Course Content

This course looks at the basic principles of identifying information sources and using that data to expand the organisation's understanding of what is happening related to the consumption of utilities and the output of the organisation.

Most of the subject matter covered involves the use of simple spreadsheets and associated graphing tools to provide an analytical approach and summary output. The prime objective of the course is to provide the delegate with simple, no cost tools to carry out effective day to day energy management with the least effort.
