Gain access to GEMS. Gain skills.
GEMS is the amazing cloud-based tool used by GIC volunteers to conduct energy assessments. It’s an easy-to-use survey tool that prompts the volunteer with simple yes/no questions about ways the business is using energy and water and then automatically compiles a report with recommendations and savings estimates for the business owner.
No prior knowledge or experience is necessary, so you get to learn by doing. Sign up below to gain access and complete our virtual training on how to conduct an energy assessment using GEMS.
