Intended Audience: All Engineers
Credits: 2 PDH Units
When: Wednesday 11/10. 10 – 12 pm ET
The overall purpose of this webinar is to introduce engineers and architects to the challenges to the climate change problem best suited for solution by architects and engineers. It focuses on the origins of present greenhouse gas emissions and how to cost-effectively replace these sources with clean sources.
After a short introduction to some of the lesser-known results of global climate change, along with a summary of the Earth’s sophisticated heat balancing system, solution scenarios are developed and analyzed to show what can be achieved by 2030 as well as an analysis of the projected economic impact of NOT going green. Private sector as well as government actions needed are discussed.
Specific actions discussed include transportation electrification, the role of energy storage, zero energy buildings, trade-offs between efficiency and renewable generation and simulation of energy production and use.
