This course introduces the principles of energy management and will take you step by step through the process of developing and energy management plan to achieve more efficient energy consumption and lower total operating costs.

Course Outline
After participating in this course you will be able to:
• recognize and understand the energy management process and all components of a comprehensive energy management plan/program
• implement an effective and successful planning strategy for energy conservation and efficiency
• apply available tools to gain competitive advantage by seizing external and internal opportunities so as to improve the efficiency of
   buildings operations
• determine through assessment techniques the energy management matrix that will allow you to set goals and energy targets
• transform your buildings/facilities into sustainable and optimal energy performers

Description Energy management in buildings is the control of energy use and cost while maintaining indoor environmental conditions to meet comfort and functional needs, significant energy and dollars savings are available through energy management. The most important single ingredient for successful implementation of an energy management program is the plan.

This course introduces the principles of energy management and will take you step by step through the process of developing and energy management plan to achieve more efficient energy consumption and lower total operating costs. The instructor will show how to incorporate and develop a fully integrated energy plan. This approach can be equable valuable for both to large multi-facility organizations, as well as to small, single-owner operations with just few employees.

Objective To provide participants with the knowledge to meet the requirement for an energy management plan for commercial and institutional and industrial buildings and the tools associated in the process for development, quality control and implementation.

Who Should Attend
Energy engineers, energy managers, engineers, plant managers, commissioning engineers, building/facility managers, engineers and architectural consultants , project managers, operating and maintenance personnel and other individuals interested and involved in energy efficiency and conservation of commercial and institutional buildings. 

Instructor: Juan Orozco P. Eng, CEM, LEED® AP

The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
