EMA Recognised Energy Manager
The EMA believes that the knowledge and understanding of a range of energy management competencies are required for individuals to effectively manage organisational energy cost, consumption and its monitoring and reporting, as well as energy efficiency requirements. Many energy management practitioners have the skills to understand their organisation’s energy usage, consumption patterns, trend data and operational requirements but very few are professionally recognised as Energy Managers.
The EMA has introduced the Recognised Energy Manager status for those professionals who can demonstrate comprehensive knowledge of energy management. The professional’s level of energy management knowledge and skillset can be assessed through the EMA Knowledge and Skills Gap Analysis interview – an informal conversation based on the professional’s experience achieved to date. A satisfactory completion of the interview results in the EMA Recognised Energy Manager status being awarded to the professional.
