    The Energy Efficiency Challenge: Understanding New Codes and Standards (UPDATED)

    The current U.S. energy consumption is not sustainable and the impact of our energy consumption is driving unprecedented changes in housing design and construction methods to reduce home energy use, create greater efficiencies, improve comfort and reduce monthly expenses for the homeowner. This course will take a closer look at residential energy use and how the changes in building codes and standards are driving improved energy performance in homes. We will take a look at new design and construction methods, materials, and systems that can be used to help reduce the energy requirements of homes and make them more efficient. Enroll

    A Comparative Analysis of Residential Heating Systems

    In colder climates, space heating represents almost half of the annual energy costs for a residence, so selecting the right heating system for new construction or retrofits is an important decision. Today, that decision is more complex than ever with a wide range of systems on the market and new factors, such as carbon emissions, playing a growing role. To help you choose the right heating systems for your residential projects, this course presents highlights and conclusions of a 2013 research study performed to identify the best options based on several key variables.

    Choosing to Live Off-Grid: Energy Generation and Fuel Choices

    Living off the grid has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Energy independence, pursuit of a more sustainable life style, moving away from the city and economics are all cited as common reasons for choosing to live off grid. Off-grid and standby generators can be used in combination with renewable energy sources for successful off-grid living. This program compares and contrasts types of generators, and fuel choices for off-grid living. Enroll

    Community Propane Systems: Economic, Environmentally Responsible Energy

    This course will familiarize you with community propane systems, including outlining the advantages of using propane over natural gas; installation requirements; and discussing how propane systems affect the environment and the economy. It will also introduce design and building professionals to the benefits and advantages of community propane systems, also known as jurisdictional systems, central pipe systems or master meter systems. These systems are extremely flexible and offer highly energy efficient options to an entire community, instead of only individual homes. Enroll

    Designing and Building High Performance Homes with Propane

    This course will explore how propane is effectively used in residential construction, specifically for: space heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, fireplaces, power generation and outdoor living.

    Today, several innovative technologies make propane a reliable, versatile and affordable choice for homes. Throughout the US, in areas without affordable access to natural gas, high-performance propane energy applications are being installed in homes to meet efficiency requirements for tax credits, green building codes and sustainable building programs.

    Propane Energy Pod Homes: An Energy and Environmental Analysis

    Bundles or collections of building systems in homes can form the basis of an energy package or “pod.” These can be the foundation for homes delivering energy and CO2 emissions savings that outperform typical new homes in the marketplace.

    Building energy analysis was used to evaluate the energy and environmental performance of Propane Energy Pod prototype homes at two sizes, across different climate zones. These results were compared with standard homes featuring typical technology packages.
