Energy Efficiency And Sustainability

Why Attend
Developing energy-efficiency strategies requires a mindset
shift on sustainability. A deep understanding and practical
solutions for implementation are needed to steer this
process effectively within organizations in the industrial,
residential, and commercial sectors. On this course, you’ll gain
key knowledge of how viable energy-efficiency measures can
be implemented throughout your organization.

Since energy efficiency has come to the forefront of
sustainability as a core business and societal value, regulatory
and global standards are influencing the implementation of
these emerging technologies.

Course Methodology
This online course integrates rich, interactive media such as videos,
infographics, as well as traditional didactic components, such as written study guides (course notes). There
are also opportunities for collaborative learning through discussion.

Target Audience
Anyone who wants to achieve greater comprehension of energy efficiency and how to reduce
energy costs, like to understand and partake in energy audits and as well as develop action plans to
improve the energy-management system
This course is suited for engineers, building designers, and energy professionals – in private or public sectors
– who are interested in researching and developing opportunities for energy efficiency. It would also be of
interest in energy and environmental consultants looking to deepen their skills and obtain a certificate in
energy efficiency.
