This course is ideal for all energy professionals who have an interest in wind energy operations, ranging from small use-specific operations to large contributors to the regional grid. Individuals and companies interested in integrating energy generation from multiple sources (wind, oil and gas, etc.) will find the information very useful for adding revenue sources and increasing efficiency.
Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Define key aspects of the growing wind industry, including different locations and scales of production.
  • Describe the current use of wind energy.
  • Identify and list past and current incentives for using and producing wind energy.
  • Recognize companies developing and investing in wind energy, as well as estimate the business benefits of such investments.
  • Identify the scientific fundamentals of the exploration, development, and distribution of wind power.
  • Describe the scientific, technological, and business components of wind energy, e.g., turbine manufacturing and installation, wind farm management, purchasing and distribution of wind energy.
  • Cite current applications of wind power in the energy industry.
  • Discuss and analyze case studies involving the integration of wind power and non-renewable sources of energy.
  • Devise methods for the integration of wind power in order to anticipate future changes in the energy market.
Course Content

Unconventional oil and gas resources represent a significant resource for the future, particularly as technological innovations make reservoir characterization more accurate, and completion / production techniques more cost-effective.

Key Topics
  • shale gas
  • shale oil
  • coalbed methane
Course Structure

This course is offered at the beginning of every month. You may sign up for it at any time, and your course will begin the first day of the upcoming month. This course is designed to be equivalent to a 3 credit-hour graduate-level seminar.

You will receive feedback from your instructor, and upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate.

  • Unit I: Definition of Unconventionals
  • Unit II: Shale Gas
  • Unit III: Shale Oil
  • Unit IV: Coalbed Methane, Other Unconventionals

Required Work: For each unit, readings, research/review of recent articles, and a short paper in response to guiding questions.
