Energy Management Best Practices

Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

Buildings use 40% of US energy, of which one-third can be easily saved. To achieve this goal, building professionals can utilize energy management. This is 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 course weaves together energy management principles of the ASHRAE Handbook-HVAC Applications, Energy Star Guidelines, and practical experience of successful energy managers. 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”.
