Much of the energy efficiency in existing facilities can be achieved through changes in how energy is managed, rather than through installation of new technologies
Effective energy management also provides a context for management to assess the applicability of new technologies
Energy management requires an organization tocomprehensively examine its energy use and consumptionand to develop a framework tosustain the change
Scope of an energy management system
U.S. DOE Efforts to Support Energy Management
Requires organization to establish a baseline, metrics, energy management team, and system—enabling systematicachievement of continuousimprovement in energy performance.
New ISO 50001 Standard
ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard
ISO 50001 provides a framework for industrial and commercial facilities and organizations to manage their energy use.
Addresses some practical realities:
Energy efficiency is not a core business of most organizations.
Personnel and business priorities change over time.
As a result, energy efficiency improvements may not be sustained.
ISO 50001 prepares an organization to:
Manage future organizational changes in an energy-efficient manner, while preserving profitability/effective operations
Evaluate what works for the organization based on hard data and build on it
Provide a structure and framework for communicating results both internally and externally
Integrate an energy management system into existing management programs
Typical features include:
ISO FDIS 50001
A market-based, ANSI/ANAB-accredited certification program that provides industrial and commercial facilities with a roadmap for achieving continual improvement in energy efficiency while boosting competitiveness.
Superior Energy Performance for industry will be launched in the U.S. in 2012.
Use ISO 50001 standard as foundational tool for energy management
Establish a tiered program that provides an entry point for companies at all levels of experience with energy management
Create a verified recordof energy performance improvement.
Potentially create value for corporate energy savings and carbon reductions in utility, state, regional, national, and international trading marketsSuperior Energy Performance Strategy
Superior Energy Performance
Single facility ISO 50001 conformance with validated energy performance improvement
ISO 50001 is a foundational tool that any organization can use to manage energy.
The two-tiered approach accommodates:
Maturity of facility’s energy management program
Level of external validation desired
Two Program Tiers
Partner Self Declaration
Method of Verifying Results

Resources to Help Facilities Prepare for Certification
Standards & Protocols:
Energy Management Standard

Measurement & Verification
SEP Lead Auditors
SEP Performance Verifiers
Assessment standards for specific energy systems provide immediate opportunities for energy performance improvement in many facilities. Use of the standards is not required for certification but will help plants define a pathway for achieving energy savings.
Drives strategy through U.S. Council for Energy Efficient Manufacturing
Pilots elements of Superior Energy Performance prior to program launch
Adopts the Superior Energy Performance program by getting plants certified to ANSI/ANAB-accredited Superior Energy Performance program
Facilitates industry collaboration to develop Superior Energy Performance program: fund program development activities (e.g., standards development, pilot projects)
Cost shares Superior Energy Performance program start-up
Leverages Superior Energy Performance program to deploy federal energy programs (e.g., Save Energy Now LEADER)

Benefits in the Industrial and Commercial Energy Efficiency Market
2009: Northwest region
2010: Southeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions
2011: California, Colorado, and Texas (second round) and Northwest region
DOE’s Industrial Technologies Program is conducting State/Regional Energy Management Demonstration Projects. ITP has funded 23 state awards starting in 2009 to help industry save energy.
The state or region identifies an appropriate demonstration plant based on provided guidelines
Facility and consultants receive three face-to-face training sessions
Consultants receive monthly training (15-month implementation schedule)
Consultants coach facility to implement energy management system in conformance with ISO 50001
Facility and consultants hold quarterly review with facility management and Energy Management Demo team lead
Facility applies for Superior Energy Performance as early as 18 months after initial training.Demonstration Approach

GSEP is conceived as an international network of national government agencies, national-level certification programs, and other public/private sector organizations that will catalyze continuous energy performance improvements in commercial buildings and industrial facilities of all performance levels.
The GSEP partnership includes Canada, the European Commission, France, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, and the United States.
GSEP was announced in July 2010 at the Clean Energy Ministerial, which convened 25 energy ministers from 20 countries and the European Commission.
Clean Energy Ministerial provided a forum for like-minded countries to take specific steps forward to promote clean energy technologies.
(Lead: Japan (P))
The Certification Working Group is developing a network of coordinated, national‐level certification programs to encourage public, educational, and industrial facilities and commercial buildings to pursue continuous improvements in energy efficiency. The GSEP certification process will recognize facilities that meet three main criteria:
(1) adoption of an energy management system that conforms with the forthcoming ISO 50001 standard,
(2) achievement of a designated minimum rate of energy performance improvement and
(3) receipt of third‐party validation of energy performance improvementand conformance to ISO 50001.
