    Link to energypedia only leads to the general log-in page and not to ” role & tasks of energy auditors and energy managers”. Searching for “energy auditors” or “energy managers” or “energy management” yields limited or no results.

    I really enjoy energy efficiency within the Agri-Food processes value chain.

    - Greenhouse farming
    - Food processing ( dairy production, drying fruit & vegetables, canned food etc..)

    Very interested material.

    This Energy Efficiency and Sustainability theme has really been illuminating. I have enjoyed the various definitions, and thorough explanation provided in the readers. Clearly, the theme has equipped me with more knowledge and strength. We (human) simply have to begin to change our mind-set so that we could be able play our part In a world so polluted with emissions, climate change concerns, thus doing our best by using EE products, reduce heat loss, etc thereby making our house energy in asction.

    Interesting case studies.
    I appreciate the economic-wide rebound approach in the EE evaluation. Very often we do not pay attention to that.

    I could not trace the GIZ info on Role and tasks of energy auditors

    energy efficiency really has great potential in reducing resource usage and costs. I however feel that little or no work is being done on energy auditing as it involves looking at energy losses and potential savings along amongst several steps of the value chain. So the big question is how do we come up with a comprehensive energy audit for the whole life cycle of a product?

    Thanks always for the practical examples, no doubt taking the concepts into practice through these cases is easier to learn!!

    I enjoy ed the readings on rebound effect of EE and Jevon’s Paradox.
