Energy conservation officers

Dec. 4, 2018, 11:19 a.m.

Energy conservation officers generate energy efficiency improvements in public, private and commercial buildings via a range of methods including practical solutions, education and the promotion of renewable energy sources.

Most energy conservation officers are employed by health trusts, utilities, charities, energy partnerships/agencies and within the housing or environmental health departments of local authorities.

Key responsibilities of the job include:

  • visiting local businesses, landlords, home owners and tenants as appropriate

  • providing energy efficiency advice and training

  • promoting energy conservation schemes (such as energy efficiency housing grants)

  • liaising with contractors, local organisations, council services and voluntary/community groups

  • developing, implementing and monitoring energy consumption reduction policies and strategies

  • producing specifications, estimates, drawings, feasibility studies, tender documents and work schedules

  • analysing data and collating information

  • maintaining accurate records

  • writing plans and reports

  • attending regional meetings and events

  • preparing and distributing publicity materials

  • undertaking energy suveys/site inspections

  • keeping up to date with changes in legislation and initiatives, including EU energy performance directives

  • promoting energy conservation awareness via events such as presentations, workshops and conservation projects

Energy conservation is currently a small profession with a limited number of opportunities. Consequently vacancies tend to attract strong competition.

 

Qualifications and training required

 

To become an energy conservation officer it is usually necessary to possess an appropriate degree/HND gained in a subject such as energy engineering, environmental health, environmental sciences/management, surveying or engineering. A driving licence and health and safety training can be helpful, as can a relevant postgraduate qualification, experience of initiating and managing projects and supervising others.

 

Key skills for energy conservation officers

 

Candidates should possess confidence, initiative, and excellent IT and organisational skills. Communication skills are also important: energy conservation officers have to explain technical information to people without technical knowledge. Candidates should also be able to demonstrate a genuine interest and understanding of the energy market, including renewable energy sources and legislation.
