New Energy Management Association has its Roots in Commissioning
Energy managers have another new trade association – the Energy Management Association (EMA) – dedicated to advancing the quality of energy management services for the benefit of building owners.
The foundation of EMA is its Energy Management Professional program (EMP). To become a certified EMP, a candidate must pass the EMP exam, a test of principles of energy management and analysis and commissioning. EMA provides workshops, webinars and an Energy Management Guideline to prepare for the EMP exam.
The group says its EMP program has evolved from a building-commissioning base, which distinguishes it from other energy management certifications.
EMA membership is open to individuals, corporate suppliers of products and services, building owners and facility managers. Its mission is to provide guidelines, training, education and certification programs.
The Association of Energy Engineers established the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) credential in 1981 and has certified more than 14,000 professionals with the CEM designation, and the National Institute of Building Sciences is doing some work to define “energy manager.”
