As a result of this course, you will be able to:
Who should attend?
Facility managers and engineers; HVAC system designers, engineers and contractors; energy efficiency specialists; building owners; maintenance and operations personnel; energy and sustainability managers; and anyone with interest in power and submetering systems.
Want to reduce energy and operational costs, improve power and equipment reliability and minimize expensive downtime? Whether you’re a facility manager or business executive, of course you do. Join us to discuss how power monitoring systems need to play an integral role in your facility in order to do so. We’ll reveal benefits, challenges and best practices; and provide practical advice and solutions to get your facility up-to-speed.
First, we’ll review energy, demand and power factor including their impacts on system operations. Then we’ll examine typical power monitoring systems; diving deep into when, why and how to use submeters. Real-world software, hardware, dashboards and success stories will be shared, as well as thoughts on how to make the business case for a power monitoring system to upper management. Finally, we’ll share current market trends and a glimpse of what we expect to see in the future.
