This training series focuses on federal facility auditing requirements, types of remote audits, how to use the Facility Energy Decision System (FEDS) building analysis tool, and how to perform remote audits and analyze the building data with FEDS. The primary drivers of this training are to provide information on the comprehensive energy and water evaluation (CEWE) requirements updated in the Energy Act of 2020, a tutorial on performing remote facility audits to satisfy the CEWE requirements, and the current resources and analysis tools that FEMP has developed to support agencies with completing CEWEs at federal facilities.
