This (Twelve-hour) course will serve as an informative guide for developing a comprehensive energy management strategy and an integrated approach to upgrading existing buildings. The staged processes outlined in this course will provide the user with an enormous source of information on proven energy-efficient technologies that can produce energy savings of 35% or greater.
In 1996, EPA partnered with Department of Energy to increase the product offerings of the Energy StarŪ label. The label was expanded to include new homes, commercial and institutional buildings, residential heating and cooling equipment, major appliances, office equipment, lighting, and consumer electronics. Green Lights, ClimateWise, and all labeled products have been consolidated under one umbrella; Energy StarŪ. Now, the suite of products and offerings all bear the Energy StarŪ logo. From labeled buildings and homes to labeled products, the Energy StarŪ logo makes it easier for businesses and consumers to recognize the symbol for exemplary energy performance, saving money and pollution prevention.
This course is based entirely on the Energy StarŪ Building Upgrade Manual, dated December 2004 published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
