Meeting the Energy Needs of Warehouse Facilities with Propane (Print Course)

This course will examine the rapidly expanding warehouse vertical and identify opportunities for using propane in these buildings. Many warehouses are built in rural areas because there are fewer space constraints to accommodate these large facilities, and land is less expensive, but these locations are sometimes not serviced by natural gas pipelines.

We will discuss the challenges of designing warehouses and distribution centers in rural areas, especially those that do not have natural gas service, and how propane can help meet energy and resiliency needs. In addition, this course will explore the many applications for propane in warehouses and distribution centers and case studies where propane was used in warehouse facilities nationwide.

Propane Micro-CHP for Homes and Commercial Buildings

This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Micro-Combined Heat and Power (Micro-CHP) technology brings onsite power generation to homes and businesses. Local generation means convenient, high-efficiency energy at a low cost with minimal waste. Thanks to propane fuel, micro-CHP brings these advantages to locations that have limited access to natural gas, such as rural communities, and areas with poor power supply.

Using multiple case studies, this course covers the hows and whys of micro-CHP systems. We'll detail how power is generated, the best uses for it, and why it makes sense in a wide range of locations and situations. We'll also include limitations and how they are overcome.

Planning Considerations for Community Propane Systems in Large Residential Developments (Print Course)

Gas appliances like ranges, fireplaces, and furnaces are important amenities that many home buyers want in a new home. However, in some residential developments, natural gas access may not be feasible and on-site propane storage may also have challenges. Community propane systems offer an innovative method for supplying propane to every home in a community through a centralized delivery system. Community propane systems allow developers to offer gas access to builders, who in turn can sell gas amenities to buyers. In the end, both benefit and homeowners reap the rewards of gas appliances and other desired technologies in their home.


This course discusses how community propane systems work; use cases for these systems; value propositions for developers, builders, and owners; and common propane applications for residences and community buildings.
