The United States Agency for International Development, through its Caribbean Clean Energy Program, awarded scholarships to 25 professionals from 13 institutions to undertake a 6-week energy management training course.

The technical training, which commenced on March 6 in Kingston, is being conducted in partnership with the Jamaica Society of Energy Engineers (JSEE) and aims to support the capacity building needs of participating institutions and raise the professional standards of those engaged in the practice of energy management in Jamaica.

Each scholarship is valued at US$2,000 and covers the preparatory course and examination fees for the globally recognized Certified Energy Manager (CEM) Certification offered by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). During the course, participants will undergo intensive training sessions designed to prepare them to sit the rigorous four-hour examination. The course curriculum includes energy use in buildings, energy auditing strategies, and how to identify energy savings opportunities.

Participants were strategically selected from public and private institutions that play an integral role in the energy sector including the Ministry of Science Energy & Technology’s Government Electrical Inspectorate, Bureau of Standards Jamaica, Development Bank of Jamaica, Jamaica Public Service, National Water Commission, Jamaica Institute of Architects, University of the West Indies, and National Housing Trust.

Those who are successful in passing the exam will become Certified Energy Managers equipped with the knowledge and skills to optimize the energy performance of buildings and industrial plants across the country.

USAID continues to support institutional strengthening and development of Jamaica’s Energy Sector as part of its mission to foster energy efficiency and renewable energy growth in the Caribbean.
