Industrial Energy Audit Training for Engineers
MetadataShow full item record
The field of engineering energy conservation has witnessed an explosion of concern and activity during the last three years throughout the United States. In Texas, such activities have been enhanced by comprehensive industrial energy auditor training programs that were conceived and initiated under the guidance of the Texas Industrial Commission. One such program, begun with Texas A&M and expanded throughout the state, has continued to provide a high level of engineering and scientific training in the field of energy conservation to practicing personnel in the field. Attendees in the past have included consultants, engineers in industry, plant managers, utility engineering service representatives, and government representatives concerned with energy conservation. Numerous energy programs are conducted throughout Texas and the United States by a variety of organizations. This paper presents the activities and feedback obtained from a 45-hour industrial auditor training program that follows the guidelines originally developed by a statewide advisory board under the auspices of the Texas Industrial Commission. This 5-day intensive engineering level training program has been conducted regularly since its beginning in 1978. The program has been conducted by the Texas Society of Energy Auditors for a number of years and has resulted in positive feedback from the attendees.
