4 Easy Steps to Complete a PDHengineer webinar

Energy consumption in the United States and the rest of the world is increasing at an unsustainable rate. In the United States, as of 2017, 69 % of the electrical energy produce was by burning coal, natural gas, and petroleum. Nuclear energy accounted for another 20 %. These nonrenewable energy sources will someday either be depleted or become too difficult to extract from the earth. Something needs to be done to find ways to produce energy that do not use nonrenewable natural resources.

This webinar is mainly concerned with finding new ways to generate electrical power without using nonrenewable natural resources. Solar, wind, conventional hydro, geothermal, hydrokinetic, and the use of renewable biomass are all considered. Since our way of life is at stake, it is imperative that the known methods of generating renewable energy be developed and new ideas be generated. Working together, we can do it. Too often we have said that renewable energy generation will not occur in my back yard. Well, it is no longer my back yard, but our back yard. Whether it’s a windmill, a geothermal plant or an array of solar cells, we might need them in our back yards. Moreover, for all that we know, someone might figure out how to use the earth’s magnetic field or its movement through space to generate electrical energy. The human spirit will always find a way.

It is the intention that the material presented in this webinar will help engineers better understand the contemporary techniques of generating renewable energy — also the importance of understanding some of the challenges that we all face in the 21st century. If nothing else, the sheer amount of natural resources that are being used to generate electrical power should be seen.
