Hawaii Energy has partnered with efficiency experts EEFG Inc. to bring a new certification training program and energy efficiency workshops to the state, including one this month in Kahului.
On Maui, a "financial analysis of energy efficiency projects" workshop will be held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center's Alex Higashi meeting room.
The Maui workshop is designed to cover several approaches to calculating a project's returns, its financial pros and cons and how to generate compelling capital budgeting requests, according to an announcement.
Participants do not need to attend all three workshops in order to receiving a training certificate, just for the topic they learn about, said Walter Enomoto, Hawaii Energy's Maui County program specialist.
The sessions should help those who want to increase sales of energy efficiency solutions and personnel, but must obtain project funding approval from within their organization.
Hawaii Energy is a conservation and energy efficiency program, except only for Hawaii, Honolulu and Maui counties. Hawaii Energy is offering a limited number of grants, which drop the cost significantly, for the certification training and workshops. Maui grant recipients can attend any of the workshops for $35, versus $495 per workshop for people who do not qualify for the special lower rate.

The workshops will be led by EEFG President Mark Jewell and are sponsored by Hawaii Energy, www.HawaiiEnergy.com.
