What you’ll find on this page: Here are links to presentations that were given at the 2016 at the ACEEE Hot Water Forum in Portland, OR. Often, you’ll see a slide show that covers the bare bones of the more elaborate talk given by the speaker. Also, several slide shows were damaged somehow, so that some slides don’t appear.
