OUR MISSION:

We create sustainable places that enhance communities and enrich relationships.

 

POSITION OVERVIEW:

The Energy Manager role is a newly created full-time role in the Greater Toronto Area. This role will have a principal focus on electricity conservation in Ontario and may also support conservation in other energy-use types (e.g. natural gas, steam, chilled water) and other geographies.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

As an Energy Manager, you will be responsible for:

  • Facility Benchmarking – Evaluate historical demand and energy consumption for each managed asset along with additional attributes like but not limited to: location, square footage, typical equipment, hours of operation, weather, and occupancy. This list can be used to identify high performers, as well as less energy-efficient sites for comparison, and identification of energy-saving projects in a prioritized manner.
  • Primary Assessment – Review existing energy-related technical assessments (e.g., energy audits, retrocommissioning assessments) and perform a high-level assessment, which may include a walk-through audit of a representative number of facilities to identify energy-saving opportunities in a prioritized manner, and to identify which systems will require more detailed evaluations.
  • Maintenance and Operating Schedules – Review and provide a description of the control systems, operating schedules, and maintenance practices representative of the Triovest’s typical properties to identify operational savings. Develop maintenance practices and programs to enhance energy efficiency. Examples include but are not limited to: reprogramming controls to shutdown equipment and lighting when not required, developing a checklist to ensure that all shutdown procedures are properly implemented and followed.
