AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


MARVIN T. HOWELL is a former senior energy and solar consultant with SkyPower Energy Corporation in Arlington, Texas. As a contracted senior environmental associate with Analytical Services Inc. for eight years, Mr. Howell implemented environmental management systems at eight U.S. DEA facilities, including labs, division offices, an intelligence center and an air operations center. In this capacity, he was instrumental in planning and designing several energy management initiatives that resulted in significant energy cost saving improvements throughout the DEA facilities. Previously Mr. Howell was manager of distribution planning and reliability for Florida Power and Light, and also served as a Lt. Colonel in Air Force civil engineering, where he was involved in energy reduction efforts, reliability centered maintenance, project management, construction and maintenance management, efficiency and productivity improvements. He holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Mississippi State University and a masters in industrial engineering from the University of Pittsburgh. In 2014 he authored the book, Effective Implementation of ISO 50001 Energy Management System, published by ASQ Quality Press.
Presented online in a series of two live 2 hour time modules, this seminar is designed to guide those who wish to identify and implement practical, viable energy conservation measures which will actually achieve the desired results.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


Energy conservation may most simply be defined as a low or no-cost program which reduces energy consumption by means of a cooperative effort in which everyone learns a few energy-saving practices, and then alters their behavior slightly to reduce energy waste. Train-Commit-Practice-Achieve are the energy conservation steps which lay out the process leading to successfully achieving an energy consumption reduction result.

This training program is intended to guide you through the steps of effectively putting your energy conservation measures in place, including:

  • A walk through of a facility, identifying what items can be included in your organization's energy conservation program.
  • Defining what items and actions should be included as energy conservation measures.
  • Learning how to estimate the potential energy reduction achieveable from these specific actions.
  • Developing a useful energy awareness and conservation training process which clarifies the behavioral changes needed and the specific conservation goals to be accomplished.
  • Understanding how to create an energy conservation organizational culture.
  • Learning what steps are the most helpful in sustaining the ongoing energy conservation efforts.
  • Using the most meaningful methods to track your program's progress and measure its results.

The instructor will clearly show you proven and practical tools which you can readily use to develop an energy conservation program that works for your organization. You'll also learn the best approach to "institutionalize" the desired individual energy conservation behaviors, as well as the basics of incorporating water conservation into your program.
