This section contains information resources to support research on equipment and methods to reduce energy consumption, increase energy efficiency, and enable the substitution of more plentiful or environmentally favourable energy sources.
piping is a system of pipes used to transport a medium (liquids and
gases) from one location to another. But Process piping just doesn't
mean only pipes. It also includes valves, fittings, and other
components to assist in the conveyance of the medium. Some of you
have seen piping in your kitchen laundry room or washroom.
Residential piping is relatively simple in comparison to process
piping. The process piping routes are often running in all
directions and require various kinds of instrumentation to monitor

The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy.
Fossil fuels are nonrenewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle,
becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy
resources—such as wind and solar energy—are constantly replenished and will never run out.
This information will educate you about the basics of the various renewable energy sources: solar, wind, hydrogen, geothermal, ocean, and hydropower
