This information is stated orally and in the training course handbook.

Commercial buildings are responsible for roughly 40% of total U.S. energy consumption per year, as well as almost 40% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, and the multifamily and small and medium building (SMB) sectors represent a significant portion of these commercial building GHG emissions. These market sectors also represent a historically underserved group with enormous untapped potential for savings – but require a more efficient approach to analysis and auditing than those applied to larger buildings – while still maintaining an overall comprehensive approach from analysis to reporting to financing and implementation.

This course will:

  • Discuss the challenges unique to working with multifamily and SMB properties.
  • Demonstrate cost-effective and efficient approaches to analysis, cost estimation, financial projections, increased property value calculation, GHG emission reduction, and financing options through the use of the Energy Performance Improvement Calculation (EPICTM) tool.
  • Present a process for owner engagement, analysis, reporting, communication and determining steps to implementation.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:

  • Describe the unique challenges and level of support required when working with multifamily and SMB properties.
  • Summarize how to develop energy and cost savings estimates, implementation costs, and present financial projections for an energy efficiency project – in minutes and hours instead of days and weeks.
  • Incorporate solar PV system analysis that considers reduction in building energy use resulting from more efficient energy-using systems in the improved building.
  • Present financial projections for financing options such as bank loans and C-PACE financing.
  • Outline how to present these results and communicate with building owners and stakeholders – speaking their language (dollar signs instead of energy units).

*Attendees must earn an 70% or higher on the final course test in order to earn 0.2 CEUs.
