Course Outline:

This three-hour, introductory course aims to deliver basic energy terminology and concepts in Plain English. It will provide context to the energy challenges and opportunities facing Ireland, corresponding obligations and introduce commonly used terms, units of measure and technologies.

The intent is to provide attendees with knowledge to understand their energy consumption and confidence to contribute to improving it.

With increasing focus worldwide on saving energy and becoming more sustainable, organisations are being asked to deliver challenging energy reduction targets to save money, meet legal requirements and protect the environment. However, in many cases, individuals who are asked to join Energy Teams or assist the organisation in completing its reporting requirements may not be overly familiar with energy management terminology.
