Energy efficiency

For individuals

The most economical and climate-friendly kilowatt hour is the kilowatt hour that we do not consume.
Over 30% of the global final energy consumption can be accounted to buildings. Thus, the possibilities to reduce the energy consumption in buildings are enormous.

RENAC’s courses provide you with architectural design principles and an insight into modern technologies for ecological buildings which are also displayed in RENAC’s Training center. In the building sector the political framework is of particular importance. Hence, the assessment of the energy performance of buildings as well as policy design techniques for promoting energy efficiency are dealt with in RENAC’s courses.

In industrial sectors energy efficiency is of increasing importance due to regulations while an enhanced energy efficiency can also be a completive advantage especially in energy intensive sectors.  
RENAC’s courses enable you to classify the technical and economic saving potential of energy efficiency measures with regard to cross-sectional technologies. Furthermore, energy management systems are dealt with in RENAC’s courses. They offer a systematic approach to enhance energy efficiency in an organization.
