Professional Development Short Courses
Energy Efficiency Training for Engineers - Course Summary & Schedule
The SBRC is offering a new approach to "energy efficiency training for engineers" with a focus on four key educational demand areas and skills gaps:
- Energy Efficiency in Electricity
- Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment
- Energy Efficiency Enhancements in Industry
- Changing User Perceptions and Behaviours to Maximise the Community's Adoption of Energy Efficient Technologies
To meet these educational needs, the SBRC is offering professional development short courses for professional engineers and other interested participants. Each short course is designed to be delivered over one or two days, with a significant component dedicated to hands-on, interactive, or discussion based activities. Each short course is offered on a stand-alone basis, while also remaining complimentary to the overall programme.
Short courses that will be on offer in 2013-2014 are included below (short courses will be held at the UOW Sydney Business School, Circular Quay, or the UOW Innovation Campus, Wollongong. Refer to course flyers for details):
Renewable and distributed generation
This course will provide delegates with a practical understanding of: the principles, practices and problems associated with renewable and distributed resources; the operation, control and protection of generation - rich electricity distribution networks; and network planning, power quality, and reliability aspects for facilitating integration. This course will cover mainly solar and wind powered integration, and energy storage applications.
7-8 Nov 2013
Energy efficiency enhancement through retrofitting of commercial buildings
This course will provide delegates with knowledge and capabilities to enhance energy efficiency of commercial buildings through retrofits, and the measurement and evaluation of actual energy performance in commercial buildings. This course will be of benefit to those wishing to reduce energy consumption in buildings, and engineers who wish to develop their skills in this area.
|Date to be confirmed but targeting Nov 2013|
Energy auditing and de-carbonization of the built environment
This course will provide delegates with in-depth understanding and capabilities in energy auditing and the measurement and evaluation of actual energy performance in commercial buildings. A key objective is to empower attendees with the understanding and skills to be able to commission and/or carry out effective energy audits so as to realise optimal economic and environmental benefits.
|Date to be confirmed but targeting June 2014|
Energy efficiency enhancement in domestic buildings
Energy efficiency in electrical energy utilisation
Smart metering and demand side management
Improving energy efficiency in manufacturing and industrial processes
