Energy Training

COVID-19 Update: Energy Training is available in an online environment. Contact us for more information.


Municipalities often struggle to find energy training that is relevant to them. That is why our energy training workshops focus on the specific needs of our municipalities. Together with Stephen Dixon of Knowenergy, we have built a suite of cost-effective, customizable workshops delivered on-site at your convenience.  Use these workshops to cut utility costs, comply with regulations, or increase your knowledge.

Current Energy Training Opportunities

Energy Efficient Building Operations Workshops (EEBO)

These customizable sessions put you in the driver seat by allowing you to choose the technical content and timeframe appropriate for your facilities and staff.  Select from 9 different modules to learn how energy behaves, where it is used, and how to effectively control it in your building.  The workshop provides flexible, on-site technical training specific to a broad range of municipal facilities that will be both cost effective and time efficient. The IESO’s SaveONenergy Training & Support incentive covers up to 50% or $300/person/day of each workshop fee for eligible participants.

Dollars to Sense (D2$) Municipal Workshops

Dollars to Sense workshops are made to suit staff whether energy management amateurs or experts  The content from Natural Resources Canada is made up of 30 customizable modules.  We can create a unique D2$ solution for your municipality based on what interests you most.  Part of the workshop could include an Energy Treasure Hunt where attendees work together to find hidden energy savings throughout your facility.  This cost effective workshop is eligible for 75% incentives through the IESO’s SaveONenergy Training & Support incentive.

Excellent workshop. Great way for municipal staff and other high energy cost sectors alike to learn how small behavioral changes can create large energy savings.

Ron Rody,  Mayor, Municipality of Wawa (Re: Employee Engagement)

The workshop was fantastic! Congrats to all the organizers! Becoming more educated on the subject matter has increased my awareness and made me re-think energy in both the workplace and at home!
