Industrial Energy Systems Optimisation

This 1-day Advanced Industrial Energy Systems Optimisation training course is designed to refine the knowledge and skills of experienced technicians and practitioners around optimising the energy efficiency of industrial systems.

It also acts as a lead in to the CEP Energy Masters accreditation in Industrial Energy Systems Optimisation (IESO) and is recommended for anyone wishing to pursue that accreditation.

While there are no formal prerequisites for the course, it is designed for practitioners with at least three years’ experience or those that have previously completed the CEP Optimising Process Heat Systems training.  If you do not have at least three years’ experience, it is recommended you attend the CEP Optimising Process Heat Systems training before taking this course and the accreditation assessment.

Who is the course for?

The course looks at applying continuous improvement methodologies and designing and conducting effective trials and experiments using robust measurement and verification techniques.  The course content includes worked examples and the practicalities of delivering benefit from improved practices such as the calculation of energy and carbon savings and building these into business cases.

Attendee Feedback

“As an energy efficiency professional with 3-4 year of experience, this course provided good insight into using continuous improvement methodologies such as six sigma, lean, etc to implement energy saving measures. This is a really good course for anyone who works with energy efficiency on industrial sites with an ongoing engagement." Mannat Choski, Energy Consultant (Energy Solution Providers)
"Energy efficiency is one of the best investments any company can make as NZ transitions to a low carbon economy. This course provides informative content to enable professionals to partner with customers to perform ongoing efficiency improvements. The course provides content to develop a business case, an overview of continuous improvement methodologies, and how to confirm energy savings through formalised Measurement & Verification (IPMVP) process. Recommend the course for anyone in the energy efficiency industry, even if not directly involved with industrial systems." Anthony Gates, Mechanical Engineer (BECA)
