The Louisville Energy Alliance, in partnership with Louisville Metro Government’s Office of Sustainability, will host a FREE EPA ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager training session on May 23 from 1-3 p.m.
The training will include a one-hour webinar hosted by an EPA ENERGY STAR professional followed by on-site assistance with creating Portfolio Manager accounts and entering data into the software. Attendees will learn the basic functionality of Portfolio Manager as well as how to log energy and water use data and generate custom reports using the data. By the end of the session, attendees will have entered one year of energy data, have a basic understanding of the capabilities of Portfolio Manager and be one step closer to ENERGY STAR certification. Additionally, senior engineers from the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) will be on-hand to answer any technical assistance questions.
