Museum Volunteer Receives
Earth Charter Award 


Longtime volunteer, Ed Sax has been presented the Seabury chapter of the Earth Charter Group’s “Sustainability Achievement Award of Excellence”.  The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental principles for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society.


Ed earned the award for the Solar Adaptive Exterior Wall he built by hand-for the east wall of Vintage Radio and Communication  Museum which has lowered the interior energy consumption dramatically by its seamless thermal mass recovery effect. The award also covers other, energy efficient ideas such as:

•    The Transpired Solar Air-Collector, a porous “window” panel that directly fan-heats inside space.
 

•    The Air to Air Heat Exchanger to bring in freshly heated outside air in exchange for stale air inside.
•    The Omega Rail, a strong, light weight, minimally visible overhead rapid pedestrian  transfer scheme.

All these examples  benefit society and the environment in multiple ways! The presentation was made at Ed’s Seabury residence on December 9, 2013.  Award Certificate
