Manufacturing and government services such as water and wastewater utilities require energy. Energy costs are continuing to rise to almost unacceptable levels. The electric energy sources currently being used have significant climate change issues. Managing a facility’s energy is becoming an increasingly important issue for everyone. This course offers a unique approach that has proven highly successful in addressing quality, environmental management and occupational health and safety issues. It follows the Deming Plan-Do-Check-Act approach. It is expected that this approach will assist in addressing the energy management issues facing us all. This course is based upon the US EPA document “Ensuring a Sustainable Future: An Energy Management Guidebook for Wastewater ad Water Utilities”, January 2008.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
