AEA delivers Energy Management System Training for Con Edison Multifamily Customers
The Association for Energy Affordability is conducting a series of classes for managers of properties that have installed Energy Management Systems (EMS) under the Con Edison’s Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program. The classes are being conducted with the support of Con Edison and the manufacturers of the Energy Management Systems, who provide detailed and hands-on presentations regarding their systems using equipment installed at AEA.
Eighty-three persons attended the first three sessions held in May and early June 2015. One training day was devoted to the each of the three top-selling systems in Con Edison’s Multifamily Energy Efficiency Program: Entech Digital Controls, US Energy Group, and Heat-Timer Corporation. Additional sessions will be scheduled as funding permits for multifamily customers who have installed devices made by companies such as OAS, BGS, PEPCO, and Intech21.
Classes are held in the Heating and Cooling Lab of AEA’s NYC Energy Management Training Center in the Bronx, where the Energy Management Systems of all of the above manufacturers are installed (and connected to functional demonstration boilers in the lab) for hands-on use by class participants. While all EMS have certain basic functions in common, the controls, settings, reports, and the screens on each device are set up differently.
