Registration: 11:30am

Presentation: 12:00pm

The ISO 50001 Standard and a related program, Superior Energy Performance (SEP), are new tools designed to address the efficient management of energy.   They involve every level of a corporation to bring energy management to the next level.  Unlike previous ISO Standards, ISO 50001 is meant for more than just manufacturing companies.  ISO 50001 starts after the construction phase is completed.  The standards below are relevant in the design and construction phases.   

ASHRAE 189.1, ASHRAE ABEL, IECC, ASHRAE 90.1, ASHRAE AEDG are standards and guides which are design oriented and geared towards the construction phase of a building's life. In recent years, some have been codified to be included in state building codes.

This meeting will give a very brief overview of the ASHRAE and IECC standards.  There will be a deeper discussion of ISO 50001 and the SEP.

 Who Should Attend

All are welcome.  There will be networking opportunities before and after the presentation.  Attendees might include:

  • Energy end users such as building managers, energy managers, and owners that wish to learn about important new energy management tools
  • Manufacturers that want to learn of the new ISO standard and how it may apply to them
  • Sales persons and business developers that will need to answer their customers’ questions and inform their customers about ISO 50001 and the Superior Energy Performance Program
  • Energy Consultants and Energy Engineers that want to explore new job opportunities developing ISO 50001 audits and programs

 About ISO 50001

ISO 50001 is a standard to establish a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities or entire organizations to manage energy. The standard is designed to be implemented by manufacturing or service type organizations.  Targeting broad applicability across national economic sectors, it is estimated that the standard could influence up to 60% of the world’s energy use. The ISO 50001 Standard and a related program, Superior Energy Performance (SEP), are new management tools designed to promote and sustain continual energy management with a holistic systems approach rather than project based initiatives.   They involve every level of a corporation to bring energy management to the next level.  ISO 50001 was issued June 15, 2011 and the SEP is in the second year of a pilot phase

ISO 50001 promises to help your business:

  • Reduce energy related operational costs
  • Increase energy efficiency
  • Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability
  • Support energy conservation
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improve use of energy assets
  • Refine energy procurement practices
