This is a unit about energy management and in particular, how to minimise energy use, without reducing services, by using energy more efficiently and by reducing waste. An energy audit plays a large role in informing the energy management process. The unit delivers knowledge surrounding the process of implementing energy management programs in commercial and industrial companies. The unit begins with a general description of energy management programs and the framework and standards for implanting such programs before introducing some of the tools and techniques of energy management, including energy auditing and energy data analysis. The unit then discusses the options for energy management for commercial and industrial premises in a range of areas.
