Trane Leader Discusses Fast-Payback, Low-Risk Energy Conservation Measures at 2010 National Facilities Management & Technology Conference

Mar 16, 2010, 08:00 ET from Trane

BALTIMORE, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Businesses around the world continue to confront an environment of unprecedented challenges in energy and operations. Because energy use can account for up to 40 percent of the total operating expenses of a building, energy conservation measures for buildings offer a good place to start when seeking ways to reduce operating cost and make a significant impact on the bottom line quickly.  

At the National Facilities Management & Technology Conference (NFMT 2010), Neil Maldeis, energy engineering manager for Trane, will present a detailed blueprint for energy conservation plans within an organization. In addition to lower utility and operating costs, energy conservation delivers benefits including reduced carbon footprint, increased market value for buildings, increased productivity of occupants and reduced absenteeism in the workplace.

Conference attendees will learn how to establish energy goals; determine energy-saving measures that deliver the best results; evaluate financial options; develop an energy conservation plan from start to finish; apply deep energy conservation measures in their buildings in order to drive business outcomes; finance energy-efficiency improvements in the current economic environment; and measure success.

When: March 18, 2010 at 2:10 p.m. (Conference is March 16-18)

Where: Room 324 in Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD
