Energy Data Management

As the saying goes, you can’t manage what you don’t measure. Energy data management can include energy management information system (EMIS) technologies, benchmarking and utility tracking tools, fault detection and diagnostic systems, building automation systems, and more. Explore the latest webinars on energy data management by pressing MORE.


Refrigeration

Commercial refrigeration uses roughly 1.3 quads per year of source energy, representing about 7% of total commercial building use in the U.S. Explore all previously recorded webinars on this topic by pressing MORE.
 


Zero Energy Buildings

Zero energy buildings (ZEBs) produce enough renewable energy to meet their own annual energy consumption requirements, thereby reducing the use of non-renewable energy in the building sector. Watch webinars on becoming zero-energy-ready by pressing MORE.



 

Data Centers

Data centers in the U.S. account for nearly 2% of all electricity use; data center energy consumption is growing as more information is shared and stored online. Explore all previously recorded webinars on this topic by pressing MORE.
 


K-12 Schools

Energy efficiency in K-12 schools produces savings that can be reinvested in teachers, students, and classrooms, helping to ease the burden presented by rising utility costs and limited operating budgets. Watch all previously recorded webinars for K-12 schools by pressing MORE.


Smart Labs

A typical laboratory is 3-4 times more energy-intensive than an average commercial building and can account for up to 70% of a campus’s energy footprint, making laboratories a key focal area for energy and carbon management strategies at universities, national labs, hospitals, and more. Explore all previously recorded webinars on this topic by pressing MORE.



 

Communications & Engagement

Effective communication and stakeholder engagement are critical components to gaining buy-in, support, and recognition for your energy efficiency projects. Watch webinars about how to make your communication and engagement efforts successful by pressing MORE.


Financing

Each building sector faces different challenges and opportunities regarding financing for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Explore all previously recorded webinars on this topic by pressing MORE.
