DEM created the Energy Management Institute (EMI) in partnership with the Building Performance Lab at the City University of New York and the Association of Energy Engineers. EMI offers energy management training programs for City employees to develop the skills necessary for the energy efficient operations and maintenance of municipal buildings..

Course registration is open to employees at City agencies and institutions where DCAS pays the energy bills only, and is targeted to building operators, engineers, and tradespeople.
