UTICA, N.Y. — Mohawk Valley Community College announced that it is offering a professional development seminar for engineers and contractors in the state of New York called “Hydronic Heating Supplied by Renewable Energy Sources,” presented by John Siegenthaler, P.E.

Hydronic heating has been used for many years to deliver comfort using conventional energy sources such as gas and oil-fired boilers. Hydronics can also supply heat from renewable energy sources such as solar thermal collectors, heat pumps, and solid fuel (wood and pellet) boilers. This full-day seminar will show how to use each of these renewable heat sources as the primary energy source for space heating and domestic hot water production. It will show how to implement state-of-the-art concepts and hardware to maximize the potential of the renewable energy source. It will also show how to integrate auxiliary heat sources in ways that ensure consistent comfort, but also minimize the use of conventional energy. Attendees will come away with a number of system concepts, and the design information needed to put them into practice.

Lunch will be provided to attendees, and seven professional development hours are available to engineers. This seminar will take place at Mohawk Valley Community College’s Utica Campus on Wednesday, April 2, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost is $249.

Enrollment is limited and will be taken on a first come, first serve basis. For more information or to register, call 315-792-5300 or visit mvcc.edu/cced. Office hours are 8:30 a.m.-7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Friday.
