Teaching Tomorrow’s Building Energy Managers

Catching Up with Lane College’s Roger Ebbage:
Teaching Tomorrow’s Building Energy Managers!

Q: Why is your Lane College Energy Management Program a national model for energy education? How many competing programs are out there?

ROGER: One reason for our place in the energy education industry is that we have been the only program in the country for many years. It was not until recently that we have helped other programs with getting into the game. And then of course since we focus on quality instruction, we have a reputation of providing a solid course or program. We are also involved with the industry nationally so we stay tuned into what’s happening from a national perspective.

  • offers information on the fastest growing sectors and jobs in the clean energy/green economy that provide strategic opportunities for community colleges and their students;
  • stimulates the dialogue on the role of community colleges in creating a sustainable future;

KLCC Radio Spotlight: Green Jobs

klcc_publicradio_logoSpecial Issues: Green Jobs

From the federal to the state level, governments are giving a boost to new technology and energy sources.  President-elect Obama promised five million "green collar" jobs.  Governor Kulongoski is working to bring electric cars--and related manufacturing plants--to the state.  There are also numerous long-term and emerging "green" businesses already in Oregon.  KLCC's Jes Burns has the second in our Special Issues series on the economy.
