Having general knowledge of energy conservation and renewable energy is helpful in my role. I am not expected to conduct energy audits but do contract them to be conducted and need to be able to read and understand them. I work for a public sector organization in BC who is responsible to submitting our GHG production via the Carbon Neutral Government. Energy Conservation is part of my role via looking for ways to reduce our GHG output through energy efficiency or conservation. Having knowledge of these principles and practices are not a written part of my job description, but it is understood that I have them to apply none-the-less.
