FEMP Offers Training on Energy Efficiency Expert Evaluations

April 11, 2014 - 4:00pm


The U.S. Department of Energy Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is presenting Energy Efficiency Expert Evaluations: A Customized Assessment Approach, a First Thursday Seminar, on June 5, 2014.

Energy efficiency expert evaluations are innovative, multidisciplinary assessments that combine the best elements of retro-commissioning and energy audits. By attending this First Thursday Seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Establish key performance goals and assemble a well-qualified team during the planning phase
  • Conduct a kick-off meeting and a site walk-through during the discovery phase
  • Conduct inspections and tests, collect operational data and trends, trouble-shoot problems, and conduct operations and maintenance training during the correction phase
  • Prioritize a "short-list" of low-cost and no-cost opportunities and report all results in a "master list of findings" during the hand-off phase.

This seminar is instructed by Ed St. Germain, CPE, director of energy and environment support at Enviro-Management & Research, Inc. He has more than 37 years of experience in reliability-centered maintenance, retro-commissioning, and energy-saving alternatives in the Federal sector.

After completing a course evaluation and multiple-choice assessment, participants will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible for continuing education units.

First Thursday Seminars are designed for Federal energy and facility managers but are open to all individuals through the FEMP Training. Seminars are hosted in partnership with the National Institute of Building Sciences' Whole Building Design Guide.
