COURSE TITLE: Guidelines for Selecting Cool Roofs
COURSE NO: M02-042
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Guidelines for Selecting Cool Roofs
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents an overview of cool roofs, which can help many building owners save money while protecting the environment. It illustrates how cool roofs work, what kinds of cool roof options are available, and how to determine if cool roofing is an appropriate energy efficiency option for your building.

 

Just as wearing light-colored clothing can help keep a person cool on a sunny day, cool roofs use solar-reflective surfaces to maintain lower roof temperatures. Traditional dark roofs can reach temperatures of 150ºF (66ºC) or more in the summer sun. A cool roof under the same conditions could stay more than 50°F (28ºC) cooler.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, architects, designers, contractors, building owners, and all personnel interested in gaining a better understating of cool roofs.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding what is a cool roof
  • Learning about the different types of cool roofs
  • Knowing if you should use a cool roof
  • Learning about cool roof selection and application
  • Knowing the precautions and considerations behind cool roofs
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Department of Energy (DOE) Publication “Guidelines for Selecting Cool Roofs”, Building Technologies Program, published on July 2010.

COURSE TITLE: Solar Power Installations on Closed Landfills
COURSE NO: R02-005
Solar Power Installations on Closed Landfills
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of the technical and regulatory facets of constructing solar farms on closed landfills. The different types of solar technologies are discussed, and their suitability for installation on a landfill cap is indicated.  General guidance on some of the most common engineering obstacles of landfill reuse is provided.  Finally regulatory and liability issues arising from building on a brownfield or Superfund site, that has been cleaned up or is undergoing cleanup, are discussed.

 

Estimates for the total number of closed landfills in the United States run as high as 100,000.  These landfills are attractive locations for siting solar power installations because 1) landfills are typically in areas where community concerns over aesthetic impacts are less likely, 2) the land often cannot be used for other purposes such as commercial or residential development, and 3) using landfills for solar power installations removes pressure to convert greenfield sites to power production.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended primarily for civil, electrical, environmental, and mechanical engineers involved in solar power generation projects.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about ground mounted systems
  • Understanding the different solar technologies

COURSE TITLE: Continuous Energy Improvement in Motor Driven Systems
COURSE NO: E08-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Continuous Energy Improvement in Motor Driven Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents the fundamental information and necessary guidance required to assist the Manufacturing and Process industries in optimizing their electric motor driven systems which leads to substantial energy / cost savings.

 

Electric motors are among the least well-managed industrial equipment, even though motor-driven equipment accounts for approximately 70% of the electrical energy consumed by process industries and approximately 90% for electrical intensive industries. Motors that are not properly managed can result in billions of dollars in wasted energy and operating costs to an industry.

 

A detailed analysis of the U.S. motor systems inventory indicates that this energy use could be reduced by 11% to 18% if plant managers implement all cost-effective applications of mature and proven energy efficiency technologies and practices. It is worth noting that the suggested improvements are not necessarily limited to the U.S., but can be implemented in any industry around the world that utilizes motor driven systems.

 

This 8 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, mechanical, and industrial engineers as well as other technical personnel interested in learning more about improving the operation of motor driven systems.
