This eTraining core course discusses how to use metered data to identify system-level or facility-wide efficiency changes and dashboards to present information tailored to stakeholders. Course materials instruct on how to apply metered data analysis to improve operational efficiency, interpret building load profiles, and use metered data to analyze utility bills.

 By completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Follow the five-step process for applying metered data to improve energy and water efficiency
  • Use basic metered data analysis to identify operational efficiency opportunities
  • Understand fundamental concepts related to building load profiles
  • Apply metered data to identify water conservation opportunities and analyze utility bills.

The course is part of the three-course Advanced Metering Sytems certificate series, which provides guidance on how to turn information from metered data into operational, cost-saving best practices.

First Thursday Update presents a new option for agencies to purchase renewable energy through their utility: green tariffs. Green tariffs allow large utility customers in traditionally regulated states to procure renewable power from their utility through a special tariff for energy from a specific renewable energy project—typically through a long-term contract. Instructors will explain how green tariffs are structured and what agencies need to consider when examining this purchasing option. This update will also discuss emerging tariffs and how agencies can work with their utility to create new green-tariff options.

Learn to:

  • Define and assess utility green tariffs
  • Identify where utility green tariffs are currently available, and which programs to watch
  • Purchase renewable energy using utility green tariffs
  • Keep current with green tariff options.
