Aim This unit enables learners to understand how energy utilisation in buildings impacts on the environment, and develop the skills needed to audit energy requirements and improve the energy efficiency of buildings. Unit abstract The purpose of this unit is to provide learners with an understanding of the environmental impact of energy utilisation in buildings and the implications of energy efficiency and sustainability. Learners will investigate how environmental and economic gains can be achieved by reducing waste and maximising energy efficiency. As concern over global environmental issues increases, the role of the building services engineer in the design and operation of buildings becomes even more important. This unit is recommended for learners seeking to explore the opportunities that exist for improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
