Applied Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

A world class course for improving business energy efficiency

Build the business case to drive energy efficiency initiatives across your organisation.

Introduction

The Bureau of Energy Efficiency India suggests that energy production for India needs to double by 2030 if economic and social development targets are to be met. Energy intensity reduction has a projected forecast in the order of 25% over these coming years. Implementing energy efficiency measures in your workplace is essential in avoiding the mounting cost pressures that rising energy prices will bring, provide the first steps top energy security and aid your business or organisation meet these government targets and ISO 50001 accreditation.
This course will help you identify demand and supply efficiency opportunities in your workplace, evaluate the business benefits and develop solutions to improve the way your organisation uses energy. During the course you will also be taken through several case studies to see how solutions have been applied in commercial and community settings.

Who should attend?

This course is especially suitable if you:

  • Have a role or business enterprise designed to support India’s Energy Conservation Act (2001 and 2010 amendment) and associated programs of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency
  • Are involved in energy auditing or thinking of becoming an energy auditor
  • Are involved in energy management or thinking of becoming an energy manager
  • Have a role or business enterprise designed to support work in the green building sector
“I have attended many workshops and seminars both in the private and public sectors. Never have I felt so involved in a workshop and immersed in the discussions like I had during the 2-day Energy Efficiency Workshop presented by CTI. I recommend whole heartedly all to attend the workshop.”Robert Teo, Senior Manager.

This course will enable you to:

  • Understand the sources and types of energy used within the workplace, community facility and home
  • Identify energy demand and supply efficiency opportunities
  • Understand energy benchmarks as set by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency India
  • Evaluate the business and community benefits associated with different energy efficiency projects
  • Develop solutions to improve energy efficiency productivity
  • Evaluate the business and community benefits associated with different energy efficiency projects
  • Develop solutions to improve energy efficiency productivity
  • Calculate running costs and project costs for energy efficiency opportunities to establish a cost/benefit analysis
  • Use models for financial assessment and business case development (e.g. Payback, IRR, NPV)
  • Understand and interpret energy efficiency product guidelines
  • Employ workplace strategies to performance-manage business outcomes
  • Implement energy efficiency opportunities
  • Prepare reports and effectively communicate energy efficiency
  • How to overcome the barriers to energy efficiency adaptation

Part 1 – Demand efficiencies and barriers

  • Global and Indian energy consumption in context
  • Policy and regulatory response (Energy Conservation Act 2001 and 2010 amendment)
  • Energy efficiency and carbon reduction link
  • Demand efficiency – behavioural changes
  • Behavioural change case studies
  • Barriers to energy efficiency
  • Demand efficiency – infrastructure changes
  • Infrastructure change case studies
  • Power factor correction
  • Lighting – including Bachat Lamp Yojana project
  • Green procurement

Part 2 – Supply efficiencies and business case

  • What is supply efficiency
  • Forms of renewable energy

What to expect

You can complete the course in face-to-face classroom mode with in class web interface support. The face-to-face program runs 2.5 hours per week for 8 weeks.
Prior to the course you will receive some pre-reading material to aid in the discussion for your first day. Also on the first day, you will receive a Learner Guide (course manual) and assessment workbooks.
During the course you will work in groups to complete workbook exercises and engage in discussions on energy efficiency
opportunities. The completion of these workbooks will form part of your final assessment should you choose to gain a Statement of
Attainment by completing follow up assessment.
You will be taken through 7 case studies (4 demand and 3 supply efficiency initiatives) to contextualise the course content and
assess relevance and applicability of different projects.
In preparation for the course you will need to gather real energy consumption data from your workplace, community facility or home
to use in the class exercises and tasks, therefore maximizing the course outcomes. Guidelines for the collection of energy data are
supplied in the pre-course reading.
Following the course, you will be given time to prepare a draft business case for a workplace energy efficiency opportunity you have identified.
On completion of the classroom based components of the course you will receive a Certificate of Completion.
