From the national perspective, the importance of energy conservation (EC) cannot be overemphasized. The benefits of energy conservation are significant to the nation’s economy and performance in the management of its environment. Improving energy efficiency will lead to significant cost-savings and thereby improving competitiveness. Energy conservation activities will also help to conserve the usage of the nation’s limited natural resources and at the same time reduce the negative environmental impacts. The implementation of energy efficiency (EE) programs will focus on energy-saving features in the industrial and commercial sectors. In this regard, EE features in buildings and establishing comprehensive energy management system will be encouraged. In addition, the industrial sector will be encouraged to implement EE measures including improvements in plant, equipment and processes.



On successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

    • Understand the benefits and implications of EC and EE problem solving programs, and relate the concepts to the overall business mission and objectives.
    • Think about his/her organization as a collection of processes, with inputs that determine the output.
    • Use the concept of FEC and EE systems engineering problem solving to evaluate the capability of a process or organization.
    • Recognize the engineering problem solving model used to improve processes.
    • Recognize the organizational factors that are necessary groundwork for a successful engineering problem solving program.
    • Integrate the EE and EC systems engineering problem solving program effort with other process improvement initiatives.
