Course Description

BOC 1002: Measuring and Benchmarking Energy Performance follows Energy Efficient Operation of Building HVAC Systems in the BOC Level I program. 

This module covers how energy is used in commercial buildings and how to identify and prioritize conservation opportunities.  The content includes basic principles of energy accounting, evaluation of fuel options, operation and maintenance strategies to improve efficiency, and energy management planning techniques.  Learn how to perform quantifiable evaluations of your facilities' energy use in order to be able to target prospects for energy conservation.  A project, Benchmarking Your Building in Energy Star Portfolio Manager (ESPM), is due at the start of the next course, BOC 1003: Efficient Lighting Fundamentals.

BOC 1002 may be taken as stand-alone course, or as a course for the Level I Building Operator Certification.  To qualify for Building Operator Training Certification of Completion , BOC 1002: Measuring and Benchmarking Energy Performance must be completed with BOC 1001, 1003, 1004, 1005, 1006, and 1009.
