EPA’s new ENERGY STAR College Course
October 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDTFree
ENERGY STAR now offers an updated curriculum on commercial building efficiency. The three-unit, college-level curriculum is more focused and interactive, and can be integrated as a module into existing courses or used as-is to create a standalone short course. The curriculum explores why efficiency matters, the barriers to it, strategies for overcoming those barriers, and practical, skills-based learning on assessing a building’s efficiency performance using ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. Join this webinar for an overview of the materials available, to learn about how instructors have used previous iterations of the materials, and to ask questions. Students who complete the module or short course will be better positioned to engage with the growing number of benchmarking requirements and voluntary programs across the country.
