Energy Efficiency Alberta covers 50% of the course fees for residents of Alberta only. The discount has already been applied on the listed fees.


In this workshop drawing from Natural Resources Canada’s Dollars to $ense training material, our experienced trainer will provide a high-level overview of energy efficiency (EE) and energy management and, most importantly, how it can benefit your organization in the short term. You will discover a straightforward, seven-step approach to energy savings which can be applied in industrial, commercial or institutional buildings. Interactive activities will help you understand and apply the concepts presented on topics such as lighting, motors, fans, pumps and more. This workshop is a great introduction to the money saving world of EE and will help you see the opportunities that can be funded by Energy Efficiency Alberta’s various programs.


Please note that this interactive workshop is limited to 20 participants.
