Webinar: You can’t manage what you can’t measure
Best practices in collecting and managing energy data
Thursday, December 6, 2012
Simple and consistent access to energy data is critical for local governments that are leading efforts to lower energy use and cut GHG emissions within their communities. Data driven performance analysis is key to set sound energy management goals, identify cost-effective energy efficiency measures, target investments, and generally improve overall operations.
At the same time local governments are not working alone. Utilities and businesses both have an active interest in energy management and data to offer. Issues of privacy, data quality and performance measurement are important to all stakeholders.
This webinar provides an overview of some considerations, approaches and practices in accessing and using data in the development of GHG inventories. A special emphasis will be given to working with utilities as key partners with available data and complimentary mandates for energy management.
