To be an effective energy manager, you must have the skills and expertise to keep pace with advances being made in the building industry. Just as important however, you need a solid process to follow that best serves the intent of the building owner.
THE ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROCESS:
The Energy Management Process was designed by commissioning and energy management experts who saw a need for energy managers to go beyond the traditional energy audit process and provide the management required to meet the needs of the building owner effectively and efficiently. This unique process—explained in the Energy Management Guideline--includes building commissioning, which helps to ensure that in addition to achieving energy efficiency, the building will operate at optimum performance.
The 7-step process includes project assessment, energy use exploration, site investigation, analysis, Cx & ECM implementation, final acceptance and continuous energy management. Each of the phases are explained in detail during the seminar.
THE SEMINAR & CERTIFICATION EXAM:
The intensive one-and-a-half day seminar helps candidates understand the energy management process and how it can be applied. In addition, it serves as final preparation for the Energy Management Certification Exam.
