Managing energy use in any facility is a team effort, and the 50001 Ready Navigator is here to help!

For users of DOE’s eGuide, you may have noticed that the eGuide was archived last week. DOE is excited to introduce the 50001 Ready Navigator as a new and improved resource for establishing a business culture of continual improvement based on the best practices of the ISO 50001 Energy Management System Standard.

In addition to a major upgrade to its user interface, the 50001 Ready Navigator offers significant enhancements in support of team collaboration, and provides improved support for DOE’s 50001 Ready recognition program and Superior Energy Performance (SEP) certification program. Like the eGuide, access to the Navigator remains completely free and publicly available.

What’s new in the 50001 Ready Navigator?

  • New and improved step-by-step guidance for users of all levels of decision-making and technical expertise
  • Over 120 improved and updated downloadable resources, including templates, case studies, and sample forms
  • Enhanced team notes and activity tracking functionality to facilitate collaboration
  • Ability to directly request 50001 Ready recognition for self-attesting to energy management best practices
  • Access to the 50001 Ready Help Desk for one-on-one guidance from experts at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
  • Modernized and more intuitive user interface
