ACEEE Webinar: Incorporating Energy Efficiency-Driven Pollution Reductions into State Implementation Plans

Friday, April 20, 2018

On Thursday, April 19, the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) will release a new report, Mission Attainment: Incorporating Pollution Reductions from Energy Efficiency in State Implementation Plans. The report identifies geographic areas where energy efficiency can deliver the greatest pollution reductions to help states to comply with federal air quality regulations. Join ACEEE  for an overview of the analysis and report findings, tools available to states for incorporating energy efficiency in state implementation plans, and additional areas beyond NAAQS where energy efficiency can help states to meet air quality goals.

UW Engineering Professional Development Course: The Commissioning Process for Existing Buildings

Thursday, April 19, 2018 to Friday, April 20, 2018

Course attendees will learn an effective approach to access the potential benefits of commissioning existing buildings, and develop a plan to identify opportunities and execute activities in all phases for existing buildings and retro-commissioning programs. You will also learn how to implement a campus, city, or corporate-wide commissioning process program. The cost and benefits of the process, and the role in performance contracts for energy and retro-commissioning programs, will be discussed.

M-WERC: Energy Efficiency Conference

Thursday, April 19, 2018

This Mid-West Energy Research Consortium (M-WERC) event will explore topics related to energy efficiency including energy efficiency trends and programs in the Midwest, industrial energy efficiency, commercial building energy efficiency, and energy efficiency policy. The event will be followed by a luncheon for organizations interested in dialogue and discussions on industrial energy efficiency topics. The meeting will be held at the M-WERC Energy Innovation Center in Milwaukee.

Getting to Zero National Forum

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 to Thursday, April 19, 2018

Three days of tours, workshops, networking, interactive sessions and thought leadership about the growing trend toward zero energy (ZE) buildings. Luminaries in this field will set the stage with a vision for the future of the built environment. Policymakers and practitioners will highlight the strategies for catalyzing a transformation to ZE performance.

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.

International Biomass Conference & Expo

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

The International Biomass Conference & Expo connects current and future producers of biomass-derived power, fuels, and chemicals with waste generators, energy crop growers, municipal leaders, utility executives, technology providers, equipment manufacturers, project developers, investors and policy makers. More than 120 exhibitors are expected at the conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

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.

International Biomass Conference: Live Stream

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

The International Biomass Conference & Expo connects current and future producers of biomass-derived power, fuels, and chemicals with waste generators, energy crop growers, municipal leaders, utility executives, technology providers, equipment manufacturers, project developers, investors and policy makers. For those unable to attend the conference in Atlanta, Live GotoWebinar streams of entire topic tracks and pre-conference sessions are available for purchase. Available tracks/sessions include: 

Biomass Carbonization and Torrefaction Summit 
Biomass Preparation, Handling & Storage Workshop 
Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass 
Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal
Track 3: Biogas & Waste-to-Energy
Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals

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.

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.
