priorities, whether manufactured housing, major infrastructure project or local government services.

Technology: Tools. Techniques. Tricks of the trade. We bring them all to bear on every project we touch. Some are tried, tested and true. Others are new innovations, like using live mobile video to conduct inspections, or drone technology to survey a site, or new ways to think about and meet challenges. Emerging technologies are on our horizon too. How can they help us improve the built environment?

Safety: Security. Sustainability. Shelter. Life safety building codes and standards. Trusted third-party advisor. Provider of local government services. Much of our work involves helping communities become resilient, or to recover after a disaster. We understand that the physical, emotional and economic wellbeing of a community depends on its ability to provide citizens with the services and resources they need to thrive in a safe, secure environment.
