- We can order this
This new edition of A Guide to Energy Management in Buildings begins by asking why we need to control energy use in buildings and proceeds to discuss how the energy consumption of a building can be assessed or estimated through an energy audit. It then details a range of interventions to reduce energy use and outlines methods of assessing the cost-effectiveness of such measures.
Topics covered include:
where and how energy is used in buildings
measuring and monitoring energy use
techniques for reducing energy use in buildings
And new in this edition:
the cooling of buildings
fuel costs and smart metering
and education and professional recognition.
It provides a template for instigating the energy-management process within an organization, as well as guidance on management issues such as employee motivation, and gives practical details on how to carry the process through. This book should appeal to building and facilities managers and also to students of energy management modules in FE and HE courses.
