This management course does far more than providing ‘technical fixes’ as it strives to systematize the control of energy in an organization. Delegates will be asked to use the data from their organizations to develop practical and useful methods for reducing energy consumption. They will then be shown how to integrate energy considerations as a normal part of business management.
No academic credits can be obtained by attending this course.
