CELC Webinar: 

Maximizing Efficiency Through Building Operation

Speaker: Bob Lane, E3 Entegral Solutions

You've invested in a state-of-the-art building, with automated controls, submeters, and high efficiency equipment. It even has a fancy green building certification. So why is it not meeting your performance expectations?

Effective operation of buildings can make or break efficiency savings. In this month's we will learn how building operation and maintenance can lead to low or no cost energy savings, and how proper training and ensure buildings operate as intended.

As the State of Texas emerges from COVID-19 shutdowns, facility managers should consider prudent technical measures in an effort to mitigate further COVID spread. The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) along with many other organizations are hard at work to find solutions. ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force has developed guidance on mitigating potential health risks during and after reopening.

Please join us in a webinar to discuss the following:
• Overview of these COVID-19 readiness measures
• Applying ASHRAE’s technical recommendations
• Occupancy and scheduling implications
• Technical and financial resources

*This webinar is co-hosted by the State Energy Conservation Office, North Central Texas Council of Governments, and the City Efficiency Leadership Council.

Oklahoma CPACE Workshop

Develop the Oklahoma Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Program

Commercial property assessed clean energy, or “C-PACE” financing is a form of long-term, non-recourse debt that facilitates private financing for energy- and resiliency-related upgrades to non-residential properties. C-PACE financing drives private sector investment in local communities, creates energy efficiencies and energy jobs, helps local governments meet efficiency and clean energy standards, and lowers the cost of energy in Oklahoma. On May 20th, the governor of Oklahoma approved Senate Bill 1592, which allows counties across Oklahoma to establish a C-PACE financing program.

Wednesday, June 24th, 1:00 PM CST
