Workshops

  • Adjustable Speed Drive Applications and Energy Efficiency training on June 26 in Yakima, WA. This course addresses the choices available and relevant issues regarding the use of adjustable speed drives (ASD) with electric motors, and demonstrates the energy cost savings and other benefits made possible by this technology. In this course we explore how adjustable speed drives work and ways to assess the savings. Variable frequency drives (VFD) are the most common speed control method and is the major focus of the course content which will cover the benefits of pulse width modulation technology and well as discovering and mitigating harmful electromagnetic interference that can cause motor failure.  Additional information on evaluating and specifying VFDs is provided.  This course is coordinated by the NEEA Industrial Training project and is co-sponsored by Avista, Chelan County PUD, Pacific Power, Bonneville Power Administration, Washington State University Energy Program, and Northwest Food Processors Association.

  • Compressed Air Challenge - Level 1 training on July 17 in Spokane, WA. Are your compressed air energy costs under control? Even the smallest compressed air system is a relatively large source of energy consumption and cost. Make your company more profitable with the Compressed Air Challenge™, a series of seminars that applies proven techniques to achieve cost-effective solutions. Optimizing your compressed air systems can lead to higher productivity, energy savings, increased product quality and greater efficiency. This training offers attendees the opportunity to use their own system data in seminar exercises, as well as mastery of compressed air system components and techniques. Attendees can apply training and implement changes immediately upon return to their work place.

  • Energy Efficiency of Chilled Water and Cooling Towers training on October 28-29 in Spokane, WA. Chilled Water Systems, which provide cooling for industrial and commercial facilities, often account for a major portion of the energy consumed in these facilities. Attendees will learn how technology improvements can reduce energy costs by more than half. Topics include chiller machinery, refrigerant options, the impact of using variable speed for compressors, and system pumps. In addition, a case study will be presented that shows how an energy-efficient chiller was selected. This training is coordinated by NEEA Industrial Training project and sponsored by Avista, Inland Power and Electric Company, Kootenai Electric Cooperative, Bonneville Power Administration, Northwest Food Processors Association, and Washington State University-Extension Energy Program.
    • Register for October 28 ($139 registration fee) Energy Efficiency of Chilled Water Systems training.
    • Register for October 29 ($139 registration fee) Energy Efficiency of Chilled Water Systems training.
    • Register for both October 28 and October 29 ($199 registration fee) Energy Efficiency of Chilled Water Systems training.
  • All recorded webinars and any upcoming webinars can be found at NEEA NW Industrial Training.
