Focus on the organisational aspects of energy management systems, based primarily on ISO 50001.

A standardized methodology for conducting 500 low cost energy audits in small dairies has been developed.

The average savings per farm, found in the program, amounts to 705 kWh/month, (20% of the consumed energy), meaning a cost reduction of USD 274/month, (38% of the electricity bills).

Around 50% of the audited farms, have already implemented at least 1 energy conservation measure suggested, and the program is still monitoring new implementations.

We conclude that It is possible to improve the energy performance of dairy farms, by incorporating various cost-effective measures.

This approach is suitable for all kind of SME´s, and this experience could be useful to design and develop energy efficiency programs in SME´s.

This course trains energy managers in industry to be the top management representative, focussing on a top management – energy manager teamwork.

The course is structured into 15 e-Learning modules, including illustrative case studies for industry. The duration of each module is of about 10 minutes.

The 15 modules total approximately 4-5 hours. The recommended duration to complete the course is 1 month.

At the end of the course, we invite your feedback.

This course offers a foundation training on energy management. It is based primarily on the ISO 50001 standard. It is organised in 9 chapters:

  1. Introduction to energy management
  2. The role of top management
  3. The role of the energy manager
  4. Energy review
  5. EnMS planning
  6. Implementation & operation
  7. Managing performance improvement
  8. Verifying performance improvement
  9. Management review

The learning goals are for the energy manager to fully understand the energy management cycle and start the development of his organisation’s energy management system.

The main goal of this course is to help small and medium-size enterprises, or SMEs, plan for, develop, implement, and manage an energy management system, or EnMS.

We will discuss what it takes to build a successful energy management system, including some of the specific challenges faced by small and medium enterprises, and we will present case studies to illustrate key concepts.

This course should take approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete and is composed of 18 units divided over 6 modules listed here. Each unit takes between 5-10 minutes in length.
