This course will provide professionals with the necessary skills to perform an energy audit and carbon accounting on commercial, institutional, and industrial facilities, operations, and projects. The course introduces energy and carbon accounting procedures and protocols along with operational cost and performance analysis. It also introduces an overview of energy planning and development of strategies and policies to improve energy performances and reduce GHG emissions.
- Introduce the concepts and procedures of energy accounting.
- Introduce methods to analyse the sources of energy and their performance in a facility, an operation or a project.
- Introduce the procedures and protocols for monitoring and reporting energy consumption, energy demands, and costs.
- Provide the professionals with necessary skills and tools to conduct an energy audit.
- Introduce methodologies for energy planning and strategies to improve energy performances.
- Introduce the concepts of GHG accounting and reporting at the facility, operation, and project levels.
- Describe the science of carbon cycle and climate change and the role of accounting and reporting in climate change mitigation.
- Provide an introduction to the concepts and development of organizational GHG inventories.
- Introduce the concepts and principles of GHG projects, carbon-neutral, and offset generation.
- Provide an overview of corporate GHG planning and strategy development.
- Provide an overview of government and organizational policies to reduce GHG emission.
Faculty Member, British Columbia Institute of Technology
Mory Ghomshei is a Faculty Member at BCIT (teaching Courses in Mining and Energy Resources and Systems). As an adjunct professor at the Mining Departments of UBC (since 1999), Mory has been teaching courses in energy resources and systems. Also as the manager of the CERM3 (Centre for Environmental Research in Minerals, Metals and Martials), Mory established laboratories and programs at UBC for conducting applied research on sustainable energy systems and energy and carbon saving in mining (e.g., in comminution, haulage, and ventilation). Mory is also an adjunct professor at McGill University, Dept. of Mining, contributing to research on sustainable energy. He is presently a principal investigator in a number of Canadian and international sustainable energy projects (e.g., extraction of heat from abandoned and operating mines, co-production of geothermal energy and natural gas in Northern BC , and optimization of mine energy systems).
Mory works as an international energy consultant (e.g., developed for World Bank, environmental guidelines for geothermal power). Mory is expert in carbon accounting and ISO-50001 (helped several energy-intensive industries in BC, acquire ISO certification).
Mory has authored or co-authored over 150 publications and 250 technical reports in the fields of sustainable energy resources and technologies and mineral and material science.
