Online modules offer scenarios for saving energy, lowering costs and increasing occupant comfort in buildings
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 9, 2017 – Yardi® has helped fund a high-performance sustainability training program offered by educational organization BOMI International®. Five new scenario-based online modules funded by the grant will help train facilities managers, tenants and maintenance workers how to collaborate in making buildings’ heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems operate more efficiently.
The training program, titled “High-Performance Sustainable Buildings: HVAC Optimization,” uses animated, real-life scenarios highlighting comfort, business and sustainability factors. Concepts include assessment best practices, demand response strategies, the role of analytics tools and procedures for engaging third-party support.
“Yardi challenged BOMI International with designing a program that sets the standard for online, interactive training related to HVAC operations,” said Jeffrey Horn, president and CEO of BOMI International. “I strongly believe we’ve accomplished that mission and thank Yardi for the opportunity to stretch our capabilities.”
“We are excited to support BOMI International’s efforts to merge technology advances and energy insight into new best practices that benefit the industry,” said Matt Eggers, vice president of Yardi Energy. “The new learning program gives stakeholders in commercial property management new tools for increasing energy efficiency.”
