Courtesy: Energy Management AssociationThe Energy Management Association (EMA) is dedicated to advancing the quality of energy management services for the benefit of building owners. EMA responds to a need created by the growing importance of managing and reducing energy consumption in buildings and the emphasis on the total building envelope. EMA membership is open to individuals, corporate suppliers of products and services, building owners and facility managers. Its mission is to provide guidelines, training, education and certification programs.

The foundation of EMA is its Energy Management Professional program (EMP). EMPs are individuals who demonstrate the requisite knowledge and experience of the energy management process and are committed to serve as advocates of the building owner. To become a certified EMP, a candidate must pass the EMP exam, a rigorous test of principles of energy management and analysis, commissioning, and field testing. EMA provides workshops, webinars and an Energy Management Guideline to prepare for the EMP exam.

The EMP was originally administered by the AABC Commissioning Group (ACG), the leading organization of certified, independent commissioning authorities. Due to its popularity and interest from stakeholders outside the commissioning community, the ACG board created EMA as a stand-alone association to administer the EMP program and other energy-related programs.

The formal announcement of the EMA will take place during the Cx Energy 2014 Conference and Expo, where it serves as a co-presenter.
