COURSE TITLE: Advancing Systems and Technologies to Produce Cleaner Fuels
COURSE NO: P03-003
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Advancing Systems and Technologies to Produce Cleaner Fuels
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on advancements made in systems and technologies related to oil and natural gas development to produce cleaner fuels. It pays special attention to advancements aimed at reducing the environmental impact associated with the production of oil and natural gas. It also discusses the safety conditions for those involved in the development process.

 

Fossil fuel resources account for 82% of total U.S. primary energy use because they are abundant, have a relatively low cost of production, and have a high energy density—enabling easy transport and storage. The infrastructure built over decades to supply fossil fuels is the world’s largest enterprise with the largest market capitalization. Of fossil fuels, oil and natural gas make up 63% of energy usage. Across the energy economy, the source and mix of fuels used across these sectors is changing, particularly the rapid increase in natural gas production from unconventional resources for electricity generation and the rapid increase in domestic production of shale oil. The United States will, for the foreseeable future, continue to rely heavily upon oil and natural gas to support its economy, national security, and energy security.

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.

LED Troffer Retrofit Lighting and Controls: Best Practices
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides basic information on LED troffer retrofit lighting and controls best practices.

 

Lighting use constitutes about 20% of the total source electricity consumption in commercial buildings.
