Description

Energy management in buildings is the control of energy use and cost while maintaining indoor environmental conditions to meet comfort and functional needs, significant energy and dollars savings are available through energy management. The most important single ingredient for successful implementation of an energy management program is the plan.

This course introduces the principles of energy management and will take you step by step through the process of developing and energy management plan to achieve more efficient energy consumption and lower total operating costs. The instructor will show how to incorporate and develop a fully integrated energy plan. This approach can be equable valuable for both to large multi-facility organizations, as well as to small, single-owner operations with just few employees.

Course Objectives

Towards the end of the training, the participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and understand the energy management process and all components of a comprehensive energy management plan/program
  • implement an effective and successful planning strategy for energy conservation and efficiency
  • apply available tools to gain competitive advantage by seizing external and internal opportunities so as to improve the efficiency of buildings operations
  • determine through assessment techniques the energy management matrix that will allow you to set goals and energy targets
  • transform your buildings/facilities into sustainable and optimal energy performers
  • To provide participants with the knowledge to meet the requirement for an energy management plan for commercial and institutional and industrial buildings and the tools associated in the process for development, quality control and implementation.
