AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


LINDSAY AUDIN, C.E.M., C.E.P., LEED-AP, is the president of Energywiz, Inc., an energy consulting firm. His 35 years of experience in the energy services industry include 8 years as energy manager for Columbia University and 12 years with private engineering and energy consulting firms in New York City, prior to founding Energywiz in 1996. He holds certifications in energy management, procurement, and is a LEED Accredited Professional. Audin has been named Energy Manager of the Year by Energy User News and the Association of Professional Energy Managers, International Energy Manager of the Year by AEE, and is a member of AEE's Energy Manager's Hall of Fame. In 1992, he founded the New York Energy Buyers Forum, a non-profit organization of large energy users. His articles have appeared in trade publications including Architectural Record, Engineered Systems, and Building Operating Management, where he has been a contributing editor since 2002, and he is a requested speaker at many national events.
Presented online in a series of three live two-hour time modules, this seminar will show you how analyze "smart meter" data using Excel® to gain a clearer understanding of your electrical loads. That information may then be utilized to control and minimize peak demand and energy costs.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


Delivered by nationally recognized energy expert Lindsay Audin, this seminar will show you how to use "smart" meters and the data they produce to cut cost, peak demand, and electricity consumption. You'll learn the specifics of how loads vary over time (in minutes as well as months) and how to use that knowledge to lower electric bills and profit from new utility programs and rates. You will gain a clearer understanding of your electrical loads and how to use Excel to analyze and portray them.

For use both during and after the seminar, participants will be given access to Excel-based tools containing templates and macros that convert and chart data into 3D "landscapes," parallel "sliced" load profiles, and load duration curves. These methods were developed by the instructor and are not taught or available elsewhere. They are designed to make interval data analysis faster, more efficient, and easier than other approaches -- including software products which can cost significantly more than the price of this seminar. When applied to interval data, the results pinpoint how much load to cut at the lowest cost and with minimum impact on operations.

You'll be guided through the basics of smart metering equipment and its specification, securing/formatting data, and using it to find opportunities for energy cost-cutting and load leveling. You'll see real-life examples of how load shapes change when cost-cutting measures such as peak shaving, thermal storage, and demand response are applied, and ways to find operating and mechanical problems that, when fixed, could save a bundle. You'll learn ways to translate what is seen into upgrades and improved operations, and to help staff members understand how their actions affect utility bills.

The course also covers demand response (DR) programs and time-of-use (TOU) electric rates: what they are, how they work, qualifying a DR provider, ways to maximize profitability, and technical and contractual pitfalls to avoid.
