Brought to you by the Solar Center in partnership with Holocene, this one-day advanced solar thermal class is geared towards engineers, architects, code officials and inspectors, and other professionals involved in designing commercial solar thermal systems. Topics include: a review of components and mechanics of pressurized glycol and drainback solar thermal systems, heat distribution methods, solar project analysis, and a discussion of the economics and finances of commercial solar thermal systems. This class will focus on commercial drainback systems for better system performance, maintenance and durability. Participants of the workshop are highly recommended to have a strong understanding of thermodynamics, controls and design.
Instructor: Dr. Ben Gravely, a 35-year solar thermal veteran, industry leader and Director of Technology and Principal Scientist of Holocene Energy.
Credits: 0.8 CEUs, 8 PDHs, 8 AIA LUs, & 8 credit hours for NABCEP Certified Installers needing continuing education
