Eenovators Careers

The Eenovators Internship Programme

There has been and continues to be a perennial challenge in the Energy Management sector, with regards to the lack of capacity to adequately provide energy auditing and management services, to the designated facilities that require to conduct energy audits and to generally meet the energy management needs in the country. The census of qualified and licensed energy practitioners are insufficient to satisfactorily cover the market, and provide the requisite services required to cover the energy needs of industry.

 

It is therefore imperative that immediate steps are taken to Increase the critical mass of qualified and licensed auditors by giving providing an avenue for candidates to comprehensively undertake and implement the obligatory five energy audits set as a requirement to become a licensed auditor.

 

As such Eenovators has put in place an energy management internship programme to serve this need and to provide the crucial experience required to meet this commitment. This programme also serves to bridge the gap between the university engineering curriculum and on the ground industry expectations for energy engineers with inadequate opportunities available or students to practice.

 

This structured internship programme for the energy engineering discipline that addresses the needs of graduates from technical institutions, university engineering programmes, and unlicensed engineers, serves to provide the much needed hands on practical experience that is not only beneficial for the candidates and ultimately the energy sector at large, but also to increase the skills available in the market with an aim of having highly skilled resources available for industry. The programme also serves as a knowledge transfer vehicle for which continuity and sustainability of high level practice within industry will be achieved.

Internship Program Curriculum

Focus areas include:

Key Focus Area Objectives
Energy Data Analysis

 

To understand different forms of energy data, input accurate energy data entry into energy analysis templates and carry out comprehensive analysis of energy data provided from different sites across industry.
Energy Site Work

 

To competently map out energy consumption logic for facilities and employ the use of various energy audit instruments on site. The interns will carry out audits in different sections of assigned facilities and a conduct retrieval and analysis of data from instruments used.

 

Technical Writing To develop end to end concise energy management reports including, audit, implementation, monitoring and other gap analysis and recommendation reports.
