Local Government Climate & Energy Strategy: On-Site Renewable Energy Generation

Mark P. Rossow, Ph.D, PE Retired

This online engineering PDH course describes how local governments can use on-site renewable energy generation to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve air quality and energy security. Renewable energy resources, such as solar, wind, biomass, hydropower, and landfill gas, reduce GHG emissions by replacing fossil fuels. Renewables also reduce emissions of conventional air pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide, that result from fossil fuel combustion. This course describes these technologies and gives actual examples of communities in which the technologies have been successfully implemented.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
