Energy Efficiency Opportunities (EEO) Assessor Registration

The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) administers the EEO Assessor certification scheme to certify qualified professionals as EEO Assessors to carry out EEOAs. EEO Assessors are expected to be familiar with the industrial environment and the flows of energy through industrial processes. They would be able to combine their understanding of specific industrial processes or systems with energy management expertise, to lead detailed energy assessments on these systems. In addition, they should be able to identify energy efficiency opportunities as a follow-up from the energy assessment, and recommend improvement measures whose results can be measured and verified.

IES EEO Assessor Registry certifies and registers two categories of EEO Assessors: In-house EEO Assessors and Independent EEO Assessors. In-house Assessors are employees nominated by their company’s senior management, and can only carry out EEOA for their company. Independent Assessors can be engaged by companies regulated under the ECA to carry out EEOAs in their areas of expertise. The EEO Assessor register on this website will facilitate companies to find a suitable Independent Assessor for their needs. A company may also fulfil the EEOA requirement with both an In-house Assessor AND an Independent Assessor.

A person applying for registration as EEO Assessor must hold an engineering degree or an equivalent academic qualification acceptable by the Registry Committee and is expected to have acquired specified competence and experience in energy assessments. In addition, the applicant should have a relevant professional qualification with local or foreign registration bodies. Applicants who meet the requirements will be shortlisted to attend a professional interview.

For companies intending to appoint In-house Assessors, suitable employees for nomination would be those who are registered Singapore Certified Energy Managers (SCEM), Professional Engineers (PE) or Chartered Engineers with relevant competency, knowledge and experience in carrying out Level III Energy Audits. In the case that the company does not have suitable employees locally, arrangements could be made for an internal transfer of overseas-based experts to be certified as In-house overseas-based Assessors. Ideally, in the long run, there should be a transfer of knowledge and expertise to a locally-based employee such that the company has an In-house Assessor.

EEO Assessor applicants who wish to register with IES as Chartered Engineer in Energy Sector may do so without having to pay additional fees.
