Canada’s energy advisors advise homeowners, businesses, and organizations on energy efficiency and conservation.
The primary role of energy advisors is to help their clients reduce their energy consumption and costs by identifying areas where energy is being wasted and recommending solutions to improve energy efficiency. They may conduct energy assessments of buildings, review energy bills, and provide recommendations on upgrades to equipment, such as heating and cooling systems, lighting, and insulation.
Energy advisors may also provide education and outreach to their clients on energy efficiency practices and information on available incentives and rebates for energy-efficient upgrades.
To become an energy advisor in Canada, one must complete training and certification through a recognized program, such as Natural Resources Canada’s EnerGuide Rating System or the Canadian Home Builders’ Association’s Net Zero Energy Advisor program.
An Energy Advisor may perform several tests during an energy assessment of a building. The specific tests performed may vary depending on the type of building, its age, and its energy use. However, some standard tests that Energy Advisors may conduct include:
Once the testing is complete, the Energy Advisor will provide a report outlining their findings and recommendations for energy-efficient upgrades and improvements.
