Energy Conservation Technicians

Energy conservation technicians identify and measure the amount of energy used to heat, cool, and operate a building or industrial process. They analyze the efficiency of energy use and determine the amount of energy lost through wasteful processes or lack of insulation. After analysis, they suggest energy conservation techniques and install any needed corrective measures. Energy conservation technicians are also known as energy auditors, energy efficiency auditors, and weatherization installers and technicians.
