EMA Energy Management in Practice – LEC 3 Training Programme

Category: , ,

An Energy Manager performs an essential role in ensuring a company or organisation meets its energy, carbon and water reduction responsibilities within the context of wider sustainability imperatives – and the need for continual improvement. They need to be technically aware, numerate, have good communication skills both with senior management and energy end-users – and be keen to broaden and continually improve their existing knowledge and skills.

The EMA has developed a modular training programme that equips individuals with the minimum knowledge needed to operate effectively as an Energy Manager in the workplace. During this session three energy managers who deliver a range of LEC 3 courses will discuss the benefits of undertaking this EMA training programme to expand energy management skills and knowledge, and aspire to become EMA Recognised Energy Manager.

Trials and Tribulations of Getting into Energy Management

Category: ,

As someone who has come out of doing their Masters in 2014 with very little experience this lecture will talk about the challenges faced on getting to where I wanted to be in energy management at the age of 25 and how I got there. It will involve the problems I faced initially getting employed, the several jobs loosely affiliated with what I wanted to do, and the unpaid internship undertaken during my Masters which helped me get to where I am happy. It will also be used to prove you don't have to come from an Oxbridge university, and can come from anywhere to reach ambitious goals.
