Did you know that 30 percent energy savings is possible with today's technologies? Help your customers benefit from those savings – follow one or more of these EcoXpert certification paths in the categories of energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Energy Efficiency

Lighting and Lighting Controls – Lighting is one of the biggest energy wasters in commercial buildings. Through this training path, you’ll gain the expertise to help customers use efficient lighting and lighting controls to help reduce energy consumption and demand while providing years of sustainable savings.

Power Distribution – Some technologies designed to lower energy costs can actually cause unexpected power quality issues or unwanted harmonics that can have negative impacts on customer operations. This path will review the issues involved and how to apply Schneider Electric power factor correction and harmonic filtering solutions to enhance returns on system operations and ensure energy efficiency improvements.

Secure Power – Mission-critical businesses can't always trust the power grid to supply energy. They need to achieve a proper balance between reliability, efficiency and safety. This training path outlines how Schneider Electric solutions can guarantee a reliable supply of power for critical power applications.

HVAC Controls – Many variables inside and outside of buildings can influence HVAC system operation. In this path you’ll learn how incorporating Schneider Electric electronic motor control solutions, such as AC drives and soft starts, can increase occupant comfort, lower energy consumption and cut overall operating costs.

Energy Monitoring – Volatile energy prices and stringent emissions standards have made it more challenging for businesses to control operational costs. Learn how to implement Schneider Electric energy and power management systems to help reduce energy-related costs, optimize equipment utilization and increase equipment/process reliability for customers.
