AEMAS is the world’s first regional certification system for
energy managers and energy end-users. Funded by the European Union under the
Switch-Asia Programme, it is currently being implemented by the ASEAN Centre
for Energy in eight (8) ASEAN Member States, namely: Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos,
Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
The AEMAS certification procedures were designed after reviews
of existing environmental and energy management systems such as ISO 14000,
European EMAS scheme, US Malcolm Baldridge National Quality Award, UK’s Energy
Efficiency Accreditation Scheme, and Thailand’s Energy Management System. AEMAS
adds significant value to the existing energy management systems. Individuals
achieve Certified Energy Manager (CEM) certification after completing the
training and passing the theoretical test and can be elevated to Professional
Energy Manager (PEM) certification after reporting duly documented and verified
achievements in energy efficiency corporate policy implementation and actual
savings achieved. Companies attain 1-star certification upon adopting energy
efficiency corporate policy led by an AEMAS certified energy manager. 2-star
and/or 3-star certification is attained upon reporting actual energy savings,
which are verified by AEMAS-certified auditors.
This invention presents an
integrated online smart energy management system for energy consumer, energy
professionals and regulator based on the AEMAS certification. It performs energy performance monitoring, analysis and
most importantly documentation for the AEMAS certification. It is a complete
solution for businesses, which would like to implement energy management system
and obtain relevant certification.
