This RETScreen workshop is geared towards all staff interested in learning how to monitor energy performance of a building and verify savings from conservation projects using RETScreen Expert. It is applicable to anyone working in or with public sector organizations in Ontario.

Attendees will be provided an introduction to RETScreen Expert followed by a strong focus on the performance analysis techniques of regression, CUSUM and other key features.
