POMONA, N.J. - Geothermal Technology II For Design Professionals, a review of Geoexchange technology with overviews of multiple case studies, will take place June 25, 2007, in Morristown, N.J. The course is being hosted by Jersey Central Power & Light.

The training also will focus on design details such as heat gain/loss data, test bore and thermal conductivity testing, borehole layout, software applications, and ventilation issues. The course will include computer design software updates and life cycle costs. “The attendee will become familiar with GHP (geothermal heat pump) technology as it relates to LEED certified buildings,” planners said.

Attendees should already have some knowledge of geothermal technology, the planners said. A quick overview will be given, but then the course will move deeper, faster. Instructors include Lynn Stiles, Ph.D., of the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, and Howard Alderson, P.E., of Alderson Engineering Inc.

Group discounts are available. Organizations with three or more employees attending will get a special group discount if they register by the early registration deadline. The price for each employee will be reduced to $99. Early registration costs $125. After June 21 the cost is $150.

For more information, contact Diane Hulse-Hiller, geothermal project coordinator and conference secretariat, at 609-652-4677; diane.hulse-hiller@stockton.edu; or visit www.stockton.edu/geothermal.
