DC Energy Seminar - November 28th, 2012, 1:00-4:00 p.m. EST

The Road to Energy Efficiency Part I

National Building Museum, Washington DC
401 F Street, NW, Washington DC

The DowntownDC ecoDistrict and CoR Advisors present a three part seminar series in Washington, DC on "The Road to Energy Efficiency". Part I of the series addresses the critical first step in energy management establishing a baseline energy profile and implementing a program for regular energy monitoring and reporting. The building baseline can be used as a comparison against other properties, help identify initial areas for improvement, and serve as a means by which to measure the success of energy conservation measures. You'll learn how to capture real time energy data from your buildings and how to use that information to identify problem areas, improve performance, and achieve better operational efficiencies. With the new mandatory benchmarking and reporting requirements, it's important to understand the value of monitoring on a building-by-building basis, interpreting that data, and using that information to effect change.
