Businesses will gain insight on how to better manage their energy consumption at a series of free workshops at the Energy Efficiency Expo in Melbourne.
The workshops are a joint venture between the Energy Efficiency Council and Sustainability Victoria. The two half-day energy management workshops are focused on providing business with the skills, knowledge and insights to increase their competitive advantage through improving energy management.
Each workshop will include two online learning modules while offering practical, collaborative and ‘hands-on’ learning for participants.
Day one’s workshop focus on helping business understand energy consumption, how to assess energy bills, learn how to interpret energy data, identify costs savings and build an energy management action plan.
While Day two’s workshop, is aimed at larger businesses, it will provide tools for participants to build a case for energy efficiency within their business.
Luke Menzel, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Efficiency Council, said the purpose of the Energy Efficiency Expo is to give business owners practical information on how to take control of their energy costs. T
“That’s why I’m really excited we’re running two free energy management workshops at the Expo. It means you can get inspired by the leading businesses that feature in the conference program, then roll up your sleeves and learn more about energy management in a practical, hands-on workshop that can help translate ideas into action.”
As the cost of doing business rises, Rowan Moorey, Project Lead – Sustainable Finance & Sustainable Buildings, Sustainability Victoria, said Victorian businesses are spending 20-30 per cent more energy than they need to.
“Businesses are now looking to energy efficiency as a way to improve productivity and running costs. Come along to two half-day courses presented by the Energy Efficiency Council, to learn how you can lower your overall energy use, create an energy action plan, while making it all financially possible for your business.”
