June 5, 2012: DOE Selects Teams to Train Certified Practitioners in Energy Management

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Advanced Manufacturing Office has selected two teams led by Georgia Tech Research Corp. and UL DQS Inc. and granted them licenses to train certified practitioners in energy management systems. These licenses allow the teams to provide energy efficiency skills, tools, and technology training and the necessary expertise to implement the new International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001 energy management standard for industrial plants and commercial facilities.

Selection of the two winning teams was the result of an open nationwide competition. UL DQS Inc. partnered with Schneider Electric, ARCADIS, and Integrated Renewable Energy to provide training expertise, and KRILLO Consulting Partners and UL University to provide design and delivery logistics. The second team — consisting of the Georgia Tech Research Corp. and the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) — draws upon a network of energy efficiency experts to market and deliver certified practitioner training.

These teams will provide classes that include an online pre-workshop followed by four days of face-to-face training. These classes will prepare attendees for the certified practitioner in energy management systems exam that is administered separately by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited Institute for Energy Management Professionals. Additional classes for the superior energy performance lead auditor and performance verifier exams will be held later in 2012.

Times and locations for training sessions will be posted on the Superior Energy Performance website at www.superiorenergyperformance.net and the Institute for Energy Management Professionals website at http://ienmp.com.

For more information on the two professional training teams, visit the Georgia Tech Research Corp. website at www.gtrc.gatech.edu or the UL DQS website at www.ul-dqsusa.com.
