AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The Association of Energy Engineers is now an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program. 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.

Virtually all facilities have potential energy savings, and energy engineers can prove it. But do the directors of finance, operations, procurement, maintenance, and other departments understand what the solutions entail? After the technology is settled, the budget and spending debates begin. For many organizations, energy performance depends more on money issues than on technical feasibility. Energy managers should be prepared to demonstrate the "money" impacts of energy improvements if they want to win greater organizational support for their initiatives.

The key to implementing energy improvements is to demonstrate to other department managers "what's in it for them" should they support these efforts. This is done by showing how the net benefits of energy improvements will filter down to a facility's bottom line. Doing this will help to overcome departmental resistance to spending a dime that in reality will result in the entire organization's saving a dollar. The successful energy manager's agenda becomes a hub from which win-win solutions are distributed across departments. Instead of competing internally, departments then work collectively to improve their organization's external competitiveness.

The two-hour program will provide insight on:

  • Translating the costs and benefits of energy improvements into terms that resonate with front-office managers.
  • Budget and management metrics that link energy performance to fiscal performance.
  • Demonstrating the linkage between energy cost control and shareholder value.
  • Putting energy efficiency/procurement strategies on an equal footing with energy procurement strategies.
