UW Engineering Professional Development Course: The Commissioning Process for Delivering Quality Constructed Projects

Monday, April 16, 2018 to Wednesday, April 18, 2018

This practical course will show you why the Commissioning Process (CxP) provides consistent, cost-effective, and successful delivery of new buildings and constructed projects, and enhances productivity of existing buildings. You will learn how to implement an effective and successful quality design and construction approach that incorporates the commissioning process, and learn why the commissioning process is ideal for innovative buildings, new systems, and complex facilities.

MREA Online Course: Basic Photovoltaics

Monday, April 16, 2018 to Sunday, May 13, 2018

This self-paced, online course uses a combination of presentations, assignments, quizzes, and webinars to teach the basics of solar electricity. Participants will learn how photovoltaic (PV) systems work, compare and contrast different PV system types, identify necessary components, and understand the best applications for (and limitations of) each system type. Other topics include evaluating the solar window, investigating energy efficiency recommendations, and researching system costs.

UW-Madison Engineering Professional Development Course: National Electrical Code

Monday, April 16, 2018 to Wednesday, April 18, 2018

This course is designed to help you work safely and more efficiently by applying the 2017 National Electrical Code to your daily work. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to design electrical systems that are code-compliant, keeping in mind the liabilities associated with noncompliance. The course also touches on how the NEC is organized, changes from previous editions, requirements for new and existing installations, “how to design” information for electrical systems, and valuable information on how the NEC relates to other standards.

MATC Sustainability Summit: Moving Toward a Sustainable Economy

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 to Thursday, April 12, 2018

This summit, hosted by Milwaukee Area Technical College, will highlight economic trends and business opportunities in energy, water, infrastructure, transportation, and workforce development. Presentations will emphasize examples of successful sustainability programs and initiatives in southeastern Wisconsin to raise awareness of opportunities for involvement in sustainability efforts.

MREA Online Course: PV Site Assessor Training

Monday, April 9, 2018 to Sunday, May 6, 2018

This self-paced, online course uses presentations, assignments, quizzes, and webinars to demonstrate how to perform a PV site assessment for a home or small business, using the MREA PV Site Assessment Report Template.

Topics covered include load profiles and consumption history, energy efficiency and fuel switching opportunities, site-specific shade analysis, array and balance of system location recommendation parameters, and client financing options. Participants will learn how to access and use online tools for assessing the solar resource, perform site-specific PV system sizing, determine energy production of a recommended PV system size, estimate system costs, and evaluate existing infrastructure on the site.

ENERGY STAR Webinar: Ask the Expert

Wednesday, April 4, 2018 to Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Every Wednesday at 11:00 am ENERGY STAR holds a live webinar for users to ask questions to EPA Portfolio Manager experts. This is a public forum style webinar with a question and answer format.

ENERGY STAR Webinar: Portfolio Manager 101, 201, 301

Tuesday, April 3, 2018 to Tuesday, April 17, 2018

US EPA's ENERGY STAR program is hosting a webinar series on Portfolio Manager consisting of three separate programs each held on a separate date and more advanced than the previous one. ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager is an online tool developed by EPA and used nationally by building owners and cities to measure, track, and compare energy and water consumption, as well as greenhouse gas emissions. It is used to benchmark the performance of one building or a whole portfolio of buildings, all in a secure online environment.
