The course provides the delegate with an overview of energy benchmarking methods. It discusses Low and Zero Carbon Technologies that can be incorporated into an energy strategy plan whilst seeking to provide an understanding of how services, systems and their building contribute to their energy footprint. 

Learning Outcomes

At the successful completion of this course, the delegate will be able to: 

  • Be able to advise clients on the requirements and potential benefits of incorporating energy efficiency measures and Low & Zero Carbon technologies into new or existing buildings 
  • Have sufficient understanding to discuss the direction of future regulations and planning policy and the implications for projects 
  • Have a sufficient understanding of available measures, technologies and the key considerations and implications of each to advise clients and design teams 
  • Be able to undertake an energy study and understand the appropriate calculation methodologies, benchmarks and assumptions to apply  
  • Be able to prepare an energy strategy report 

The course is suitable for building services engineers, developers, architects, building energy managers and energy consultants
