AEE’s Certified Business Energy Professional (BEP) program awards special recognition to those business, accounting, marketing and energy professionals who have demonstrated a high level of competence in their field of energy practice. Ideally suited to persons who supervise and manage technical professionals in energy.
The program offers a comprehensive learning forum for those who wish to culminate their business, accounting, marketing and energy experience and existing qualifications into a recognised international energy Certification. CBEP® training is followed by a voluntary examination which could lead to international Certification with the US-based Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). Designed for professionals who supervise and manage technical professionals in energy. These professionals may not be engineers, technicians or even technically oriented but they are business, marketing, accounting-oriented: procurement, management, energy accounting and reporting, performance contracting management, alternative financing, utility rates and project financing are critical elements of their job. They need an understanding of how energy efficiency opportunities impact the “bottom line” for their customers and their companies. They need to be able to communicate in non-technical terms the advantages and disadvantages of the various efficiency opportunities available. This program will enable these professionals to document that they understand the techniques necessary to excel.
