Energy Audit Tools Course

We’ve developed this energy audit tools course to help energy auditors buy or hire energy audit tools to know what to look for, how to best use different tools, and avoid common mistakes in tool purchases. Energy auditors with knowledge of energy auditor tools should end up with a toolkit that hasn’t cost an arm and a leg but helps them do better audits.

ISO 50002, Energy Audits, provides very little guidance about what tools an energy auditor should use when undertaken an energy audit – this course addresses that gap! And for those undertaking an energy review as part of deploying an ISO 50001 Energy Management System, this course will help you understand which tools are useful when undertaking an energy review, and how to go about selecting the right tools.

What You’ll Learn

  • The characteristics you should be looking for in any tool
  • Practical guidance on usage of measurement tools
  • For each category of measurement tool: How useful, what to measure, what tool to use, what can go wrong and how to avoid this.
  • How to take CSV data and convert it into useful information.
  • What free spreadsheet tools are available for energy auditors.
  • The importance of presentation and communication tools – and where to find some great tools.

Tools for Energy Auditors Description

Most energy users wanting to hire an energy auditor expect him to have available various tools to aid in identifying and quantifying energy savings opportunities. But there is little guidance on what tools are needed and how to assess a tool for its suitability. 

Without this knowledge, you may end up buying tools that are rarely, if ever, used, or perhaps you end up with regularly used tools that are cumbersome and hard to use. 

This energy audit tools course provides guidance on the characteristics you should be looking for in a tool. It discusses each category of measurement tool that auditors commonly use:

  • Electrical measurement tools for measuring voltage, amps, true RMS power, power factor
  • Water flow measurement tools focussing on ultrasonic flow meters.
  • Temperature sensors and loggers
  • Infrared thermometers and infrared cameras / thermal cameras
  • Airflow measurement, including turbine anemometers and hot wire anemometers
  • Air pressure measurement
  • A range of other measurement tools 

Our Tools for Energy Auditors course then looks at data collection tools, software tools, and tools that aid in communication and engagement. 

Following this energy audit tools course, you should have a good idea of the tools you need and how you can best use them to aid your energy audits.

Continuing Education (CE) or Continuing Professional Development (CPD) refers to additional formal learning activities that are required to maintain a professional certification or accreditation. 

CE or CPD comes in many names but represents the same thing. Here are some of them that may be used in your country: 

  • CPD – Continuing Professional Development
  • CEU – Continuing Education Units
  • PDH – Professional Development Hours
  • CEP – Continuing Education Programs
  • CPC – Continuing Professional Competency

Many of our courses provide Continuing Professional Development credits, points, hours, or units. To learn more about Continuing Education and Continuing Professional Development, please read here.

Certification

When you pass all the quizzes in this course, you’ll get a certificate of achievement on course completion, with a QR code that when scanned validates its authenticity. Use this certificate to demonstrate to employees and others your growing sustainability credentials!

This Course Is Perfect For:

This energy audit tools course is for energy auditors who aren’t working in a company that has their own tool set, those new to auditing, and those who may be stuck with the same tools they were using years ago and are curious to see what other tools may be of use, or what advances there may have been. 

This energy audit tools course is for you if any of the following apply:

  • You have no prior energy audit experience
  • You are about to spend a lot on a tool and would like reassurance you are doing the right thing
  • You are unsure if you have all the tools you need
  • You want to learn about software tools available for energy auditors
  • You are seeking practical tips on the selection and use of tools

This energy audit tools course doesn’t provide detailed instructions on the use of specific tools. That’s best left to the manufacturers and the instructions they provide with the tools. On the other hand, it does help you understand what tool is right for the job. It also provides practical guidance on the use of tools.

As suppliers and availability of tools vary from country to country, this energy audit tools course doesn’t provide guidance on specific brands.

Become an Investment Grade Energy Auditor

If you want to further improve your energy systems management and optimization skills, we highly recommend completing our Investment Grade Energy Auditor (IGEA) certification. 

By acquiring a IGEA certificate, you’ll be qualified to conduct professional energy audits for corporations, manufacturing plants, buildings, and other establishments in the industrial sector. 

This Tools for Energy Auditors course is the fourth part of the IGEA certification program (part four of eight).
