Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: On-Site Renewable Energy Generation

COURSE NO: R03-009
Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: On-Site Renewable Energy Generation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can use on-site renewable energy generation to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air quality and energy security. This course describes these technologies and gives actual examples of communities in which the technologies have been successfully implemented.


Renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, and landfill gas, reduce GHG emissions by replacing fossil fuels. Renewables also reduce emissions of conventional air pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide, that result from fossil fuel combustion. 


This 3 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.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Reducing emissions of GHGs and other pollutants
  • Hedging against financial risks
  • Improving power quality and supply reliability
  • Implementing on-site renewable energy technologies: wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, landfill gas, and low-impact hydropower
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy: On-Site Renewable Energy Generation” which is based on the Environmental Protection Agency document, “On-Site Renewable Energy Generation, A Guide to Developing and Implementing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Programs”, from the EPA’s Local Government Climate and Energy Strategy Series, 2013.
