The votes are in and the community's choice is clear. WATER will be the challenge to galvanize the San Diego Incubator for Innovation!
Students will identify water savings measures in their building through detection and repair of leaks, operational changes, and low-cost equipment improvements. The class will start with an examination of water/sewer bills for savings opportunities. Other subjects will include deduct meters, leaks, faucets, showerheads, toilets, urinals, cooling towers, garbage disposals, and landscapes. One day.

This class introduces technologies to help building personnel better manage their energy use, reduce electrical demand, and maintain or even improve the comfort of building occupants. Topics covered include how to screen buildings to assess enhanced automation (EA) potential, lighting and HVAC technologies and control strategies, energy management and information systems, as well as EA implementation strategies. Upon completion, students will understand the complexities of enhanced automation and the role of the building operator in making EA really work in facilities. One day.
Thank you for your interest, this Program is sold out. Check back for additonal programs and join our events waiting list.
