Presentation
Summary:

Through his experience as Chair of ASHRAE’s proposed Standard for Commercial Building Energy Audits, Jim Kelsey has had unique exposure to nation-wide perspectives on what energy audits should be for utilities, program administrators, and end-users’ multiple internal stakeholders.  Energy audits have become common practice, but there is wide variation in qualifications and deliverables. The speaker will cover trends that challenge the development of a credible energy assessment industry, guidelines for the often misinterpreted ASHRAE Audit levels, best practices for auditors, and how software is changing the landscape for data collection, analysis and reporting results.
