Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional (CLEP®)
AEE’s Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional (CLEP™) program is designed to provide recognition for professionals who have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field of lighting efficiency. The designation CLEP identifies individuals who have demonstrated high levels of experience, competence, proficiency, and ethical fitness, bringing to their professional activities the full scope of knowledge requisite to the development and implementation of effective lighting efficiency solutions within the commercial, industrial, institutional and governmental market sectors. Lighting efficiency professionals understand a building’s lighting requirements based on the occupancy and use of a given space, whether the application is illuminating a new building or retrofitting existing buildings to the most current lighting technologies. They measure, verify, and evaluate lighting efficiency projects, including the human-factor implications, technologies, and financial incentives to compare savings against other energy efficiency projects and identify ROI.
