Accomplishing maximum energy cost savings within an organization is most often a team effort involving individuals with varied backgrounds, responsibilities and levels of expertise in energy management methodologies and strategies. This comprehensive two-day instructional program is designed to help educate those who work in the energy management field on best practices for improving energy efficiency. Attendees will learn technical and organizational strategies, including energy management basics, various building systems considerations and terminology, simple payback fundamentals, energy measurement, commissioning and maintenance considerations, and the importance of sustainability.

The seminar is designed to serve as a preparatory training vehicle for the examination required to be completed by those interested in obtaining AEE's new Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP) professional certification; however the seminar is also open to those who simply wish to benefit from the training provided, and do not wish to sit for the exam following the seminar.

By obtaining the EEP certification, participants will gain industry and peer recognition by demonstrating their understating of technical and operational energy management principles. The program also serves as a fundamental building block for additional individual professional development such as obtaining the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) or the Business Energy Professional (BEP) designation.
