Presented online in a series of three live two-hour time modules, this seminar covers all aspects of creating and implementing a successful, cost-reducing energy management program for any size or type of organization.

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.

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

About the Seminar

This course earns .6 CEUs, 6 PDHs and 1.2 AEE Credits toward Re-certification.

This seminar will take you step by step through the process of developing an energy management program -- or more broadly, an Energy Master Plan (EMP) -- to achieve more efficient energy consumption and lower total operating costs. The instructor will show you how to incorporate longer range planning of energy cost reduction and control, and develop a fully integrated energy management program which moves beyond the confines of traditional engineering to include:

  • energy procurement
  • energy- related equipment purchasing
  • M&V, staffing and training
  • communications
  • setting energy consumption targets
  • tracking/feedback loop systems

The Energy Master Planning process calls for a long-term perspective that more than simply cutting last year's energy use. Rather than seeing energy as a line item expense in the budget, it makes energy awareness part of the everyday operation and "mindset" of the organization.

This approach can be equally valuable, both to large, multi-facility organizations, as well as to small, single-owner operations with just a few employees.

Course Duration:

June 11-13, 2018 | 3-Days | 2 Hours per Day | 11 am - 1 pm.

The program consists of three 2-hour sessions, for a total of 6 hours of instruction. Completion of all three modules is required to receive CEU and PDH Credit, and Course Certificate awarded by AEE.

Your Realtime Program Instructor

FREDRIC S. GOLDNER, C.E.M., is a nationally recognized expert in the area of energy auditing and management. Founding principal of Energy Management & Research Associates (EMRA), he is involved in a wide variety of projects, including research, facility audits and use analyses, and energy software development and program design. Over an eight year span he conducted extensive research in the area of multifamily building DHW loads and systems. As a result he authored a new set of DHW sizing guidelines included in the 1995 ASHRAE Handbook, and the ASPE DWH Design Manual. Mr. Goldner is also an adjunct professor at the Center for Energy Policy & Research at NYIT. He has received many awards for his work, most notably being inducted into the Energy Managers Hall of Fame in 2007, for his lifetime of achievement in promoting the practices and principles of energy management. He sits on numerous engineering and industry committees and boards, and has served on the Certified Energy Manager Board since 2006. Mr. Goldner remains an active member of the New York Chapter AEE Board of Directors, and served as International President of the Association of Energy Engineers for 2003.
