Accurate energy measurement and analysis is essential for any energy improvement program. Accurate and continuous measurement of sub-systems energy demand and efficiency has been proven to lead to sustainable and highly efficient buildings.
Unfortunately, it is a common practice to only measure power demand (kW) or energy consumption (kWh) of whole buildings.
Therefore, there is a severe lack of skills and knowledge in accurate measurement and analysis of energy demand and efficiency of subsystems such as chiller plant kW/RT, fans W/CMH or lighting W/m2.
Without equipping energy engineers with the skills to accurately measure and analyze energy demand, the industry will be mired with disagreements about energy efficiency claims.
Participants will be equipped with the understanding of:
