301: Maximize Usage with Advanced Features (this webinar)
Having learned how to set up a building and maintain accurate details and share records in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager (ESPM), this third and last workshop exposes participants to how they can go further with Portfolio Manager to produce more complex reports and templates as well as begin to set baselines and checklists for their buildings.
During this session, participants are also exposed to the Sustainable Buildings Checklist feature, which helps to build and asset managers establish common strategies for operating and maintaining buildings in a sustainable manner with a focus on energy efficiency and water. The Checklist is built around five key markers: integrated assessment and operation principles, optimized energy performance, water conservation, enhanced indoor environmental quality, and reduced environmental impacts.
Portfolio Manager is a management tool designed to measure and assess the energy performance of commercial and institutional buildings. Over the years, Portfolio Manager has grown in popularity and use because it allows the user to understand whole building energy use and costs (including water and other materials), compare theirs to other buildings (using a scoring system), set building baselines and targets, track the impacts of reduction strategies, and produce custom reports.
Through this workshop, participants will learn how to:
Eddy Cloutier graduated in mechanical engineering from the École Polytechnique de Montréal in 2003. Since 2005, he has been working as an engineer for Bouthillette Parizeau and has been involved in a number of major projects and in conducting numerous studies mainly in the capacity of energy efficiency specialist and project manager. Since 2009, he has been working as this firm’s Director of Sustainable Development and Energy Efficiency.
He has been accredited as a Certified Measurement & Verification Professional (CMVP), LEED AP O+M and Accredited Recommissioning Agent (by the BEIE). To ensure the success of the projects undertaken, he gets himself fully involved and takes ownership of the projects together with his team members.
He first got involved in recommissioning in 2006, when he supervised an AQME pilot project financed by the Agence de l’efficacité énergétique, Hydro-Québec and Gaz Métro. Since then, he has been constantly involved in this field by implementing numerous projects, some of which have won awards. Over the past five years, he has also worked as a trainer.
