Energy Management

Energy management is the process of tracking, optimizing, and reducing energy consumption in a building or organization. Professionals working in this field are often drivers of projects consisting of collecting and analyzing energy consumption data, reducing energy use through the implementation of energy efficiency measures, optimizing equipment and scheduling in buildings, and incorporating renewable energy.

Given the link between energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, energy management is also tied to environmental protection and climate action. As a result, energy management professionals must often balance priorities between efficiency, environmental performance, and cost savings.
