1. Online education: Fan Efficiency: Lowering Fan Energy Use

This course starts September 12, and will review fan basics, introduce the proposed Department of Energy (DOE) regulation, and suggest how to use the DOE metric to drive air moving system efficiency up. Emerging utility rebate programs that will be coming, along with fan performance monitoring tools, also will be introduced. 

2. How to avoid self-sabotaging your engineering career

Success has different meanings for different people. To an engineer, success should mean professional recognition of his or her technical expertise, to rise to the highest possible position in the company, to have a hassle-free and litigation-free career, to have a stable domestic life, and, of course, to be financially comfortable. 

3. Your questions answered: LED lighting specifications 

Additional information from the July 28 Lighting: LED specifications webcast includes details about color shift, American Medical Association recommendations, and lighting controls. Presenters Haley Darst and Richard Vedvik tackle multiple questions. 

4. MEP Giants Program

The MEP Giants program lists the top 100 mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP), and fire protection engineering firms in the United States. The in-depth analysis of these firms appears in the August issue and reveals what's going on in the industry and how it has changes over the past few years. Special emphasis is placed on commissioning firms in a separate report each October. 

5. Is an LED right for your next retrofit project?
