The Certified Facility Energy Analyst

The Facility Energy Analyst, or FEA, is an exclusive AFE platform; that uses a Department of Energy program for Energy Charting and Metrics or ECAM+ as the main component for the Certified Facility Energy Analyst lab program. All facilities conduct energy audits within their respective buildings. However, what’s next? How do we monitor and maintain the corrections we have made from the audits we have conducted? How do we even know what to correct? Facility professionals need a way to conduct a check-up of their building(s), whether monthly, quarterly, annually or anytime.
