CEMT 201 - Energy Management & Auditing I
(3,3) 4 Credits
Prerequisite(s): ECTC 102 Air Conditioning Systems Design , ECTC 202 Heating Systems Design .
This is an entry-level course for students in the Commercial Energy Management Technology field. Responsible use of our Energy Resources is important in many respects, not the least of which is that much of it is not renewable. We as a society need to be conscientious about this fact and be good stewards of our resources so future generations are able to enjoy living on a planet that can support them and their offspring. Optimizing energy consumption in homes and buildings is also important to reduce carbon emissions and the financial burden which is the cost of operating these structures, thus increasing profitability. Saving energy makes financial sense. People who are knowledgeable about ways to save energy are a valuable and limited commodity.
This course covers an introduction to utility bill analysis, learning about common energy conservation measures, conducting walk-through level-1 energy audits, determining energy use of specific equipment, breaking out where all the energy in a structure is used, calculating energy savings, prioritizing energy saving measures, and pulling all this information into a simple report: The Energy Audit Report.
