Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

This course offers techniques for the adoption of energy optimization and the introduction of specialized energy-saving systems in the Middle East. The training weaves together energy management principles found in ASHRAE Handbook—HVAC Applications, U.S. ENERGY STAR® guidelines, and ASHRAE/IES Standard 100-2018, Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings, a standard used internationally to guide organizations in reducing overall energy costs by providing procedures and programs essential for energy efficiency, maintenance, management, and monitoring.

The course provides numerous how-to solutions from successful energy managers who achieved a reduction in energy consumption by implementing sustainable energy technologies. These solutions demonstrate how to take advantage of the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager for documented performance tracking and recognition as an ENERGY STAR in a hospital, high-rise building, bank, and a convention center.

Among other course features are interactive exercises that uses data loggers to collect data during the course to demonstrate real-time logging of CO2, light, temperature, and relative humidity in the classroom, as well as the best ways to use data-logging instruments.
