Energy Efficiency Alberta covers 50% of the course fees for residents of Alberta only. The discount has already been applied on the listed fees.


The GHG Monitoring, Targeting & Reporting course trains in efficient techniques for analyzing and managing energy consumption. It includes topics on ongoing energy monitoring and factors in key consumption drivers such as climatic data and activity indicators. This training provides the basis for integrating energy efficiency into the management structure of any organization.


Measurement and targeting is used to:

  • Analyze the energy performance history of the operations and the facilities
  • Set the energy consumption reduction objectives
  • Control the current energy performance
  • Develop the energy budgets
  • Build a statistically valid energy performance model to capture and accurately report your energy saving activities using existing facility data

Who should attend?

  • Building managers/operators, technical industry managers or energy managers
  • Engineering firms and professional firms specialized in energy efficiency
  • Energy efficiency maintenance personnel
Please note that this interactive workshop is limited to 18 participants.
