05/10/2011


Schneider Electric and the American Hotel & Lodging Education Institute (AHLEI) have partnered to offer the Energy University curriculum to AHLEI members. Hospitality professionals can earn education credits toward their industry re-certification requirements through Energy University courses.

Designed to provide the fundamentals needed to implement energy-efficient solutions, Energy University currently has more than 30,000 registered users from over 120 countries, and 50 courses in its curriculum. The program is available in multiple languages, and has been approved for continuing education credits by numerous professional organizations globally. 

AHLEI delivers hospitality education to hospitality professionals and offers professional certifications, including Certified Hotel Administrator (CHA), Certified Lodging Manager (CLM), Certified Engineering Operations Executive (CEOE), and Certified Maintenance Manager (CMM). Hospitality professionals who hold these certifications have responsibilities for energy management in their various properties and can benefit from the information provided in the Energy University courses.

“Energy management is essential to the profitability and sustainability of today’s lodging operations,” said Robert L. Steele III, president and COO of AHLEI. “Schneider Electric, as a member of American Hotel & Lodging Assn.’s energy and environment committee, is the ideal resource to provide certified hospitality professionals with the energy management knowledge they need to keep their operations profitable and sustainable.”

 “We continue to see an increased awareness in industries such as hotels and lodging, and on the part of hospitality professionals overall, to implement stronger and more effective energy efficient solutions for their properties,” said Guy Dufraisse, senior vice president of Solutions and Energy Efficiency, Schneider Electric. “Energy savings of 30% or more are typical, so these measures have a very positive impact on the bottom line. The environmental impact is also significant, as these properties are large users of water, power, heat, and air conditioning.”
