Renewable Energy Technologies Training, Jan 30

 E108 Renewable Energy Technologies Used in Ontario

Thu, 30 January 2020, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EST

This course will provide participants with an overview of renewable energy and energy storage technologies. Applications will include power generation, combined heat and power, and thermal heating and cooling. Real world case studies will be used to describe how the technologies are deployed in a practical way. Relevant government regulations, including Ontario’s new Environmental Activity Sector Registry will be discussed with considerations for Licensed Engineering Practitioners. Off-grid applications will be reviewed for remote northern communities and mining sites. No laptop is required for this course. Notebook, pen/pencil and calculator are recommended. Photo shooting is not allowed during training.

Course Outline:

  • Introduction to renewable energy fundamentals – including units of measure and electric grid basics
  • Overview of renewable energy in Ontario – understanding where we are and how we got here
  • Government policies, regulations and guidelines – including REA, EASR and net metering
  • Renewable energy technology overview – including wind turbines, solar (PV and thermal), bioenergy, ground and air source heat pumps, energy from waste and microhydro

In Canada, 40% of GHG emmissions are generated by buildings. Most of these emmssions are due to the combustion of natural gas for space heating, as well as for domestic hot water and manufacturing process heat.

New technologies can more efficiently combust these hydrocarbon fuels in order to reduce CO2 and other emmissions.

Just as importantly, upgrading the building envelope of a structure in order to reduce heat loss, and the need for additional heating can help reduce emmisions. Key strategies include upgrading wall and roof insulation, increaing the insulating propoerties of windows, recycling heat through destratification fans and entrance door air curtains.
