Unlock Your Potential With Energy Advisor Training

Energy Advisors enjoy a range of benefits that come with this career choice. It’s well-paid, and in demand, you can be your boss, and have the freedom to choose when, where, and how much you earn. Another benefit? Energy Advisors help support the global transition to a net-zero emissions future and learn transferable skills for the growing clean energy sector.

 

With Canada’s own mandate of a net-zero future by 2050, Registered Energy Advisors are now in high demand because Energy Audits conducted by Energy Advisors are required to apply for many government and utility energy efficiency rebate and loan programs (such as the Canada Greener Homes Initiative or Enbridge Home Efficiency Rebate Plus Program).

 

What Are Energy Advisors?

 

Energy Advisors are licensed individuals, certified by Natural Resources Canada, to conduct Home Energy Audits in Canada following the EnerGuide Rating System. The EnerGuide Rating System is nationally recognized as the premier way of providing customized energy performance information to homeowners.

 

Through an Energy Audit, Energy Advisors evaluate HVAC systems, insulation, windows, doors and other building components and produce customized energy audit reports with recommendations on saving energy, improving comfort, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

 

A Licensed Energy Advisor can also provide homeowners with information on available energy efficiency rebates and loans, how to apply for them, and how it helps offset the upfront costs of home energy retrofits.
