As an AEM Intern, I have instant gratifications that the work I am doing is making a difference. This practical energy management program using technology and communication really works!

- Roger, AEM Intern

This unique internship goes beyond being an excellent addition to one’s college resume, for it enables the student to avoid menial tasks that are associated with other internships open to high school students, and instead promotes an actual job simulated workplace where students contribute just as much as other employees in the company.

- Nishi, AEM Intern

AEM is a great opportunity for getting community service hours while also making a real impact by saving energy on a large scale. It’s also a great opportunity to gain real world experience by having a real paying job. I get treated like an employee with real responsibilities. It’s fantastic to get involved in an area that is so interesting—saving energy by changing behaviors—while helping the community.

- Pranay, AEM Intern

How does the program work?

The program begins with the AEM Bootcamp, a summer training program from Monday, June 26 - July 28. This will require 8-12 hours per week as you develop core energy management skills.

After completion you will then become a valued member of New Energy Technology (NET)’s data coaching team, delivering energy management and conservation services to multiple clients. You will work remotely with these clients using online software, which will also allow you a flexible work schedule.

Most facility operators are busy onsite, quickly bouncing from one task to the next. They don’t always have the time required to analyze how their facility is using energy. That’s where you and your new NET team members come in. You make identifying and eliminating energy waste easy, simple and fun for the facility operators and occupants.

Your clients range from retail store managers, school district energy managers, to school principals and custodians. You and your NET team provide weekly performance reports and, when appropriate, help create action plans to eliminate energy waste.

"Attending the ENERGY STAR Awards Banquet in Washington, DC was very inspiring. We have so much respect for the ENERGY STAR Partners like JCPenney, Kenton County School District and Gresham-Barlow School District, who are working so hard to reduce energy consumption. It was an honor to meet the leaders of ENERGY STAR like Jean Lupinacci (Chief, ENERGY STAR Commercial and Industrial Branch), Gina McCarthy (Administrator of EPA) and Katy Hatcher (Director of Education) to experience the enthusiasm of so many partners coming together to celebrate their energy-saving accomplishments over the past year."
