Energy Efficiency
Degree Program

Associate of Applied Science

The most expensive energy is energy that's wasted, so it's no surprise that an energy efficiency industry has evolved and professionals trained in this field can help save Americans a substantial amount of money each year.

Ecotech Institute's Energy Efficiency degree program is designed to produce graduates for a career helping plan and execute practical energy efficiency strategies for homeowners, businesses and the industrial sector.

Simply put, trained energy efficiency professionals help others save money by using less energy. The advice and assistance they provide might, for instance, result in a factory saving money by eliminating wasted energy in their manufacturing process.  In a residential setting, an energy efficiency consultant might recommend new windows and doors—calculating the energy-saving projections to justify the installation cost.

As part of the Energy Efficiency degree curriculum, students have the opportunity to earn the Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certification. BPI sets the national standards for energy efficiency retrofits and professional credentials. Many state-run energy efficiency and weatherization programs require BPI certifications.

"As more people seek ways to improve their energy efficiency, individuals with deep knowledge in renewable energy systems are becoming valuable,"
--Tiffany Burton, Program Director for Ecotech Institute's Energy Efficiency program.

Student John Wiseman reflects on why he chose Ecotech Institute and the Energy Efficiency program.
