Hiawatha, Iowa - This one-day workshop is the introductory workshop to MREA wind systems training and is a prerequisite for all other MREA wind workshops. W 101_03 Introduction to Wind Systems is designed as the first step in a professional track or for people who have an interest in residential size wind systems for their home or business. The workshop will define wind energy, describe how residential wind energy systems work, and provide a basis for making informed decisions about the design, sizing, and siting of wind energy systems.
Kansas City, MO - This American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) workshop will bring all siting professionals up-to-speed on pressing issues, such as eagles, radar, and sound. The main Siting Workshop program will delve deep into key siting topics and address the dynamics of the intersection of proposed wind projects and the surrounding environment.
Omaha, NE - Solving the transmission equation can make the difference between a viable wind energy project and one that stays on the drawing board. This American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) workshop will provide you the tools to solve the equation, and help you identify friendliest regions to develop wind energy, who is building transmission, where and when will power flow over those lines, and much more.
Denver, CO - Attendees of the Community Wind Across America conference for the Rocky Mountain region in Denver, along with others, are invited to join the U.S. Department of Energy on Thursday October 28, 2010 to brainstorm and develop concepts for federal legislative involvement in the distributed wind landscape that you believe would accelerate distributed wind deployment.
Austin, TX - This workshop will give you an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the challenges facing occupational health and safety professionals in the wind industry. Customize your learning experience with concurrent tracks featuring sessions on construction, electrical, manufacturing, operations and maintenance, risk management, and other safety topics featuring the latest updates on standard practices that directly impact the safety of your wind project.
Oklahoma City, OK - Wind experts share their knowledge of the industry's evolving needs, and describe state-of-the-art techniques and technologies that use wind assessment data to make wind energy projects possible. The first day's educational program will dig into the remaining challenges of what has become the consistently applied and traditional wind assessment and energy analysis. On day two, the focus shifts from the traditional challenges and explores "new frontiers" including operational assessment, advances in modeling techniques, and remote sensing.
Guemes Island, WA - This Solar Energy International workshop will guide participants through the process of building a small wind turbine from scratch. Brief sessions each day on wind generator theory will be followed by shop sessions. The workshop group will construct one to three working wind generators. Participants will gain hands-on experience carving wooden blades, winding coils, and wiring. The turbine built in the workshop will produce up to 1,500 watts in higher winds.
Guemes Island, WA - This Solar Energy International workshop includes a brief review of basic wind-electric system design principles and practice, and then focuses on maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of these systems. This is an advanced workshop, intended for experienced wind-electric system users, designers, and installers, or for those who have attended SEI's Residential Wind workshop. Classroom sessions will complement extensive hands-on work.
Paonia, CO - Participants in this Solar Energy International workshop will learn to design and install residential wind systems that range from 10 to 70 feet in diameter and produce up to 100 kWh/day in capacity. The workshop will cover system sizing, site analysis, installation and safety issues, and hardware specification. Learn about the different available residential wind turbines, how they work, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Miller, SD - This one day workshop will appeal to elementary/middle/high school science and technical education teachers who are interested in renewable energy, physics, engineering and design. NO knowledge of wind energy is required to attend the course.
From the grain grinders of ancient Holland to the wind farms being constructed all around South Dakota, wind power has captured the public imagination with its simplicity and elegance. Dig deeper into the wind and introduce your students to the science behind the fastest growing energy resource in the world.
