Energy Awareness Training

What is Energy Awareness?

Energy Awareness training (EA) is a program that builds teamwork among co-workers in conserving energy and water, and reducing waste all the while reducing costs at work and at home. The training provides valuable information, both technical and behavioural, that will help individuals save energy and money. Each person’s actions matter. Learn how to help reduce climate change.

EA focuses on the behavioural changes we can each make to reduce energy consumption. SES will provide on-site presentations, which can range from 1/2 hour to 2 hours. Participants are encouraged to ask questions throughout the session, and at the end, indicate changes they will make. This information can then be given to the organizations showing what their greenhouse gas reduction should be. As well, a series of posters and suggested actions will be provided, relating to energy conservation issues specific to the facility.

Who can participate?

EA is open to all organizations and workplaces. Most individuals who use the facility attend the program. This includes managers, cleaning personnel, volunteers, office staff, and administration. All play an integral role in energy use of a building.
