The ISO 50001 energy management standard is a proven international framework for industrial and commercial facilities, to manage all aspects of their energy footprint—including procurement and use. Similar in nature to the ISO 9000 Quality Standard and the ISO 14000 Environmental Standard, more than 7,300 sites worldwide had achieved
ISO 50001 certification by May 2014. The growth of ISO 50001 is expected to accelerate as an increasing number of companies integrate its principles into their overall corporate strategies.

Superior Energy Performance™ (SEP) is the US DOE’s energy management system built on the ISO 50001 framework. Industrial facilities adopting SEP are reducing their energy costs by 10% within 18 months of achieving certification to the ISO 50001/SEP standards. Facilities that pursue certification to ISO/SEP achieve an attractive return on investment while enhancing their sustainability. This conclusion is based on detailed accounts from US manufacturers that have already implemented ISO 50001 and SEP.

The ½-day seminar will introduce the participants to both ISO50001 and SEP with particular emphasis on the business case for considering making these systems part of their corporate strategies. In addition, the Ohio Office of Energy will describe the financial assistance programs available to manufacturers.
