<Workshop Registration Form>  <About the Presenter



The current main concern of people, world-wide, is the rapid depletion of the finite reserves of fossil fuels, such as crude oil and natural gas and the adverse environmental consequences of their combustion. Several energy forms, e.x.. electricity, diesel fuel, ect.. being consumed in this world. Currently, all developing and developed countries are supporting high efficiency measures aiming to increase energy efficiency and reduce various emissions, i.e. gaseous and liquid, to the environment. However, most of the technicians working in the different factories as well as people in different society's sectors are not considering or appreciating the use of energy efficient measures and practices. Thus, it is wise to address and teach these people about ways of using energy efficiently. It is deemed that upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to identify the areas of potential energy savings, recommend the most feasible solutions, and evaluate the economical and environmental impacts of energy efficiency measures.  The primary objective of this workshop is to teach the participants how to identify and evaluate opportunities for energy conservation in any energy systems. The following four factors are considered when discussing energy conservation:

This course covers: energy analysis; energy economic analysis; energy services and demand; energy markets; measuring energy efficiency and energy intensity; energy efficiency optimization; policies for efficient energy use and renewable energy; and environmental impacts.



Upon successful completion of this course the participants shall be able to:


Who Should Attend

The course is intended for all engineers, administrators, and technicians whose work in any type of industry, whether : mechanical, electrical or chemical .  All those working in energy policy and analysis fields will find the course both useful and interesting.
