Effective Energy Management in New & Existing Buildings

Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

Buildings use 40% of U.S. energy, of which one-third can be cost effectively savedby using energy management—an orderly process in which managers use resources at their disposal to accomplish clear, energy-saving objectives. Sustained energy management is the quickest, cheapest, cleanest way to expand our world’s energy supplies and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

This seminar weaves together energy management principles of the ASHRAE Handbook—HVAC Applications, ENERGY STAR Guidelines, and ASHRAE Standard 100, Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings. Practical experiences of successful energy managers are presented. Numerous case studies are discussed, including a hospital, high-rise building, bank, and convention center. Together, these successful examples demonstrate how to take advantage of the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager for documented performance tracking and national recognition as an ENERGY STAR.

This seminar includes ten exercises which highlight specifics presented and will lead to class discussions of choices in the exercises. The instructor will also use data loggers to collect data during the course to demonstrate real-time logging of CO2, light, temperature, and relative humidity in the classroom, and best ways to use data-logging instruments.
