The Energy Management Association (EMA) is expanding its reach – and furthering its goal of advancing the quality of energy management products and services – through a media partnership with Energy Manager Today (EMT). The EMA will now reach an additional 100,000 monthly visitors and 20,000 newsletter subscribers via EMT’s digital platforms. Partnership with EMT will help the association reach its goal of expanding its membership beyond building owners to include contractors, facility managers, manufacturers, utilities, engineers, and others.
EMA has adopted a process-oriented approach to energy management which is described in its recently published Energy Management Guideline. The approach is designed to assist building owners in achieving energy savings while maintaining optimum building performance. The method is data-driven as opposed to a process of making assumptions and calculations based on unreliable information.
The EMA’s Energy Management Professional certification program is recognized by the Department of Energy’s Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines and accredited by the American National Standards Institute. The founding members of EMA are certified by the program, which was developed by certified commissioning authority ACG. Management of the program has been transferred to EMA.
Working with Energy Manager Today provides “an opportunity to further reach the huge body of energy and facility managers in the US,” says EMA executive director Ed Armstrong. Certified Energy Management Professionals offer expert services, Armstrong says, and he looks forward to the opportunity to promote those services and grow their ranks among the next generation of energy managers.
For its official media partner, the association will deliver Energy Manager Today’s newsletter to its member base, EMA affiliates, website, and other media platforms.
