CESA 0199 – Residential Renewable Energy
The rising utility rates, economy and growing concerns about carbon emissions are causing more homeowners to consider alternative and renewable energy resources to power their homes. The example of renewable energy sources discussed in this weekend long course include: Solar energy (thermal, photovoltaic), wind power (water pumping and electrical generation), hydro power (electrical generation), geothermal energy (heat and electrical generation), biomass (heat and fuel) and hydrogen (transportation). Factors that homeowners should take into account for each of these energy resources when considering them for residential applications; tips and suggestions for effective renewable energy retrofit project management will be provided. The important market trends and solutions as well as financial approaches in the renewable energy industry are introduced.
