Contact: Ed Armstrong (EMA) 202 737-1334, ed@EnergyMgmt.org

(Washington, DC August 23, 2019)— The Energy Management Association announced it will conduct a 2-hour training webinar on September 19, 2019 instructed by EMA President Robert Knoedler, PE, EMP, CxA, of Hanson Professional Services. The webinar will review calculations, formulas and unit conversions needed for ASHRAE level audits and commissioning (Cx) activities. Among the many topics covered are: establishing an energy baseline, analyzing utility consumption, energy performance benchmarks, identifying/evaluating energy conservation measures (ECMs). The potential to reduce energy consumption in existing and new commercial buildings is enormous. On average, 30 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Getting at potential energy savings requires careful analysis, astute interpretation of data, effective project execution and thorough measurement and verification of results. This webinar will provide an overview of this process along with multiple real-time calculations that support it. Read more

(Washington, DC May 22, 2019)— Building performance drift is the nemesis of energy efficiency. It occurs when finely tuned and commissioned building HVAC systems lose performance over time. The negative impacts of performance drift lead to wasted energy and millions of dollars in additional energy costs. For one building, the costs can be high, for enterprises managing multiple buildings, these costs can be devastating.

These topics will be the focus of a webinar sponsored by the Energy Management Association (EMA) and BuildingFitTM on June 19, 2019. This webinar covers key strategies and technologies behind Banner Health’s successful turnkey monitoring-based commissioning program (MBCx). Banner Health is a non-profit health system based in Phoenix, AZ. It operates 28 hospitals and employs more than 50,000. Its MBCx strategy has resulted in millions of dollars in annual energy savings. Read more
