Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Energy Efficiency
This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can achieve multiple benefits by improving the energy efficiency of their new, existing, and renovated facilities and their day-to-day operations. This course describes strategies for developing and implementing energy efficiency programs and gives actual examples of communities in which similar programs have been successfully introduced.
Saving energy through energy efficiency improvements can be more cost effective than generating, transmitting, and distributing additional energy from power plants. Energy efficiency also helps reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and improves energy security and independence.
This 5 PDH online course is intended for civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, and municipal engineers concerned with reducing the environmental impact of their local government through the introduction of sustainable technologies.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Improving energy efficiency in existing and new local government facilities
- Assessing baseline energy performance
- Setting goals
- Creating an action plan
- Implementing the action plan
- Evaluating progress
- Recognizing benefits of green buildings
- Learning with case studies
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: Energy Efficiency” which is based on the Environmental Protection Agency document, “Energy Efficiency in Local Government Operations, A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs”, from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series, 2013.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of twenty five (25) questions to earn 5 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on this EPA publication.
Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
