Local businesses and organisations are being encouraged to learn how they can begin to take control of their energy usage, become more energy efficient and reduce their energy bills by attending the next Energy Champions Training Course, which is being held on the 28 and 29 of January 2014.
Richard Ronan MHK, the Member with responsibility for Energy within the Department of Economic Development commented:
‘The Government’s energy policy aims to minimise the impact of our energy use on the Environment.
‘Having a trained energy champion within an organisation can help cut energy usage and associated costs. We have examples of local organisations cutting their annual energy bills by up to 30% through the implementation of simple energy-saving initiatives learned on the course.’
There are currently 66 trained Energy Champions in the private sector and 60 Energy Champions within the public sector.
On completion of the course an Energy Champion will have a thorough understanding of energy efficiency, energy management, energy auditing as well as ongoing monitoring and reporting.
The second day of the course also includes a site visit to a local business to implement the lessons learned.
The cost of the course is £100 ex VAT and is delivered by Kevin Burnell from ISO QA Isle of Man Ltd.
