Economic circumstances require companies and organizations of all types to improve their cash flow. Luckily, energy is not a fixed cost and can be managed just like any other business operation. This course provides time-tested and applied ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings, notably under varying occupancy levels.
Drawing from the experience of our expert instructors as well as from highly relevant material from NRCan’s Dollars to Sense program, CIET has created a 1-day workshop to help you take control of energy use to improve financial performance and reduce your operational costs.
Upon completion of this workshop and supporting activities, participants will be able to:
- Identify energy savings in the operation and maintenance of their buildings;
- Apply a 7-step approach to identify energy savings
- Foster behaviours that reduce energy consumption in buildings
- Use BAS information appropriately to adjust energy usage to building occupancy
Who should attend?
This course is relevant to all those in charge of energy in commercial and institutional buildings.

There will be an optional but appreciated 45-min informal networking session at the end of the first day so you can get to know your fellow participants better; it starts after the Q&A at around 5:15 pm CST.
