EMA Celebrates Energy Efficiency Day by Offering Free Resource
“Essential Techniques and Calculations for Energy Managers & Commissioning Authorities” Webinar Available Free on Line
The Energy Management Association announced that in recognition of Energy Efficiency Day, the organization is calling attention to its free 2 hour webinar, “Essential Techniques and Calculations for Energy Managers & Commissioning Authorities.”
On average, 30 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Taking advantage of potential energy savings requires careful analysis, astute interpretation of data, effective project execution and thorough measurement and verification of results.
“We are proud to offer this valuable resource to the energy management and commissioning universe on Energy Efficiency Day,” said EMA Interim Executive Director Anna Kosova. “Energy efficiency is arguably the most powerful fuel for reducing consumption and emissions and making all manner of enterprises more effective and productive. EMA’s webinar gets to the essence of how to make that happen.
The 2-hour training webinar is instructed by EMA President Robert Knoedler, PE, EMP, CxA, of Hanson Professional Services. The webinar reviews calculations, formulas and unit conversions needed for ASHRAE level audits and commissioning activities. Among the many topics covered are: establishing an energy baseline, analyzing utility consumption, energy performance benchmarks, identifying/evaluating energy conservation measures (ECMs). Viewers can take a short quiz after to earn two CEUs.
The next opportunity to virtually attend the EMP Seminar is November 9-10, 2020. (Registration). Approved candidates may then schedule a remote exam at one of 900 local testing centers.
