Energy Accounting

Provides students with valuable skills to evaluate energy use patterns in commercial buildings. Students learn appropriate economic analysis methods, information/data requirements; how to successfully identify energy investment alternatives, obtain desired results and present recommendations. Students will learn and practice skills required to perform energy analysis using computerized energy modeling and cost analysis with an understanding of utility rates, fees, tariffs, rebates and incentives. The emphasis will be on analysis of energy investments using spreadsheets to consider total cost-benefits over the life of the investment. Students will learn to use the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Portfolio Manager online software platform to energy-benchmark buildings.
