This workshop will teach you how to access utility data in order to comply with Seattle city ordinance – and leverage that data to make cost-saving energy improvements. Join IREM Chapter 27 to examine the tools and resources necessary to comply with this ordinance and initiate a value-enhancing energy management program for your portfolio.

The Smart Buildings Center and The City of Seattle are offering a free workshop for participants that have previously benchmarked their commercial and multi-family properties.

Participants will also learn tips to make their energy score as accurate as possible, learn how to use the data to track their energy performance overtime, and will be introduced to the “beyond benchmarking” with a viewing of tools, resources, and utility incentive programs that can help them achieve energy savings.

Does your building have a cooling tower? If you do, you need to attend the March 21st Workshop on “What’s new with cooling tower operations and maintenance,” presented by Seattle Public Utilities Water Conservation Program. SPU has been providing incentives and education to the local community for many years. After the Cooling Tower Incentive Program Pilot, and a few years of experience and data, combined with new products, the team and customers have lots of information to share.
Join Seattle-area chemical treatment providers, equipment vendors, property and facility managers, building engineers, and other cooling tower professionals as well as customers who may potentially be interested in participating in cooling tower-related incentives.
Attendees will learn about new innovations, incentivized equipment upgrades and new technologies to improve systems and save money. There will be lots of shared experiences from customers large and small who are using best practices in Cooling Tower Maintenance. There will be a tour of the Pacific Tower cooling tower. Also, in partnership with the Smart Buildings Center and NEEC, this workshop will count toward 1.5 continuing education hours for BOC Credential Maintenance.
