Energy Managers & Auditors
An energy manager plans, regulates and monitors energy use in an organisation or facility. They aim to improve energy efficiency through evaluating energy use and therefore, implement new policies and changes.
An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s).
Bureau of Energy Efficiency has conducted yearly National Level Examinations since 2004, for Energy Managers & Energy Auditors certification.
Energy Conservation Act, 2001
