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.

It is expected that a project manager (not the Energy Manager) would be assigned for large capital projects.
  • Measurement and Verification Strategy – Work with Triovest to develop a strategy for the Measurement & Verification of energy-saving projects at a corporate level (i.e. not project level).
  • Energy Management Behaviour and Business Process Improvements – Work to create and foster a sustainable energy management culture at Triovest’s properties and provide an avenue for employees to recognize and report issues and ideas regarding energy conservation and efficiency.
  • Employee Awareness Program – Build upon existing efforts to implement an employee training and awareness program to promote energy conservation and communicate the energy efficiency initiatives undertaken.
  • Assistance to IESO Projects – Coordinate and assist with site inspections by the IESO from time to time of the various measures implemented at the sole discretion of the IESO. Collect relevant information regarding additional electrical energy use (equipment purchases, schedule changes, occupancy changes or construction). The Energy Manager is expected to familiarize himself/herself with and access initiatives under saveONenergy programs and other available relevant resources.
  • Reporting: Complete Quarterly Reports to IESO and Triovest management

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills.
  • A dedication to providing exceptional service, every day.
