The ISO 50001 energy management standard is a proven framework for industrial facilities, commercial facilities, or entire organizations to manage energy procurement and use. ISO 50001 helps organizations establish the structure and discipline to implement and document technical and management strategies that significantly cut energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions — and sustain those savings over time.
Superior Energy Performance® (SEPTM)
The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) SEP program certifies industrial facilities that implement a data-driven energy management system that meets or exceeds the ISO 50001 standard and can achieve documented improved energy performance. An independent third party audits each facility to verify achievements and qualify it for recognition at the Silver, Gold, or Platinum level, based on performance. When implemented correctly, SEP certification drives deeper sustained savings than ISO 50001 implementation alone.
