Training

Effective planning and implementation of any energy-related project or program can only go so far. Beyond the initial implementation, the long term success of any program or project must rely on the personnel who have day-to-day responsibility for the facility. Throughout the portfolio of projects implemented by the EMRA Team, the final and most critical element in the implementation process and long term success has been the education, training, and outreach components for facility operators, management and occupants. Team members have been involved in the development of nationally recognized energy professional certification courses, graduate level teaching for energy engineering students, and are engaged in numerous training and education activities for trades such as facility operators. This ability to assemble and conduct education and outreach programs has been used in many individual client projects to educate facility owners, operators, and occupants and is an asset to our clients whether as part of a specialized training program or just as a small integrated part of a energy audit or building upgrade project.

The EMRA Team senior staff personnel have extensive experience in the areas of training and preparation of instructional tools. Between them they have developed training curricula and instructed thousands of individuals on various energy related topics over the past 28 years. These sessions range from novice to expert level and from 1/2 day to 2 weeks in duration. This training has been conducted for audiences ranging from operating personnel, maintenance staff, facility managers, owners, and program managers to design engineers and other energy professionals. They have also authored and/or revised dozens of publications, training manuals and books on various energy use issues and energy efficiency techniques, in addition to hundreds of journal and conference papers on these subjects. Additionally, many of these individuals have also authored books and/or written articles on array of energy efficient measures and related topics. Three members of the staff teach at the university level. Based on this vast experience we are well equipped to design a most effective set of materials to meet our client’s needs.

Some publicly available seminars featuring EMRA staff include Energy Auditing Fundamentals and Developing an Energy Management Master Plan. Customized programs can be developed to meet the specific needs of your organization, staff and/or clients.
