S ustainable power generation and utilization has become a very critical global issue, especially in the backdrop of depleting fossil fuel reserves and global environmental impacts. With the sharp increase in demand for electricity in domestic as well as commercial and industrial sectors, Sri Lanka must seriously pay attention to the sustainable generation and use of energy to alleviate the unfavorable impacts. Many countries employ qualified personnel as Energy Managers and Energy Auditors to deal with energy-related problems in the organizations. Recognizing the importance of this sector and keeping with the international trend, Energy Auditing was recognized in Sri Lanka as a profession by the Government through a Gazette notification (No. 1715/12 July 20, 2011) published under the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA) Act No. 35 of 2007.
According to the gazette regulations clear career development paths for Energy Managers and Energy, Auditors have been established and SLSEA provides national accreditation for these two positions based on specific training undertaken and experience gained on energy management and auditing. This Study Program leading to the award of Master of Energy Management is expected to fill the gap that prevents many graduates who aspire to become professionals in the energy sector as energy managers and energy auditors, and supports to enhance the knowledge of those who are working in different capacities in the energy sector
