SUMMER Energy Management Certificate
Annual Specialized Training Event
Future Dates TBD
EMC is an advanced certificate program designed for Engineers, Technicians, Educators, Facility Maintenance staff, and Energy Managers. EMC is a performance-based certificate program that requires each student to implement an efficient project, resulting in an immediate hands-on experience for the student, and rapid energy savings for clients and employers.
This program goes beyond the fundamentals and teaches a broad spectrum of energy management principles and techniques. The EMC starts with an intense 2-week course of study with campus facilities serving as the program laboratory. During this time students reside at the University of Oregon - room and board are provided. Students then return to their place of employment and use their new knowledge and skills to develop an energy savings project. Throughout the “project year” following the workshop, students will have the support and advice of the energy professionals at NWEEI as they measure energy use, analyze possible savings, and implement their project. EMC Topics include building energy use, glazing, insulation, building envelope, heating/cooling, secondary HVAC, controls, central plant equipment, energy auditing, operation and maintenance. Each topic is covered by a discipline expert.
