ABOUT THE SEMINAR

This program is designed for professionals who supervise and manage technical professionals in energy. These professionals may not be engineers, technicians or even technically oriented but they are business oriented. Procurement, management, energy accounting and reporting, performance contracting management, alternative financing, utility rates and project financing are critical elements of their job. They need an understanding of how energy efficiency opportunities impact the "bottom line" for their customers. They need to be able to communicate in non technical terms the advantages and disadvantages of the various efficiency opportunities available. This program will enable these professionals to document that they understand the techniques necessary to excel. The BEP exam will be administered at the close of instruction on day five of each seminar -- only to those who have qualified in advance to sit for the exam by submitted a completed BEP application and fee.

For instructions on obtaining your BEP application or for further information on the BEP program, visit www.aeecenter.org/bep.

Basic Skills Required for This Seminar
Although the BEP certification is not strongly technically based, there are still some formulas and calculations utilized in the presentation of this seminar which are essential to understanding some of the basic principles of business energy management. Those needing a refresher program covering effective use of a hand calculator and use of formulas may wish to participate in the Basics of Energy Management self-study seminar prior to taking this seminar.
