Energy management uses engineering and economic principles to control energy costs while providing needed services in buildings and industry. The outcome of energy management is to generate savings through improvements in energy efficiency, changing energy use patterns, and/or shifting to other energy sources. Energy management projects help reduce the carbon offsets required by companies and realise additional non-utility benefits in sustainability improvement, production increase, and maintenance savings. Companies with an energy management focus are more competitive, comply with governmental and industrial regulations, may realise tax benefits, avoid environmental penalties, be energy independent, and have sustainable marketing and image.

The Advanced Energy Management training course will assist individuals and companies in reducing energy waste, preserving environmental resources, and being more cost-competitive. It exposes the delegates to technical system optimisation knowledge on electrical, thermal, and mechanical energy systems. Fundamentals to expert topics are covered, ensuring tangible value and lists of action steps to realise implemented savings. In addition to technical principles, management topics are also covered in energy procurement, resource allocation, decision making, commissioning, business case development, and performance contracting. The training course ultimately exposes participants to “cradle-to-grave” aspects of energy management.

The advanced energy manager will be able to identify, measure, and develop energy management opportunities in buildings and industrial facilities. The delegates will be able to deliver and sell quantified recommendations with much more confidence to key decision-makers. Implemented projects will enable companies to drastically reduce energy consumption, improve production processes or building comfort/productivity, and reduce maintenance costs.

By the end of this training course, the delegates will learn to:

  • Understand principles of energy
  • Understand energy procurement and energy tariffs/bills
  • Understand technical operation and areas of opportunities in electrical, thermal, and mechanical energy systems
  • Quantify potential savings and life cycle costs for recommended projects
  • Package sellable projects to be commissioned and sustained

The delegates will receive theoretical training through knowledge transfer methods that consider various teaching methodologies. This interactive training course includes discussions, calculations, and practical case studies.

Upon completion of this course, the organisational impact would: 

  • Improved technical capacity of the workforce on energy systems and its associated optimisation
  • Improved financial competitiveness and productivity
  • Improved operational management
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact
  • Improved marketing position due to net-zero by 2050 target alignment

On successful completion of this course, the delegate will be able to:

  • Appreciate the role and need for holistic systems integrated energy management
  • Understand the fundamentals of energy, point of use cost, energy balance and system efficiency
  • Understand technical areas of operation and wastage in the commercial and industrial energy system
  • Identify and quantify technical and non-technical energy management opportunities
  • Overcome conventional barriers to energy management project implementation and improve the probability of successful implementations to realise audited savings

Professionals involved in any aspect of energy management, whether technical or non-technical. The delegates influence the management, monitoring, or measurement of a facility or significant energy-consuming equipment.
