The Energy Management Association announced that in recognition of Energy Efficiency Day, Oct. 2, the organization is making its recent webinar, “Essential Techniques and Calculations for Energy Managers & Commissioning Authorities” available free online. 

The two-hour training webinar is instructed by EMA President Robert Knoedler, PE, EMP, CxA, of Hanson Professional Services. The webinar reviews calculations, formulas and unit conversions needed for ASHRAE-level audits and commissioning activities. Among the many topics covered are: establishing an energy baseline, analyzing utility consumption, energy performance benchmarks and identifying/evaluating energy conservation measures.

Viewers have the option of taking a short quiz afterward to earn two CEUs that apply to a wide variety of professional certifications including the Energy Management Professional, administered by EMA, and the Certified Commissioning Authority (CxA), administered by its affiliate the AABC Commissioning Group

“We are proud to offer this valuable resource to the energy management and commissioning universe on Energy Efficient Day,” said EMA Executive Director Edward Armstrong. “Energy efficiency is arguably the most powerful fuel for reducing consumption and emissions and making all manner of enterprises more effective and productive. EMA’s webinar gets to the essence of how to make that happen.

“We hope that many viewers of this webinar will use it as a springboard to pursue the EMP certification and in doing so turn the spirit of Energy Efficiency Day into a career,” added Armstrong.

The next opportunity to attend the EMP seminar and take the EMP exam is Nov. 12-13, 2019, at NFMT Orlando.
