Training & Education
The Energy Management Guideline describes a unique, comprehensive phased process for carrying out energy management projects in existing buildings. The process combines advanced energy analysis, test and balance principles for accurate field testing and data collection, and the commissioning methodology to ensure that the entire process is carefully coordinated and documented to meet the owner’s requirements and goals.

The trend continues for state and local governments to require commercial building owners to benchmark their buildings using ENERGY STAR’s Portfolio Manager, and to submit the results for public disclosure. These disclosure laws are driving demand for both benchmarking services as well as efficiency projects to help building owners improve upon the performance levels revealed through benchmarking. In some jurisdictions, requirements include regular energy audits or retro-commissioning for buildings that aren’t certified or don’t achieve a certain score. Commissioning and energy services providers can take advantage of this trend by understanding which localities have disclosure ordinances, what the reporting deadlines are, and by offering timely services to support compliance and improvement of scores. This webinar will provide viewers with the resources to identify disclosure laws by location, type and requirements.
