You wouldn’t ask your company’s financial controller to give you ten thousand dollars so you could go to a casino and play poker with the company’s money.
Yet when it comes to energy efficiency, many energy users are happy to spend thousands through to tens of thousands of dollars on an energy audit of their facility, without knowing much at all about what’s involved, what to expect, and how to assess the recommendations put forward in the audit.
If you rush into an energy audit this way there is at least a 50% chance that nothing will change after the audit and that your energy usage will remain as high as it was before. In other words, the gamble on the audit didn’t work out.
This course is for government, commercial and industrial energy users.
It is not for home-owners commissioning an audit of their home.
You’ll be taught by an energy auditor who has undertaken energy audits of hundreds of facilities, such as offices, schools, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, municipal buildings, factories, food manufacturers, chemical manufacturers, primary producers, etc and assisted energy users achieve measured reductions in their energy use of up to 80%.
As a production manager, facilities manager, environmental officer, sustainability manager, finance manager, general manager or CEO of your business or organization your time is important, and this course provides procedures that you can follow to save time whilst ensuring that you get value from the energy audit. Lessons are to the point and can be applied immediately.
Undertake this course if you are:
- Planning or considering to undertake an energy audit
- Have been advised to undertake an energy audit or given funding for an audit
- Are interested in reducing energy use.
- Don’t want to waste the money (and time) used to fund the energy audit.
- Would prefer to invest in, rather than gamble on, an energy audit
