Guide to Energy Management in Buildings (Hardcover) (Douglas J. Harris)
about this item
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
- energy audits
- measuring and monitoring energy use
- techniques for reducing energy use in buildings
- legislative issues
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 it through. This book should appeal to building managers and facilities managers and also to students of energy management modules in FE and HE courses.
