AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


BERNARD F. KOLANOWSKI is a mechanical engineer and private consultant in the field of cogeneration. Prior to beginning his consulting practice, he held positions with Ingersoll-Rand, Environmental Control Products, Riley Stoker Corporation, Solar Turbines and Capstone Turbine Company, and during that time acquired substantial experience with cogeneration related projects. His professional activities have involved both manufacturer/contractor as well as client-side consultation related to a variety of cogeneration installations. His diverse hands-on experience in the field has given him a broad understanding of the practical aspects of applying cogeneration to a myriad of situations involving hot water, hot air, chilled water and resource recovery as the "second" energy derived from a cogeneration system.

Presented online in a series of three live two-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to guide you though each critical step of the process of planning and implementing economically and technologically sound on-site generating capacity.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


Many forward thinking companies are now seriously re-evaluating how they will be obtaining their electricity in the years ahead. Cogeneration and other forms of self generation are increasingly becoming an attractive option for may businesses. This informative seminar will bring you up to date on current cogeneration and on site power technologies and examine the present regulatory picture, as well as the economic and supply security aspects of generating your own power.

You'll learn how to go about planning, designing and implementing cogeneration and on-site power projects, both to insure your own power supply, and potentially as a player in the growing distributed generation marketplace. You'll be given the technical, financial and legal expertise you need to evaluate your options and maximize the return on your investment.

The instructor will present you with a systematic approach for weighing alternatives in the design of cogeneration and on-site generation systems, as well as for evaluating the economic feasibility of action in your specific situation.

Each course participant will receive a complimentary specially-prepared Cogeneration Project Assessment Excel file.
