Introducing 50001 Ready
The U.S. Department of Energy’s 50001 Ready program is a no-cost approach to guide industrial, commercial and institutional energy users through the process of establishing an energy management system and ensuring continuous improvement in the efficient use of energy in a facility.
Based on the ISO 50001 standard, 50001 Ready allows facilities to be recognized as “50001 Ready” by the U.S. Department of Energy and can also prepare a facility for achieving ISO 50001 certification if it chooses to do so.
What Makes a Good 50001 Ready Candidate Organization?
Any medium or large energy user that is committed, from the top down, to managing or reducing their energy use. Examples include commercial (hospitality, retail, property managers), industrial, municipal (local governments, water/wastewater facilities) or institutional (hospitals, universities, schools) energy users.
