LCC Energy Management Program wins two Department of Energy (DOE) awards to fight Global Climate Change.
The Energy Management program has partnered with the University of Oregon (UO) and Oregon State University on two separate US Department of Energy Awards ($500k each) that fight Global Climate Change! The Energy Program has partnered with the UO Energy Studies in Buildings Lab (ESBL) to create the first-ever Building Energy and Controls Apprenticeship (BECA) program. The BECA prepares individuals who are searching for an employment path that helps to offset climate change. There are two components to the BECA, which are the LCC Energy Management two-year degree program, AND 2000 hours of paid apprentice employment with local (to you) practitioners called Training Agents.
The DOE awarded the OSU Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) funds to create the Small Commercial Building Assessment Center (SCBAC), which will be operated under the IAC umbrella. OSU will hire LCC Energy and Water Conservation students as student employees to conduct energy audits in commercial buildings that are 100k square feet or less in size. The LCC Energy and Water program staff will train and oversee the commercial building audits and report writing.
