Exam for Continuing Education Units
March 17, 2011


Continuing Education Units: 1.5 AIA-certified Learning Units (LUs)

The drive for high-performance buildings is based on economics, not green ideology. Owners want documentation that investments will have a high return on investment or fast payback or both, and they want assurance energy fixes and upgrades will perform as expected and for the long-term.

Here's the lineup:

  • Sure-fire energy savings from common, low-cost HVAC and BAS fixes, upgrades, and specification procedures, presented by Mark Hydeman
  • How to make energy savings last: Using benchmarking, measurement & verification, and operator training, investments can achieve anticipated savings for the life of the system, presented by H. Jay Enck
  • Energy Economics: How to reduce first costs and increase return-on-investment using EPACT tax credits and utility rebates, presented by Cynthia Lucas
