  • A guide to offshore wind energy

    A Guide to Offshore Wind Energy: 2 PDH

    $12.00
    Offshore wind turbines harness the energy of the ocean winds and turn it into electricity. This course introduces the basic principles of proposed US offshore wind facilities. The course summarizes a study conducted by EESI of existing European and Asian offshore wind farms. The topics addressed include technical issues related to marine foundations and structures, transmission issues unique to offshore power generation, political and regulatory issues and the public's perceptions of proposed offshore wind farms. This course demonstrates that offshore wind energy has been successfully implemented in other parts of the world and that the potential for wind farms in U.S. waters is favorable.Instructor: Juan Pesante, PE

  • Building Envelope HVAC

    Building Envelope Impact on HVAC Energy Use: 3 PDH

    $18.00
    How airtight are the buildings you are responsible for? What is the energy load and indoor air quality like in your buildings? The only way to know is to perform a study. Despite common assumptions, measurements have shown that typical U.S. commercial buildings are not particularly airtight. In this course we present a recent simulation study on the impact of improving envelope airtightness in U.S. commercial buildings. You get documented, verifiable facts, report charts and graphs illustrating the findings, and a discussion from the report on the results of the study, Investigation of the Impact of Commercial Building Envelope Airtightness on HVAC Energy Use.Instructor: Seth Grablow, PE
