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 a clearer understanding of ISO 50001, and how best to reduce energy consumption using the parameters set forth in this program. Individuals who may 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 considering energy management options
  • 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 ISO 50001, and how best to reduce energy consumption utilizing the program's guidelines.

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.


Until recently, from an ISO point of view, systematic and long lasting energy reduction was to be addressed using ISO 14001, which deals primarily with environmental issues, and could also optionally include energy management. Then in June of 2011, ISO published its separate Energy Standard 50001, which provides another accepted ISO methodology aimed toward systematic energy reduction. However, unlike ISO 14001, ISO 50001 strictly addresses energy management. While structured similarly to 14001, ISO 50001 also has many differences and added improvements for those seeking optimally effective energy management.

If your team is already familiar with ISO systems through quality programs like ISO 9001 or 14001, going the next step with ISO 50001 can be relatively easy once you know its specifics. Even without prior ISO experience, many organizations are realizing that ISO 50001 is a fairly easy way to ensure proper energy systems management and achieve energy reduction, while at the same time improving community or corporate image.

This course will review the genesis and specifics of ISO 50001. The instructor will then describe how to best address energy reduction using this standard, with a great many examples provided for its specific implementation. Also examined will be the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program, which incorporates as one element ISO 50001, as well as details on how to achieve this DOE SEP designation.

You will leave this session with a much clearer understanding of what the ISO standard encompasses, and how to apply/implement this to meet, and likely surpass, your specific energy reduction desires or needs.
