New Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme

The Energy Efficiency Council has launched the Energy Efficiency Certification Scheme, a professional certification scheme for the individuals that lead and manage comprehensive energy retrofits of commercial buildings.

The Scheme is operated by the Energy Efficiency Council on behalf of the sector and will:

  • identify industry leaders in the delivery of comprehensive energy retrofits of commercial buildings
  • provide a benchmark for aspiring energy efficiency professionals that wish to develop their skills and
  • enable commercial building owners and managers to identify industry professionals with the right expertise

Individuals who have experience working as part of project teams that implement energy efficiency retrofits of commercial buildings can become a Certified Energy Efficiency Specialist (CEES) which demonstrates:

  • their ability to contribute to effective integrated building energy retrofits as part of a project team, and
  • that they have the knowledge necessary to lead and manage integrated building energy retrofits.
