Welcome to the latest edition of The EMA Magazine.
I was keen to take the opportunity to introduce this edition and emphasise the importance the EMA can play in knowledge sharing and our continued professional development.
As part of my role with Skanska I keep a close eye on new technologies, constantly looking for new solutions we can apply in the projects we build and the facilities we manage. This is an exciting role but comes with an ongoing need to expand my knowledge and for me, membership of the EMA is proving vital.
New technology is emerging at an ever increasing rate presenting fantastic opportunities for us energy managers, but with it comes challenge as it is usually our role to specify, select, design and implement these solutions sometimes pushing us from our comfort zone. This is where being able to draw on the collective knowledge of a wider network of likeminded professionals such as the membership of the EMA can add real value.
This edition is again packed with articles, interviews, knowledge and experience directly from our membership and I hope you find it interesting. But, I would also urge you to explore what else the EMA has to offer. You will find practical training, technology and buyer’s guides, members meetings, the EMA Energy Management Hub, targeted working groups and industry initiatives all designed to help you improve your knowledge, understanding and status as an energy manager.
