The Journey to Becoming an Energy Manager

Category:

For some energy management is the art of applying engineering and technical principles, experience, judgment, and common sense to purchasing and reducing energy used. Others go beyond this definition and link energy management to monitoring and comparing energy consumption and applying energy efficient processes and products that benefit their organisation and adjust behavioural practices of people around them. Energy management is a broad subject and energy managers can wear many hats in an organisation.
The panel will discuss their journey to becoming a fully competent energy manager.
