In Energy Conservation in Industrial and Commercial Environments, you'll learn ...
- Electrical energy conservation initiatives – motors, lighting, power distribution and demand side management (DSM)
- HVAC energy conservation initiatives and the fundamentals of Building Management Systems and Energy Management Systems
- Steam and compressed air energy conservation initiatives
- The advantages and feasibility of emerging energy technologies
- How to perform an energy audit of your facility
Energy conservation is an ongoing concern in industrial and commercial environments. It is important, therefore, to take steps to increase energy efficiency where possible. This interactive webinar provides concrete explanations and examples of how to keep your company’s energy usage under control.
After a review of basic energy and electricity concepts, we will discuss various ways to reduce energy consumption and maximize profits. In particular, we will look at utility rate schedules, energy performance contracting, lighting and daylighting, HVAC systems, cogeneration cycles, energy monitoring systems, renewable and emerging energy technologies, and energy audits.
This webinar is relevant for professional engineers of any discipline, as well as technicians, facilities managers, and other professionals who want to enhance their understanding of energy and utilities concepts.
