The ManagingEnergy energy management system is a working standard, used to produce energy audit reports with a consistent format. The consistent format means that ManagingEnergy energy audit reports can be technically detailed, and at the same can be targeted at a broad range of readers with a bit of guidance. This help system is intended to provide that guidance, so that any user can interpret a report even if they don't have a great deal of experience with energy management or building systems.
ManagingEnergy can be used to create bound paper reports
Electronic pdf reports are easier to navigate and send to others
Reports are delivered either in hardcopy or as electronic files (Adobe *.pdf standard). The electronic file format is normally preferred because it is more portable and has internal links to jump between sections. It can also be printed at any time to produce a hardcopy.
Some aspects of report appearance are adapted for each client, so the sample pages and graphics shown here may not look exactly the same as your reports. However the general layout and technical content will be similar and recognizable.
Whether in hardcopy or electronic format, energy audit reports are only one part of ManagingEnergy , a comprehensive suite of tools for building owners, building managers, and service providers to manage energy use in buildings. More information on the complete system can be found at www.managingenergy.com
The end of this guide contains a glossary of terms used generally in the building industry and more specifically in the ManagingEnergy process.
