Engineering professionals who intend to build their careers as energy managers need to understand principles related to the management and economics of energy. This module covers the setting up of energy management systems (including an introduction to ISO 50001), the formation of the energy management team and the integration of energy management systems into business practice. Also covered are Singapore's energy management policies and energy market tariff structure to enable better evaluation of supply contracts for reducing energy costs.
Participants will also learn how to evaluate financial attractiveness of energy retrofit projects using simple payback, ROI, time value of money, etc and understand the various energy performance contracting models such as guaranteed savings and shared savings. Candidates taking the EME paper are to be familiar with:
Energy Conservation Act 2012; Energy Conservation (Energy Management Practices) Regulations 2013; revised 31st May 2014
SS/ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems – Requirements with guidance for use
Energy Market Authority – Electricity Policies and Regulations
Participants will also be required to complete a self-directed e-learning.
Developing a demand management plan and knowing about the energy management system are important for energy efficiency investments. As energy managers, learners need to know the methodology, benchmarks, and audit procedures needed to set up an efficient energy management system. In this way, they will know what can or cannot be done as they perform their analysis and calculations for energy efficiency investment.
Learners will then be able to develop demand management plans by conducting pre-audits checks on-site and developing demand management or integrated energy solution proposals for their organisation or clients of their organisation.
In this course, learners will learn how they can
- Develop an energy management system
- Conduct economic analysis and calculate potential savings based on prevailing market prices and usage
- Design demand management plans based on energy demand and market prices
Participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment by SSG after fulfilling all attendance, assignment and assessment requirements
