Building Efficiency and the Energy Management Profession is Key to Progress
(Washington, DC April 21, 2021)— The Energy Management Association is honoring Earth Day by calling attention to a critical and overlooked solution to wasted energy: building efficiency.
The statistics tell a bleak story – EMA partner ENERGY STAR estimates that 30% of the energy consumed by US buildings is wasted, and according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration US residential and commercial buildings account for 40 percent of energy consumption. EMA recognizes that energy efficiency is a proven remedy for a green future. To tackle the feat, the group urges rising STEM students on Earth Day to enter the energy management field. They will find community, support, professional development, and continuing education resources with EMA. Below is a list of upcoming training sessions open to the public:
