HOW IT WORKS

Urban Green Council will work with you to create a customized Training Plan that includes a range of outcomes such as:

  1. Improved understanding of key processes through enhanced onboarding of new employees;

  2. A shared knowledge of the relationship between building operations and energy use, and how that affects each employee;

  3. A deeper understanding of advanced building management systems (BMS) and lighting controls capabilities that can improve building performance;

  4. Creating a cohesive energy-focused team that will push for operational improvements and create a culture of energy efficiency.

To reach these outcomes, Urban Green uses a variety of techniques that meet your needs, from classroom training to coaching to an onsite learning lab.


*Organizations based in New York State who are electricity customers of a participating utility company and paying into the System Benefits Charge (SBC) are eligible for NYSERDA funding. However, Urban Green can still create customized program for any firm that wants to make effective and measurable building operations improvements.
