Developed in consultation with business and energy specialists, the course utilises real energy information from the participant’s organisation, meaning the course provides immediate and tangible productivity benefits to the business.  The course outcomes include a customised energy management plan that has been expert-reviewed and is ready for implementation as well as growing in-house energy management capability through training key employees.

The course is suitable for people with managerial expertise who need to acquire a better understanding of energy productivity tools and technologies as well as those with technical backgrounds who need to broaden their skills into energy and carbon  productivity.
The course covers essential knowledge for consultants wishing to become a partner in the EECA "Energy Management Advisor" programme.

Course Feedback

"I would highly recommend that businesses hesitating between one or two participants go for two ..... Much more valuable than just one person taking the knowledge back to the organisation and explaining to other the benefits of what has been learned. "   
Roseline Klein, Sustainability Manager, Watercare Services Ltd

"Being able to share in the experience of the presenters over four days is a big opportunity not to be missed .... the 50001 checklist presented as part of the course is alone worth the fee."   Frans Plugge, Energy Consultant
