Because of their unique requirements for lighting, ventilation, and equipment, laboratory buildings use a considerable amount of energy. The reliability of that energy is very important. Laboratories must be able to conduct research without power interruptions, which can damage both equipment and experiments. Generating power and heat on site is one good way to enhance reliability; it can also improve fuel utilization while trimming utility costs.
This course is based on the document Laboratories For The 21st Century: Best Practices – On Site Power Systems For Laboratories, DOE/GO-102003-1773, December 2003.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
