Specification, application and use of products that reduce the amount of carbon are considered to be "Green." Green buildings incorporate a green infrastructure which is made up of plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems that have green components or produce green results.


Several considerations are given to green buildings such as the site selection; quality and conservation of water; systems, materials and resources; energy efficiency; and indoor environmental quality.

The Green Awareness exams consists of Green concepts, systems, terminology, products, and how mechanical technicians interact with green systems and are approved of by the United Association (UA) and Green Mechanical Council

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
