Congratulations to Jonathan Roberts and Stefan Ganev of TEG who each earned their Certified Energy Manager (CEM) certification! They trucked through a snowstorm to sit for the exam at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids in February. The Certified Energy Manager certification is utilized around the world and is a recognized standard of professional knowledge and achievement. Jonathan and Stefan now join our distinct team of Certified Energy Managers: Les Wilson, Chad Kloberdanz, and Eric Biederman.
Stefan Ganev graduated from The Technical University of Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1978 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Instrumentation Engineering. He has over 25 years experience in mechanical design and has extensive knowledge of the DOE-2 based modeling software. We are excited that Stefan has added the CEM to his list of qualifications and congratulate his achievement.
Jonathan Roberts received his B.S. in Industrial Engineering and recently finished his MBA. He is a certified Engineer In Training with the State of Iowa Engineering and Land Surveying Board and is proficient in solar photo voltaic technology, energy modeling, and energy analysis. He plans to sit for the PE this fall in between serving with Engineers Without Borders in El Salvador and assistant teaching for them in Panama! Congratulations Jonathan, add this one to the list.
The CEM certification was established in 1981 by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) and the objectives of the program include:
- Raising the professional standards of those engaged in energy management
- Improving the practice of energy management by encouraging energy managers in a continuing program of professional development
- Identifying persons with acceptable knowledge of the principles and practices of energy management related disciplines and laws governing and affecting energy managers through completing an examination and fulfilling prescribed standards of performance and conduct
- Awarding special recognition to those energy managers who have demonstrated a high level of competence and ethical fitness for energy management.
With more CEMs on staff at TEG, we can continue to expand our services and reach out to a wider client base. Please take the time to congratulate Jonathan and Stefan for their big accomplishment!
