Fundamentals of energy audit and energy management in buildings and constructions

Training Session  Fundamentals of energy audit and energy management in buildings and constructions: practical training sessions for building administrators, administrative office premises and shopping malls, engineers responsible for provision of essential services for the buildings, chairpersons of the housing cooperatives and associations, real estate agent, and individuals responsible utilization of buildings and constructions in public and municipal sectors, energy managers and for everyone interested in increasing the energy efficiency of their objects and cost saving in payment for energy resources.

Program targets:

1. To create fundamentals knowledge of:

  • energy efficiency, energy saving during manufacturing process and consumption;
  • interrelation of energy efficiency and environmental safety tasks;
  • conducting energy audit of buildings and constructions, formation of basis for understanding the energy audit process and practical skills for implementing it as a whole.

2. Development of the competences of the customer's employees sufficient to prepare energy saving measures and contributing to adopting qualified decisions on all levels of using the energy, who can lead the energy efficiency working groups in the customer's organization subdivisions.

3. Development by the customer's employees who have been trained (individually or in groups) of the Program for improvement energy efficiency of the buildings and constructions thanks to the theoretical knowledge and practical skills gained.

4. Fundamentals of energy saving culture with a special focus on efficient, sustainable household energy consumption at a production site.

Training cession may be conducted at DTEK Academy in Kiev (75 Zhilyanskaya St.) or on the customer's site.

Coach and speaker: Sergei Svistyuk, DTEK ESKO Project Manager, Certified Energy Auditor
