Engineers Ireland, in partnership with Tipperary Energy Agency, have scheduled the following blended learning webinar. This online course aims to enhance the knowledge base of the construction sector in Ireland with respect to heat pumps in homes and commercial buildings.
This blended learning programme consists of:
- Online modules to be taken in advance of –
- Expert Led Half day Q&A session on 16th July 2020. This is a virtual classroom in which participants will require access to a webcam and microphone for live sessions with the trainer throughout the morning.
Participants will receive login details via email. As with the traditional classroom delivery of our courses, class sizes are limited to allow opportunity for all delegates to participate.
At the end of the programme, attendees will have learned how to:
1. Develop a knowledge of a trajectory of heating systems in Ireland, how to encourage the use of low carbon heating systems in Ireland. Understand the Life cycle cost of heating systems and the planned shadow price of carbon that will impact public sector buildings, or carbon taxes in other buildings. Understand the benefits to a practice of becoming expert in low carbon heating systems.
2. Understand how and what type of heat pump to specify for a given building archetype and why. The advantages and disadvantages of the various different types of systems and an overview of the cost impacts of the different types. Understand the emitter design requirements coupled with this system, with the performance impact of different emitters. Ensure the system design performs as required.
3. Understand the differences required of sizing heat pumps versus fossil fuel systems and develop an overview knowledge base of modeling techniques to size heat pumps to optimise capital and running costs. Understand the impact of the various different fabric, air tightness and ventilation systems and their impact on heat pump design and sizing.
4. Understand limitations and advantages of electrical installations and the cost and implications of rising (or lowering ) Import capacities. How to optimise the installation of heat pumps for low running costs and pre-heating buildings on night rate electricity.
5. Maximise the performance of the installation using research outputs from the SuperHomes 2.0 research project. Understand the impact of poor and expert commissioning, how to ensure that the designs perform to expectation. Understand of future trends of smart grid and how buildings of the future will react to energy pricing and lowering carbon emissions.
