Essential Techniques and Calculations for Energy Managers & Commissioning Authorities

Abstract: The potential to reduce energy consumption in existing and new commercial buildings is enormous. On average, 30 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Getting at potential energy savings requires careful analysis, astute interpretation of data, effective project execution and thorough measurement and verification of results. This webinar will provide an overview of this process along with multiple real-time calculations that support it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the importance of energy management and its synergy with commissioning
  • Key qualifications and services for an energy manager
  • Energy planning, auditing and savings persistence – process and strategies
  • Understand the importance of professional technical certificates and the experience, training and competencies they represent
