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.


KEVIN VIDMAR currently serves as Vice President of Energy Services for Loureiro Engineering Associates, a full service environmental, remediation, health, safety, energy, building systems, design, installation, and construction firm with offices in Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Mr. Vidmar has more than 25 years of industrial experience, and has worked with over 200 manufacturing sites worldwide for the purpose of optimizing their energy reduction opportunities, including the use of Behavioral Energy Change, energy reduction through Six Sigma and Kaizen programs, as well as the more typical conservation and efficiency improvement strategies. Mr. Vidmar holds a B.S. from Miami University, and an M.S. from Vanderbilt University in Environmental and Water Resource Engineering. He is a Certified Energy Manager, a Certified Energy Auditor, and a Certified Carbon Reduction Manager.

This course is designed specially for those who can benefit from learning effective and proven methods for tracking energy use and assessing progress of energy management measures, for the purpose of achieving maximum energy cost savings. Individuals who can benefit significantly from this program include:

  • Energy engineers, managers and consultants
  • Energy auditors
  • Plant and facility engineers
  • Facility energy managers
  • Corporate, educational, institutional and government energy managers
  • ESCO professionals
  • Utility professionals
  • Performance contracting professionals
  • Organizations evaluating energy management progress/success
  • Utility managers
Presented online in a series of two live 2-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide you with an understanding of the principles behind energy metric (measurement) systems, and also how to correctly and easily prepare and use many different metrics for tracking energy use and energy reduction progress.

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.


Managing and reducing energy use and its resulting carbon footprint is a goal that virtually all organizations are well advised to pursue. No matter what such a program's context or scope, it is critical that any energy management program incorporate useful energy metric (measurement) systems. Energy metrics are needed before, during, and after any system or site changes, in order to be able to demonstrate true project or overall progress. However, many organizations are not sufficiently informed about which system of metrics to use, especially at site level, to show true energy savings progress.

This seminar will provide you with understanding of how to properly measure energy use and energy management program progress. It will discuss simple to very complex energy metric systems, providing real world examples of successfully employed energy metric programs. The instructor will show you how to define and simplify the inputs and outputs of each individual metric. You will also see clear illustrations of what the energy data itself can tell if it is organized and analyzed correctly.

You will leave this course with a much clearer understanding of how to organize, and analyze energy data, and how to optimally use energy metric systems that make true sense for your organization. Drawing from his more than 20 years experience preparing and analyzing comprehensive energy metrics, your instructor will empower you with practical tips to help you simplify and improve your overall program, show you several important energy metric "do's and don'ts," and give you the opportunity to get expert answers to your specific energy metric questions.
