The Association of South Carolina Energy Managers (ASCEM), in partnership with the Energy Office, will hold its fall Accredited Commercial Energy Manager (ACEM) course October 16-19. We are pleased to announce that Jim Herritage has agreed to come back and teach one more ACEM course. The ACEM training is designed for energy/facilities managers or assistants at state or local government facilities. Attendees should have a proficiency in high school general math and Algebra I, must be willing to study roughly three hours each night, and will be asked to complete basic homework assignments.

This 3½-day workshop provides energy managers with a thorough overview of the many factors that affect commercial energy consumption as well as a foundation for identifying energy-saving investment opportunities. The overall objective of this training is to prepare attendees to perform commercial energy audits and provide energy management services to South Carolina’s commercial sector and State of South Carolina governmental facilities.

Areas of concentration include the commercial thermal envelope, electrical systems, lighting, and HVAC fundamentals as well as energy auditing procedures. Also covered are energy-savings calculation methods and simple payback, simple rate of return, and net present value calculation procedures.  

Registration details will be available soon. For more information please contact Stacey Washington at swashington@regstaff.sc.gov or 803-737-0804.
