The initial successful steps for your energy and water management program are establishing a baseline and identifying opportunities for improvement. This session will compare the different audit approaches available, discuss best practice processes, and review audit methodologies. Energy audits are comprehensive evaluations of the actual performance of a facility’s energy—using systems and equipment—compared against the designed performance level or the industry best practice. The purpose of this course is to review the different types of energy audits; the overall auditing process—as well as auditing methodology, in order to successfully prepare and participate in the energy audit process.
