    INDUSTRIAL On-location Course

    High bays are the focus of this course, however hooded industrials, strips, troffers and even some specialized exterior lights commonly used in industrial and warehouse applications will be explored. We’ll weigh the pros and cons of various lighting options and address concerns such as wet location and explosion proof lighting, as well as wired and wireless controls.

    COMMERcIAL On-location Course

    LEDs are the end-all be-all lighting solution, right? Not necessarily. LED lighting is often the best option if customers have the money and are willing to spend it but high performance fluorescent, electronically ballasted ceramic metal halide and plasma can save almost as much wattage as LEDs and cost significantly less. We’ll discuss LEDs during this course but, more importantly, we’ll focus on best solutions for various applications instead of just comparing LED with high performance incumbent technologies.

    February 12 in Ladysmith
    Hosted by Madison Gas and Electric and Xcel Energy in partnership with Energy Center University

    When it comes to the quantity versus quality debate, both are of equal importance when it comes to power. Gain a solid understanding of electrical power quality and its impact in facilities during this half-day session. You'll learn about common power quality disturbances and their origins, as well as how to improve power quality, immunize equipment and control disturbances. We'll explain how to determine whether electrical supplies and equipment are operating within industry standards and how to distinguish between power quality disturbances that are normal and those that are not.

    Robert L. Cox PE, CEM

    Hosted by the Energy Center University in partnership with Focus on Energy


    Healthcare facility renovations and additions offer a unique opportunity to evaluate the performance of existing; and consider new energy efficient equipment, systems and controls. The incorporation of these measures into a facility renovation or addition usually presents an attractive return on investment, as well as the opportunity to integrate additional controls and measurement and verification procedures throughout an entire facility. During this webinar, various energy efficiency measures that add little additional cost to renovations or additions will be evaluated and discussed. Learn more and register today.

    December 11, 2014 │ 1–2:30 pm Central │ Live Webinar

    Hosted by the Energy Center University in partnership with Focus on Energy


    Data centers regularly use up to 200 times more electricity than standard office spaces. The good news is that opportunities exist to save energy and money in data centers without sacrificing reliability or compromising critical systems. Join us to take a look at the top ten. We’ll make the case for data center energy conservation measures and highlight those that should not be ignored. From computer room air conditioning unit upgrades to thin client provisioning and decommissioning; we’ll explain when and where energy conservation measures apply, weigh the pros and cons and provide examples to substantiate our claims.

    November 12

    Presenter: Saranya Gunasingh and Scott Schuetter


    Extreme weather events are an area of concern in the built environment and substantially impact building performance and energy consumption over time. There are no guidelines or policies that explicitly address the impacts of climate on energy use in buildings. So, how do we reduce our vulnerability and increase our resilience to this unpredictable operating expense? Join us online to find out: 

    During this webinar, we’ll discuss the projected impacts of climate variability on building energy use and demonstrate a variety of building models that take climate change into consideration. We’ll take a close look at the impacts of future climate variability on energy peak demands, overall consumption, and costs. Real-world examples will also be examined, including a recent climate and energy resilience study completed at NASA's Stennis Space Center Campus.
