Registration Open for Boiler Efficiency Institute’s Boiler Course

The Boiler Efficiency Institute (BEI)’s Boiler Course will be held May 14-15, 2019 in Columbia. Details and registration are available on the Energy Office Calendar.

The goal of the workshop is to train a range of South Carolina professionals such as boiler operators, technicians, licensed engineers, and registered architects in energy efficiency and cost-saving measures in a steam plant and HVAC equipment/operations, and how to implement the necessary changes to realize these savings. The measures to be explored include low upfront cost measures, operations and management procedures, fast payback heat recovery, cogeneration projects, and equipment modification projects. Additional objectives include showing participants the latest measurement instrumentation technique for measuring and improving HVAC efficiency, safety equipment/testing, cleaning, storage, etc., and updating participants on the status of existing and new refrigerants, including handling, recovery, and the purchase and retrofit of equipment.

The Office of Regulatory Staff – Energy Office has contracted with BEI to provide this training at a reduced rate of $25 (regular fee of $795) to residents and employees in South Carolina.

Each attendee will receive a minimum of 12 hours of training over two consecutive days in Columbia. Certificates for Professional Development Hours will be presented to all participants upon successful completion of the workshop. Lunch will not be provided.
