The world's largest faculty of engineering”
Energy audits allow citizens and companies to achieve economic benefits by saving costs”
The Postgraduate Certificate in Energy Auditing and Certification addresses the complete range of issues involved in this field, both in the residential and tertiary sectors. Its study has a clear advantage over other programs that focus on specific blocks, which prevents the student from knowing the interrelationship with other areas included in the multidisciplinary field of energy efficiency and sustainability in the construction of buildings.
This program will delve into the distinction between energy diagnosis and energy audit for the provision of a contract through an Energy Service Company (ESCO). The competences of the energy auditors will be defined, as well as their attributes, knowledge and skills, informing the different types of accreditations that exist, and the elaboration of an energy audit for buildings according to the EN 16247-2 Standard will be discussed, working on all the phases established by the same. Additionally, the characteristics of the most common measuring instruments used in the performance of an energy audit will be analyzed.
Within the provision of energy services, we will detail the structure it should have in accordance with EN 15900, breaking down the five types of services such as: energy management, maintenance, total guarantee, improvement and renovation of facilities, and investments and renewable energies, which can be offered individually or in combination.
The student, after passing the assessments of this program, will be able to recognize the type of work to be developed according to the objectives set by the client, perform an energy audit in the building according to EN 16247-2, analyze the provision of energy services and perform the energy certification of the building.
Additionally, as this is a 100% online Postgraduate Certificate, the students are not constrained by fixed timetables or the need to move to another physical location, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their professional or personal life with their academic life.
