Green Energy Manager Course
Do you want to Manage Energy or just talk about Energy Management? This is the message conveyed by the Energy Management course. Energy is critical to organizations, but often represents a significant cost – both to them and the environment.
Upon successful completion of the program and examination, earn the Certified Green Energy Manager (GEM) designation by the World Green Economy Council (WGECO) as well as a Professional Diploma in Energy Management by Global University of Science & Technology (GUST).
World energy consumption continues to rise : it has more than doubled in the last 40 years and is projected to increase a further 30 % by 2040. What’s more, energy is the major contributor to climate change, making up nearly 60 % of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Taking action to better manage our energy consumption not only helps the planet, it saves money for companies and society as a whole. A study commissioned by the ClimateWorks Foundation, a NGO that leverages the power of collective philanthropy in the fight against climate change, showed that if more were done to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon growth in the industrial and buildings sectors alone, we could make over USD 3.2 trillion in public health-related savings.
The three main objectives of the course are to:
- Provide participants with a basic understanding of contemporary energy management and leadership best practices.
- Provide participants with a set of tools in order to conceptualize problems and develop solutions to energy management issues.
- Respond to and meet the demands of public and private sector organizations for energy management and leadership talents.
