Clean Buildings – Getting to Efficiency
A four-part webinar series
WSU Energy Program no-cost webinars for Resource Conservation Managers, Energy Managers, and Sustainability Managers at public facilities in Washington State (others welcome to attend as space allows)
Operations & maintenance (O&M) and energy management plans (EMP) required for the Washington State Clean Buildings Performance Standard (CBPS) are the focus of this four-part webinar series hosted by the Washington State University Energy Program and presented by Neil Bavins, BOC instructor. While much attention is given to the pathways of compliance for CBPS, this series explores the CBSP requirements of developing EMP and O&M plans, as well as beginning to reduce building energy use.
Each webinar has up to an hour of presentations and a half hour for Q&A. Please register for each separately.
|Efficiency through the Clean Buildings Performance Standard
March 30, 12:00-1:30 Pacific
Gain an understanding of how to use the CBPS and ASHRAE 100 Standard, on which the CBPS is based. Components of the CBPS, including various roles will be discussed. Building Tune Ups as a beginning strategy will be introduced, and explored more fully in the next webinar.
|Tune Ups for Clean Buildings
April 21, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm Pacific
Building Tune Ups are a great strategy to prepare for compliance with the energy management plan and O&M plan sections of the CBPS, and at the same time start reducing energy use. Attendees will walk through a Tune Up process, and detailed attention will be given to finding efficiency measures in building systems.
|Energy Management Plans for Clean Buildings
May 19, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm Pacific
A requirement for compliance with the CBPS is to develop and maintain an Energy Management Plan (EMP). The components of an EMP, and how to develop such an EMP, will be examined, including training, capital management plans, and schedules.
|O&M for Clean Buildings
June 9, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm Pacific
Learn about what must be included in the O&M plan, as required by the CBPS. Elements such as inventory, performance objectives, and O&M tasks will be explored, as well as a more detailed look into O&M measures for HVAC.
