Renewable Energy Business Education Announcement

Windustry has a variety of connections to the many organizations that encourage the growth and expansion of community wind energy development. Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA is one such institution. Their announcement of a new educational program which we thought might be of interest to many visitors to our website follows.

Saint Francis University Graduate School of Business, Loretto, Pa. is pleased to announce it will be offering a new course - Wind Energy Business. This pioneering curriculum is the first in a timely series of four courses in a renewable energy business development certificate program. Beginning September 11, 2008, this offering will be presented on-line, with no on-campus requirements and is tailored for professionals interested in this exciting new field.

The on-line series begins with a course entitled "Introduction to Wind I" which will consist of 10 weekly two hour on line live sessions presented by Mr. Dan Ancona (an internationally recognized renewable and wind energy expert). Each session will be archived so that students may view the sessions at any time (24/7) if they are unable to participate in the live session. Also, the programs will be accessible from any location that has internet access.

Academic credit is available to those enrolled in graduate or undergraduate program at Saint Francis University.
