An Energy Manager (EM) 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. He/ she needs 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 existing knowledge.
The EMA has developed a training programme that equips individuals with the minimum knowledge needed to operate effectively as an Energy Manager in the workplace.
The LEC Stage 3 Training Programme is intended for Candidates who are
– interested to become energy managers and apprentices
– newly appointed energy managers
– re-skilling from other professions such as sustainability, environment, facilities and engineering
– up-skilling existing energy management knowledge and skills
For those candidates who are already working we would recommend a minimum of 2-year experience in energy management and/ or sustainability/ environmental activities.
Candidates interested to become energy managers and newly appointed energy managers:
Apprentices and/or candidates with no previous knowledge and skills in energy management, and those newly appointed energy managers should follow a 5-step process as outlined in Fig.1. Completion of all steps will lead to their EMA Recognised Energy Manager status.
