Energy management I – Key principles in practice (English)

The Key Principles of Energy Management course will introduce participants to strategies and practical procedures for reducing energy consumption, costs and CO2 emissions (Zero Carbon, Net Zero strategy).

  • Under the guidance of an experienced lecturer, participants apply the content mainly using exercises and examples from practice.
  •  The lecturer of the course is John Mulholland, an international expert in the field of Energy Management , who works in various manufacturing and service industries and for business organizations in 12 countries.
  • The course will show how to connect three key factors of energy management in practice – data solutions, technical solutions and work with people .
  • An invitation from John Mulholland in a short video.

The form of realization of the course is  face-to-face or online (or both forms) .
The working methods used in the training programs are chosen in such a way as to ensure interactivity, adaptation of the content to the needs of the participants and a  priority focus on the transfer of knowledge into practice .
