Eco-Living Paradigm Creation - One Community Weekly Progress Update #208

Eco-living paradigm creation can be accomplished through open source and free-shared approaches to sustainable foodenergyhousingeducation, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices. Open sourcing all these as a complete model and new way of living has the potential to provide a better way of life for everyone built on a sustainable foundation. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All because it benefits all people and life on our planet.

One Community Welcomes Renan Dantas to the Design Team

One Community welcomes Renan Dantas to the Design Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Renan Dantas

Mechanical Engineer and Process Piping Drafting Student: Renan has his Bachelor’s of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidade Federal Fluminense, Rio de Janeiro Brazil and is currently pursuing a Process Piping Drafting certificate at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Renan won a scholarship from the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) to participate in a 4-month exchange program at York University in Toronto, Canada, which motivated him to move to Canada looking for new challenges and personal and professional growth. Renan has over 3 years experience working as Project Engineer/Field Engineer in Brazil and over seven years using AutoCAD software for academic and professional purposes. He is a big fan of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking and surfing, all of which contribute to his interest in the environment and conservation issues. As a Christian, he believes that we must bear fruit and make a positive difference in the world every day and Renan has spent his whole life volunteering for different causes ranging from sorting food donations, to a peer tutoring program designed to assist low-income students, and now as an AutoCAD Designer and Drafter helping One Community with the Duplicable City Center.

Building Sustainable Cities – One Community Weekly Progress Update #206

Building Sustainable Cities - One Community Weekly Progress Update #206

Building sustainable cities is finally becoming both practical and affordable with the resources and backing of governmental organizations. What is needed now is a way for average people, NGOs, and nonprofits to build them too. Open sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and maintenance can make this easy enough, affordable enough, and provide sufficient diversity and benefit for it to spread and be directed by the private sector. One Community sees this as a Highest Good of All approach to global transformation, individual and small-group freedom and empowerment.

One Community Welcomes Shubham Agrawal to the Engineering Team

One Community welcomes Shubham Agrawal to the Engineering Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

shubham-agrawal-announcement-640

B.E. Electrical Engineering, Power and Energy Systems Graduate Student: Shubham has a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from India and is pursuing his Masters in Power and Energy Systems from Virginia Tech. His interest in power and energy systems comes from the “excruciating dearth of electricity” that he faced as a child in his home state of Uttar Pradesh. Motivated by this, Shubham has gained a variety of experience by working on different projects, studying interdisciplinary courses, and interning in different companies both in India and the USA. Shubham has a knack for sustainability and he practices what he preaches. He follows the 3Rs for sustainability: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. His hobbies include: gardening, cooking, reading, playing cricket, and watching cartoons of the 90s era. As a One Community Volunteer Engineer, his time is dedicated to renewable energy infrastructure calculations and design and the automation of the One Community Duplicable City Center.

One Community Welcomes Adrienne Gould-Choquette to the Engineering Team

One Community welcomes Adrienne Gould-Choquette to the Engineering Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Adrienne-Gould-Announcement-640

Mechanical Engineer: Adrienne has a B.S. & M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Rhode Island, and has completed graduate coursework at Harvard University in Sustainability studies. She is a licensed Professional Engineer and LEED Green Associate. Her career path has taken her on an amazing journey which includes Ultra High Purity Engineer for Lucent Technologies, Multilevel Interconnect Development Engineer for Bell Labs, Professor and Program Director for Emerging Technologies at the State College of Florida, and presently, Principal Engineer for Adicot, Inc., a consulting engineering firm. Adrienne was awarded two patents for her innovative contributions to the Tungsten CVD process for low-temperature manufacturing applications; and was named Florida’s 2012 Post-Secondary Educator of the Year in part because of her role as founding director of her college’s Alternative Energy program. Her biggest joy and proudest accomplishment is her role as mom to her two sons, Riley and Miles. In their spare time, Adrienne and her husband restore homes to their former glory. Their most recent project was a complete restoration of a 1950s mid-century modern; preserving the architectural integrity of the original design while transforming the home into to a modern, highly energy efficient structure. Adrienne has been been a vegetarian for over 25 years, an avid yogi, and, through her research, an avid proponent of a sustainability in all aspects of life. When looking for a way to give back, she found that her skills and passions were directly inline with One Community’s vision and mission. As a One Community Volunteer, Adrienne is currently helping create CAD standards and contribute to the HVAC design for the Duplicable City Center.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM ADRIENNE!

One Community Welcomes Ramya Vudi to the Engineering Team

One Community welcomes Ramya Vudi to the Engineering Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Ramya-Vudi-640

Bachelor’s Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Certified Engineer in Training: Ramya received her Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the renowned engineering school, Vellore Institute of Technology, India. Now she is a Master of Science Student in Electric Power at University of Southern California, Los Angeles and a Certified Engineer In Training by the state of California. Coming from a family of power engineers, Ramya grew up understanding the power industry and its challenges. As an undergrad, she developed a passion for power systems; learning all she could about power system technology. This led to work experience with natural gas and coal power plant networks, conducting various case studies on these networks, and realizing that these sources of power are definitely economical and efficient but not reliable as they are exhaustible. Working towards producing “greener electricity” became an obvious next step and Ramya moved to one of the hubs of renewable energy, California. Now she brings awareness about the value of sustainable living as the President of the Energy Club at USC, organizing guest lectures, field trips, workshops, etc. As a member of the One Community team, Ramya brings her knowledge and passion for innovative solutions to the challenges of renewable energy as she is helping with research and design of the overall energy infrastructure and Duplicable City Center electrical and control and automation tie-in specifics.
