10/18/2010 Archived Entry: "First PEIK Short Course Proves Successful"
The Power and Energy Institute of Kentucky (PEIK) offered its first short course last Thursday, entitled "Introduction to Renewable Energy." It was taught by Dr. Paul Dolloff, of EKPC and Adjunct Faculty member in the UK Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The course provided an overview of renewable energy technology and outlined the basic principles of solar electricity, wind power electric generation, micro-hydro electric generation, and their application in Kentucky.
PEIK brings together faculty from traditional engineering departments (Biosystems & Ag, Civil, Chemical, Electrical and Computer, Mechanical, and Mining) as well as from the Center for Applied Energy (CAER) and Center for Sustainable Manufacturing to create new labs, courses and update existing courses to help meet the need of power engineers in the utilities and manufacturing sectors.
Other courses are planned. You may follow the courses as they are planned, by going to the PEIK web site
