Energy Operations Green Technology

  • We extensively explore alternative energy including wind, solar, geothermal, and bio-fuels
  • We are using small roof mounted wind turbines and photovoltaic panels to power a number of our lab trainers. These trainers teach not only the concepts of wind and solar power, but also hydrogen production, fuel cells, ethanol and biofuels production, and hydroelectric power
  • Our curriculum focuses on lowering emissions from conventional power production facilities. It also includes instruction in how power plant operators must run their facility in an efficient manner to limit the quantities of hazardous emissions which contribute to the greenhouse effect
  • A considerable amount of time is spent studying the concepts of power production using gas fired turbines which burn syngas, a derivative of the coal gasification process, in order to decrease CO2 and NOx emissions
