Overview

The Energy Efficiency for Building Operators & Maintenance Staff (EEBOM) program is a hands-on and highly interactive course designed to engage, motivate, and empower building operators and managers.

Whether you are taking the one or two day version of the program, our instructors will facilitate participant understanding of how energy behaves, how energy is used in their facility and how it can be controlled through operational action across a variety of building systems. Throughout the program, a variety of physical demonstrations, calculations, worksheets, role playing and case studies are presented to bring to life the energy savings opportunities that exist within lighting, pumps and fans, building envelope components, HVAC and refrigeration, building automation systems, ventilation, and more.

Building operators and related maintenance and facility staff know their building better than anyone. As such, they are uniquely positioned to discover and act on energy savings opportunities that will reduce maintenance costs and the overall operating costs of their building.

A unique aspect of this training program is the Energy Hunt - which brings participants out of the classroom and into the practical day-to-day operations of a building, thus allowing participants to take part in a detailed examination of a building. The lessons learned from this exercise is then brought back into the classroom where participants learn how to conduct savings calculations for the energy saving opportunities identified during the Hunt.
