Course Description

In recent years, energy consumption in the Middle East is rising exponentially due to rapid industrialization and high population growth rate. The level of energy consumption in the MENA region is one of the highest worldwide. However, the efficiency of energy production and consumption patterns in the region requires significant improvements.

As a result, the ASHRAE Global Training Center developed an energy management course that offers techniques for the adoption of energy optimization, and the introduction of specialized energy-saving systems in the Middle East region. The course weaves together energy management principles of the ASHRAE Handbook—HVAC Applications, ENERGY STAR guidelines, and ASHRAE Standard 100-2018, Energy Efficiency in Existing Buildings that guides organizations in reducing overall energy costs, carbon emissions, and energy risk.

The course provides numerous how-to solutions for successful energy managers that 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 ten 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, and the best ways to use data-logging instruments.
