An upcoming webinar will discuss workforce training programs in energy assessment and management for the industrial and commercial buildings sectors. In this webinar, an international panel of experts will describe workforce training programs in their countries that facilitate greater energy management proficiency in industry and commercial buildings. Collectively, these programs provide a strong foundation to help companies and personnel in these sectors implement an energy management system (EnMS) and continually improve how they use their energy.

This webinar accompanies the recent release of this report, Knowledge and Skills Needed to Implement Energy Management Systems in Industry and Commercial Buildings. This report was developed by the Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP) Energy Management Working Group (EMWG), of which I am a participant. The EMWG web page explains more about the EMWG and its activities in promoting energy management workforce training in industry and commercial buildings. Visit the blog, which will feature a post on EMWG workforce development in the near future.
