USGBC Central Plains Chapter and the Kansas City Energy Project invite you to a one-hour workshop on building Energy Audits. This workshop will provide attendees with the critical elements needed to assess your building’s performance. It will answer the question, “What do I do now that I have benchmarked my building?” This is a workshop you will not want to miss. Led by expert Dustin Schafer, Vice President in charge of Technical Standards for Henderson Engineers, he will explain the industry standard definitions of commercial grade energy audits, and focus specifically on describing the different offerings available at each level of service. You should leave this presentation equipped with an understanding of the auditing process, and more importantly, equipped with the knowledge that you need to evaluate proposals from service providers.
