POWER LUNCH Webinar – Cogeneration – Improve the Future of your Facility
Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019  |  11:30 - 12:00 p.m.


Combined Heat and Power (also known as Cogeneration), provides an opportunity to generate on-site electric power and useful thermal energy from a single fuel source. CHP technologies include, but are not limited to: reciprocating engines, combustion turbines, microturbines, steam turbines, and fuel cells. These technologies can represent cost-effective, near-term opportunities to improve your facility’s energy, environmental, economic, and resiliency future. This presentation will provide an overview of CHP technologies, explore different market applications, and highlight available technical and financial resources to help your facility evaluate CHP.

The Ameren Illinois Energy Efficiency Program is partnering with the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) Central Illinois Chapter to host a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP) training this spring.


Energy Efficiency Practitioner

The Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP) program covers the core energy efficiency essentials and is geared towards energy technicians, new energy professionals, energy practitioners, facility managers, maintenance managers, building operators, and government energy & facility personnel. The program serves as a fundamental building block for additional individual professional development such as obtaining the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) or Business Energy Professional (BEP) designation.


Certified Energy Manager

The Certified Energy Manager is an individual who optimizes the energy performance of a facility, building or industrial plant. The CEM is a systems integrator for electrical, mechanical, process and building infrastructure, analyzing the optimum solutions to reduce energy consumption in a cost effective approach. CEM’s are often team leaders and help to develop and implement their organizations’ energy management strategies.
