Laboratory Building Energy Analysis

COURSE NO: M04-011
Laboratory Building Energy Analysis
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes energy efficiency strategies including reducing the air flow during unoccupied periods, variable-air-volume systems; lower static pressure drop in the air distribution system; energy recovery by enthalpy wheels, heat pipes and run-around loops; evaporative cooling; and more accurate accounting for plug loads.


Because laboratories use a high amount of energy, often more than five times as much per square foot as an office building, it is important to find cost-effective ways to reduce their energy use and costs.


This 4 PDH online course is applicable to engineers who design high tech laboratory buildings and wish to use HVAC systems that are energy efficient and utilize heat recovery methods.
