Renewable Energy Resources & Sustainable Design

Posted: 1/30/2024

TRAINING: February 22, 2024, 9:00AM - 11:00AM PT [CLOSED]

Join us this February 22nd as Dr. Hamid Rahai presents "Renewable Energy Resources & Sustainable Design", a 2-hour online course covering the elements of sustainable design and their consideration in building projects, including the modeling and evaluation of building energy performance using the industry standard simulation tool eQuest.

Course topics include:

  • Introduction to e-Quest
  • Building Energy Performance & Simulation (BPS)
  • Design Considerations for Optimizing Energy Performance
  • Energy Use Intensity (EUI) & Time dependenty Valuation
  • PV Systems, Passive Solar Design, Solar Water Heating
  • Mandatory Requirements for Solar-Ready Buildings
  • Wind Energy Basics & Wind Turbine Systems
  • California Climate Zones

This course is ideal for:

  • Industry professionals who secure, plan, or implement construction projects
  • Engineering students interested in learning about sustainable design

This course is third in a series of SETA modules designed to help transportation & construction engineers, planners, and project managers identify and reduce the environmental impacts of construction projects and roadway development.

Dr. Hamid Rahai

Dr. Hamid Rahai is founding director of the Center for Energy & Environmental Research & Services (CEERS) and a professor at CSULB’s Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering and Biomedical Engineering departments.


The free QUick Emergy Simulation Tool is "the most popular energy modeling program in existence", in use by energy modelers & engineers worldwide.

Built on the DOE 2 simulation engine, eQUEST allows you to perform detailed analysis of state-of-the-art building design technologies using today’s most sophisticated building energy-use simulation techniques, without requiring extensive experience in the "art" of building performance modeling.

Sustainable Engineering

The Sustainable Engineering Training Academy (SETA) provides transportation & construction engineering communities with module-based training in the areas of green buildings, environmental impacts of construction, and structural health monitoring systems.

Taught by industry & academic experts, SETA students gain practical knowledge in specific industry demand areas for career enhancement and improvement.
