Effective energy management is now an essential aspect of all successful businesses. The Energy Institute offers a range of training and education packages to suit those involved in any form of energy management.

Why EI Energy Management Training?

Effective energy management is an essential tool in helping to reduce carbon emissions, improve efficiency and save money.

The Energy Institute's energy management training programmes are designed to support energy management professionals throughout their career by providing progression through three distinct levels of training.

Quality training from industry experts

Our expert trainers are chartered and have a wealth of industry experience and expertise. Our online and distance-learning programmes also come with the same expert-level tutor support.

Network with other professionals

The EI often organises social events for course delegates throughout the year - course attendees will have the opportunity to network with other professionals from their own course and those completing other course levels, both during and following their course.

Make a difference in your organisation

Each of our three levels of energy management training incorporate a practical project based on tackling a real issue in your organisation that is completed during and/or following the course.

Access free CPD resources

The EI offers a number of free resources to support your ongoing professional development between training courses. These include free CPD articles that can be completed and returned for CPD credit, as well as webinars and briefings on new legislation such as ESOS.

Training and chartership

The skills taught as part of the EI's energy management training programmes contribute towards meeting the criteria required for achieving Chartered Energy Manager status - a title exclusively offered by the EI, which recognises the expertise and experience of energy managers.

In-house training

If none of the standard training options presented here meet your needs or if you are looking to train a group of staff, perhaps on your own premises, then you may want to consider having a course tailored to your specific requirements.

The EI can create bespoke programmes from a combination of our existing course content or develop a unique programme from scratch using our specialised qualified trainers.

"I've been a member of the Energy Institute for 4 years now and in that time I've completed the L1 and L2 courses. These training programmes have greatly benefited both me personally and the organisation I work for by lifting my knowledge of energy/sustainability practices and improving our businesses offering to our clients and stakeholders. It has also given me a great many reliable resources from which to call upon when I get stuck on a particular challenge and the institute has enormous reach globally in this sector."

Lewis Payne

Lewis Payne, Engineering Support Manager, Energy Management

"I thoroughly enjoyed completing my Level 1 Certificate in Energy Management Essentials. In order to complete the course, I had to take an exam and complete an energy audit portfolio which I took great joy in putting together. After this I am hoping to complete the second stage of my training with the Energy Institute (Level 2 Energy Management Professional). I then plan to progress to Level 3 ‘Advanced Energy Manager’ training qualification, and to apply to become a Chartered Energy Manager."

Edita Adamcikova

Edita Adamcikova, Senior Energy Manager, Viridor

"The Level 3 Advanced Energy Manager course has exceeded my expectations. The course was delivered by a number of energy industry professionals with years of experience, who all ensured that each topic was explained and talked through until everyone in the room was comfortable with it. Discussions and knowledge sharing were encouraged during every lesson, creating a great networking atmosphere. We started the course as a group of strangers, but even though the course finished almost a year ago, we still carry on meeting over good food or a drink to discuss the energy industry and our next career steps."

Natalie Maggs

Natalie Maggs, Section Head - Bureau, Octego

"The course has given me knowledge of the different types of equipment available to our clients and how each one could reduce / manage energy consumption and cost. It has also allowed me to see what is involved in an energy audit and what calculations are required to show the potential savings."

Chris McHale

"The training on Level 1 Certificate in Energy Management Essentials has certainly helped me to:

  • Become confident in the way we manage and monitor energy
  • Make instant energy savings - it gets you thinking of who your biggest energy consumers are
  • Effectively communicate energy ideas and promotions to the workforce
  • Review and update our site energy policy annually
