With regards to the ASHRAE definition of auditing, Jordan’s ESPs typically performed Level 2 audits and may include parts of a Level 3 audit without qualifying these parts as Level 3. The main reasons for such a situation were concerned with the lack of (1) ESPs’ capability for creating calibrated computer-based building simulations, (2) standard criteria for developing an M&V system compatible with the Level 3 audit and (3) detailed impact analysis of more complex measures.
Econoler was thus contracted to develop, coordinate and deliver a specific 3-day training session on investment-grade audits (IGAs). More specifically, this training session covered the following topics:
- Energy Efficiency Project (EEP) Opportunities, Challenges and Solutions in Jordan
- EE Technologies and Comprehensive Project Examples
- ESCO Business Model
- EEP Savings Measurement and Verification
- Project and IGA Development Approach
- EEP Finance Schemes
- EEP Risks and Mitigation Strategies
- IGA Major Elements
- Converting Energy Savings Opportunities to Implemented Measures
- Savings Estimating Techniques and Risk-mitigating Strategies
- Baseline Calculations and Future Adjustments
- Savings Calculations and M&V for Bundled EE/RE Technologies
- Use of Field Measurement Equipment
- Interdependencies among Combined Technologies
This interactive training session included many case studies and examples, as well as hands-on learning of the RETScreen software.
