Learn about the renewable energy technologies you can use in your business, new building or commercial-scale development.

This program provides a solid background in renewable energy technologies for commercial-scale applications. Get an overview of renewable energy, from an exploration of the benefits, to a view of technologies that work well in Wisconsin’s northern climate. Learn how renewable energy technologies fit into the LEED™ design process and the software tools used for assessing renewable energy potential. Find out about design considerations, potential system performance, and the economics of installing a system in today’s solar market.

Participants will also be introduced to renewable energy systems that generate heat for space and process heating. Technologies covered include solar heating of water and makeup air, heating systems that use wood and other biomass as fuel, and ground source heat pumps.
