Identifying suitable opportunities for energy conservation requires both an understanding of the primary tools and techniques for conducting an energy conservation opportunity assessment (ECOA) and methodologies for evaluating and prioritizing available opportunities. Buildings account for approximately 40% of the energy used in the US each year, and reductions in electricity and fuel consumption can reduce a building’s carbon footprint and save money. Commercial building owners who adopt aggressive energy management programs often reduce energy consumption by as much as 50%! The first step in any such program is to perform an ECOA.
The Energy Conservation for Buildings™ course is intended for building managers, environmental professionals, engineers, real estate managers, and others interested in methods for identifying energy saving opportunities.
The course includes ECOA training modules, practical exercises for applying ECOA methods, and open discussion.
