Energy Awareness and Action

Overview

An increasing number of organisations, of all sizes and sectors, are placing more focus on Energy Awareness and Management. The cost of energy continues to increase and legal drivers directly incentivise organisations to take action. At the same time, the climate continues to warm and customers expect organisations to play their part, contribute and make more eco-conscious products and services available.

This course will provide an introduction to energy management. The aim is to equip candidates with the knowledge and skills to identify, quantify and plan actions to reduce energy use whilst driving continual improvement of the energy performance of their organisation. Practical class exercises and case studies will be used to support theory.
