This 16-part training series is designed to provide facilities around the world with the necessary skills to improve energy efficiency and profitability.
The first two courses, Energy Smart and Energy Management Best Practices, help facilities implement their energy optimization program in three key phases:
- Building the business case and initiating the program.
- Promoting employee awareness of energy efficiency for all employees.
- Launching an effective energy optimization program with committed leadership and engaged employees to identify low cost, "quick win" improvement opportunities.
Additional courses deliver proven best practices for targeting and optimizing the most energy-intensive equipment and systems to help realize significant energy cost savings.
These are many of the same best practices that have been instrumental to the success of the DSS Bold Energy Plan. In 2008, the first full year under the Plan, DSS plants reduced energy costs by 5% compared to prior year operations and achieved a 4% improvement in energy productivity.
