There are currently 737 DCs covered under the PAT scheme, which is expected to rise further in the subsequent cycles of PAT. This means that there is already a huge demand for trained and certified Energy Manager and Energy Auditor.

As per the provisions under the EC Act, Bureau of Energy Efficiency, Ministry of Power, Government of India, conducts an annual National level Certification Examination for Energy Managers and Energy Auditors. The 18th National Certification Examination for Energy Managers and Energy Auditors is being conducted on 23rd & 24th September, 2017 all over the country.
