Strategic Energy Management: A Holistic Approach to Managing Energy in Your Organization Seminar. Managing energy successfully in an organization goes beyond simply knowing which equipment to buy and how to properly set controls. Instead, effectively managing the energy performance of BC's facilities requires thinking holistically about the organizational, technical and behavioural aspects of energy management.

The session is designed for individuals who are looking for an in-depth look at strategic energy management in a BC organization. With his 25 years of experience helping organizations save energy, Robert Greenwald will provide the theory, tools and real world energy management examples, covering the following topics:
  • Strategic Energy Management: assessment and planning
  • Organizational: exploring management and tracking systems
  • Technical: identifying projects and building the business case
  • People: championing competency building and staff engagement
This workshop will provide attendees with a combination of theory and practical application of energy management best practices. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to meet the needs of employers and clients in the field of sustainability and energy management systems. They will learn to apply energy management principles, standards and best practices effectively in professional practice.
