The Leadership and Change for Energy Efficiency in Accounting and Management Project
Presentation at a Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP) Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) webinar on the workforce training programs that facilitate greater energy management proficiency in industry and commercial buildings.
January 29, 2014
In this webinar, an international panel of experts describes workforce training programs in their countries that facilitate greater energy management proficiency in industry and commercial buildings. Collectively, these programs provide a strong foundation to help companies and personnel in these sectors implement an energy management system (EnMS) and continually improve how they use their energy.
Patrick Crittenden describes the Australia’s Leadership and Change for Energy Efficiency in Accounting and Management project. The primary aim of this project is to develop the awareness, skills and knowledge that current and future accountants and business managers need to actively progress the implementation of energy efficiency initiatives in the workplace.
The presentation includes the following topics:
the rationale for the program including why accountants and managers from undergraduate students through to senior level managers were the target audience for the training
each of the training and education interventions and the materials developed
lessons learnt from the project
strategies for building on and further engaging managers and accountants in the topic of energy efficiency
Other speakers discuss training programs in Canada, South Africa and the United States.
This webinar accompanies the recent release of this report, Knowledge and Skills Needed to Implement Energy Management Systems in Industry and Commercial Buildings. This report was developed by the Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP) Energy Management Working Group (EMWG). The EMWG web page explains more about the EMWG and its activities in promoting energy management workforce training in industry and commercial buildings.
