Energy efficiency & CO2 reduction: how to measure energy savings?
National and regional authorities are expanding programmes and measures regarding change in energy consumption trends, energy efficiency improvement, and CO2 emissions abatement.
This course aims to clarify these objectives and provides participants with key elements to understand and apply the methods used to measure energy efficiency, and CO2 reduction performances.
At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will have:
- A clear understanding of national objectives on energy consumption, renewable energy efficiency and CO2 abatement;
- A knowledge of basic methods used in measuring and benchmarking the progress achieved regarding energy saving and CO2 reduction;
- An ability to apply those methods to evaluate the success of energy efficiency / CO2 abatement programmes.
Who will benefit
This session is intended for managers and staffs of governments and other relevant agencies at the national, regional and local levels that work on sustainable development, energy efficiency, climate change, and renewables. It is also intended for managers of companies in the energy sector impacted by energy efficiency and CO2 reduction initiatives.
The sessions will rely on case studies and interaction among the participants, and it will also include other quality support materials.
