Extension Programs in Renewable EnergyWebinarPreviewImage-20160204

Webinar Date: February 4, 2016

Janet Nagele begins by discussing the renewable energy education program which began five years ago in Oregon. The focus of the program is energy literacy with youth. There are 14 lessons put together with a student engagement design.  These materials are all available through the web-link listed below. Mary Wrege follows with an explanation of her work in agricultural energy efficiency. She works mainly with dairy farms and her initiative has been to encourage the use of renewable thermal energy for heating water.  She explains the E3A Energy Action Pyramid for Home, Farm and Ranch. For some dairy farms water heating can account for 25% of their total energy usage. Thermal energy is being used for cleaning milking systems to radiant floor installations for calf barns. Mary explains the solar thermal demonstration unit she uses in her energy education program.
