Organizations certified to ISO 50001 standard will elevate U.S. profile in clean energy
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) is taking part in a prestigious global awards program to recognize companies or organizations that use an ISO 50001 energy management system (EnMS) to save energy and reduce costs. The Energy Management Leadership Awards showcase global use of these proven systems and help attain national and global climate goals. The program is sponsored by the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM)—a group of forward-thinking energy ministers from around the world. The United States is an active member.
Any organization that holds a current, third-party-verified ISO 50001, including Superior Energy Performance® (SEP™), certificate is eligible to enter the competition. To enter the competition, each organization will need to submit a copy of their ISO 50001 certificate and a structured case study of their EnMS experience. An independent panel of experts will conduct the scoring.
Top entries will receive the prestigious CEM 2017 Award of Excellence for Energy Management. These winning organizations will be recognized next year during the eighth Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM8) meeting, which will be held in China and attended by energy ministers and corporate leaders from around the globe.
Beyond the Award of Excellence, each organization that submits a qualifying entry will receive an Energy Management Insight Award for helping to build global insight on the benefits of energy management systems. All accepted entries will also be published online to highlight the range of benefits achieved through the use of ISO 50001-certified energy management systems.
Entries are due January 24, 2017, though early entries are highly encouraged. Interested parties are encouraged to visit the CEM Energy Management Leadership Awards website to learn more about the award rules, entry format, scoring, and recognition.
All accepted entries will be published online to highlight the range of benefits achieved through the use of ISO 50001-certified energy management systems. Award winning entries from the inaugural 2016 awards program are featured on the CEM website and in the EWMG’s case study library, where case studies can be sorted by industry and country.
