The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is pleased to announce the expansion of the ISO 50001/Superior Energy Performance® (SEP) training network. Multiple trainers are now available to provide in-house training for organizations. The instructors are not only Certified Practitioners in Energy Management Systems (CP EnMS) but also experts in ISO 50001 and SEP methodology.

ISO 50001 and SEP implementation is on the rise in industrial and commercial facilities, and the augmented instructor network will help meet the training needs of companies and the energy efficiency program administrators that serve them. The trainers lead staff through implementation and certification preparation using the DOE curriculum—a tried-and-tested method used by leading businesses that have successfully achieved ISO 50001 and SEP certification. Formal training typically includes three 2-day in-person sessions and training webinars, but the program can be customized to meet an organization’s specific needs.

Organizations are encouraged to build their in-house capacity through the specialized coaching of an ISO 50001/SEP Trainer. Contact information is listed on the Institute for Energy Management Professionals (IEnMP) website. Learn more about tools and expertise for ISO 50001 and SEP.

The DOE-administered Superior Energy Performance® program provides third party verification of energy performance improvement as part of meeting ISO 50001 requirements. Members of the U.S. Council for Energy Efficient Manufacturing, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board developed SEP as a transparent system for certifying sustained improvements in energy performance and management practices.
