Paper Highlights EMWG Efforts to Build Workforce Capacity for ISO 50001 Certification Audits

Paper presented at ACEEE 2015 Summer Study

A new paper prepared by the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) describes the EMWG’s efforts to build workforce capacity for ISO 50001 certification audits through a new certification program for ISO 50001 Lead Auditors. The program will help fill a gap in existing credentialing and training for ISO 50001 certification auditors.

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results.

Motors are everywhere and efficient – but they can be even better

Material and technological breakthroughs are improving the energy efficiencies of induction and other electric motors by changing how motors work and are controlled. Continued international collaboration and open dialogue, such as that carried out through the SEAD initiative, will help to further shrink motors’ share of energy consumption over the years to come.
