VESMA.COM has been an independent trainer on energy management for many years. Of particular interest to sustainability professionals is their “Energy efficiency A to Z” programme, which is designed as a wide-ranging introduction for those with no prior knowledge of energy technologies.

This course is delivered remotely to small groups over two half-days by the company’s director Vilnis Vesma, himself a former local-government energy manager. It is available for in-house groups and as a public event. Apart from that, Vilnis has particular expertise in the analysis of energy consumption data, and runs courses on that topic under the title ‘Energy monitoring and targeting’.
