BOMA Announces New Energy-Saving Solutions Training

First BEEP course set for April 2006

 

Washington, D.C.-based BOMA Intl. is launching a breakthrough training initiative on April 7, 2006, to help the commercial real estate industry counter rising energy costs and reduce energy consumption. The BOMA Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP) has been developed by the BOMA Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® Program and is funded in part by an EPA grant. BEEP provides no- and low-cost strategies for reducing the industry’s energy consumption and its annual $24 million energy bill by as much as 30 percent, with the added benefits of improved property value, better indoor air quality, and tenant comfort.

Gary Wood, chair, BOMA Foundation says,
Energy is the largest controllable operating expense for office buildings. BEEP fills an important gap in the marketplace by offering straightforward and applicable information about strategic energy management. This program is an essential resource that will improve the value of our members’ properties and the quality of their management.”

The BEEP series of six courses is being offered nationwide via phone conference, with support materials delivered over the Internet in real time. The first course, Introduction to Energy Performance, takes place Friday, April 7. Subsequent courses include: Friday, May 12 - How to Benchmark Energy Performance; Friday, June 2 - Energy Efficient Audit Concepts & Economic Benefits; Friday, Sept. 8 - No- and Low-Cost Operational Adjustments to Improve Energy Performance; Friday, Oct. 13 - Valuing Energy Enhancement Projects & Financial Returns; Friday, Nov. 10 - Building an Energy Awareness Program.

Each BEEP seminar is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. EST. Registration fees are $50 per seminar, per site which allows one or more individuals to participate from the same location for one low fee. BEEP courses are also being offered at The BOMA Intl. North American Commercial Real Estate Congress® and The Office Building Show, June 24-27 in Dallas.
