Washington, D.C., United States, 13 April 2018: The Energy Management Association (EMA) announced that its Energy Management Professional (EMP) credential achieved accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and has become a recognised certification by the Department of Energy’s (DoE) Better Buildings Workforce Guidelines programme, through a Press communiqué.

Commenting on the development, Robert Knoedler, President, EMA, said, “This is an important milestone for the EMP credential. Recognition by ANSI and DOE demonstrates their acknowledgement that EMPs are professionals with the specialised knowledge, skills and experience to provide a variety of energy-related services to building owners, institutions, corporate and utility administrators and various federal, state and local agencies.”

The communiqué said that EMA’s EMP Certification Program was developed to respond to the need for a commissioning-based energy management protocol that could be deployed in retro-commissioning and energy retrofit projects. The communiqué further said that EMPs create added value by comprehensively addressing the energy efficiency of building systems and their ongoing operations; whereas many traditional approaches rely on limited solutions that do not fully address overall building performance.
