Upcoming Webinar on Public Sector Energy Data Collection and Tracking

Implementing a robust and comprehensive energy tracking and measurement process can be a challenge. A webinar on December 18th at 1pm CST will cover DOE’s Weatherization and Intergovernmental Program Office’s step-by-step guide with best practices for state and local governments and school districts. The presentation will also demonstrate the value of an energy data tracking effort.

Specifically, the guide addresses the following topics:

  1. Creating a comprehensive energy asset inventory
  2. Streamlining access to utility data
  3. Leveraging data management tools
  4. Optimizing the organizational structure for portfolio-wide energy data tracking
  5. Driving engagement and communicating results

This presentation will include an overview of the upcoming document, “Best Practices in Energy Data Collection and Tracking in the Public Sector.” The webinar will feature the US Department of Energy’s Mona Khalil (who was featured during the MEEA Benchmarking and Codes Conference) and the guide that she developed on this topic, as well as Jeff Hamman, the Energy Specialist with Portland Public Schools in Oregon. Jeff will showcase the school district’s efforts of energy data management (collection and use). The webinar is being presented through DOE’s Technical Assistance Program (TAP), and is available to anyone interested in learning about data collection, use of the information, and how to manage it in ongoing operations.
