Certified Energy Managers
The Certified Energy Manager is regarded as the Gold Standard in the energy industry and is the most recognised and respected certification in Energy Management. Individuals granted to use this designation by the Association of Energy Engineers have distinguished themselves as having earned the highest level of competency in energy. ECS currently has 4 staff members who hold this qualification.
Certified Measurement and Verification Professionals
The Association of Energy Engineers, in cooperation with the Efficiency Valuation Organisation (EVO), has established the Certified Measurement and Verification Professional programme with the dual purpose of recognising the most qualified professionals in this growing area of the energy industry and raising the overall professional standards within the Measurement and Verification field.
The International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol (IPMVP), first established by the United States Department of Energy, has become the internationally recognised protocol for performance Measurement and Verification (M&V).
The IPMVP guidelines, built with the help of organisations from 16 countries and hundreds of individual experts from 25 nations, provides a consistent, reliable approach to M&V around the world. Dr Mark Rawlins and Simmie Reddy are both CMVPs.
