About This Course:
Energy is not only a significant cost for most businesses, perhaps only behind the labor and real estate, but one that is rising above inflation, which is very high. In addition, energy is also a commodity that in some areas is shrinking in availability, causing a potential existential threat for some businesses.
At the same time, there has literally been a revolution in energy technology in just the last few years, making improvement in efficiency readily possible. Many entities are beginning to understand that improved energy efficiency not only saves them direct costs, but will reduce other expenses and can improve productivity, too. This comes by performing a good energy audit.
This webinar will explain some basics in determining one’s energy profile, new technologies to reduce energy usage and demand, and approaches for a successful energy audit.
Learning Objective 1
Learn the basics of energy usage and demand.
Learning Objective 2
Learn what the wide-ranging benefits are of implementing a smart energy efficiency program, at the personal, business, and community/societal levels.
Learning Objective 3
Learn the means and methods and understand the process of performing energy audits properly.
Learning Objective 4
Learn how to write a proper energy audit report and the key information that should be included in such type of document.
About the Speaker:
Marc Karell, P.E., CEM, EBCP
Owner of the consulting firm Climate Change & Environmental Services, LLC
He is a licensed professional engineer (P.E.) in the State of New York with over 30 years of technical consulting experience in the areas of energy, climate change, sustainability, and air and environmental compliance. He is also a Certified Energy Manager and an Existing Building Commissioning Professional with a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University. Marc has extensive experience performing ASHRAE Level I, II, and III energy audits for diverse building types (such as office buildings, schools, warehouses, and multi-families) in the New York City Metropolitan area and nationally.
Marc also performs building retro-commissioning evaluations, to assure building owners that their systems are operating optimally (they are getting their money’s worth). Marc has combined both his energy auditing and retro-commissioning experience to help dozens of buildings comply with New York City’s Local Law 87, mandatory energy auditing and retro-commissioning for large buildings, discovering many opportunities for savings in buildings. Marc uses this knowledge to perform project management projects for clients to ensure that energy savings are fully realized in the actual implementation of upgrades.
Marc also performs greenhouse gas emission inventories (carbon footprints), green building assessments, and has led training to ensure that operators understand how to maintain their energy upgrade strategies so that they continue to benefit the building in the future. Marc also performs evaluations of air emissions from commercial and industrial processes, including emission inventories, design of air pollution control equipment, permitting, and evaluation of potential health effects of air toxics. Marc has performed successful projects for such major firms as ExxonMobil, Alberto-Culver, IBM, Cytec, the United Nations, and the New York Archdiocese.
