Description: This course is aimed at individuals who want to understand the fundamentals of electrical energy and energy efficiency. Concepts such as electricity and work, in a Newtonian sense, are covered in secondary education, but the application of these concepts to energy efficiency is ambiguous. The content of this course applies the scientific concepts of electricity and energy to conventional processes and businesses, and allows the participant to relate and understand the electrical properties of various systems. At the completion of this course, the participant will have a firm grounding of the principles and drivers influencing energy consumption. This will allow him/her to observe energy systems in a contextual and comparative light; to evaluate elemental energy systems and identify possible energy saving opportunities; and to continue with further energy management training.
