Advanced Energy Offers Free 50001 Ready Training Beginning in May

April 26, 2020

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) 50001 Ready program recognizes industrial, commercial and institutional facilities that attest to the implementation of an ISO 50001-based energy management system. The program is a self-paced, no-cost way for organizations to build a culture of structured energy improvement that leads to deeper and sustained savings without requiring external audits or certifications.

DOE's 50001 Ready Navigator is an online tool that provides step-by-step guidance to help organizations implement an energy management system. Facilities that complete all tasks in the 50001 Ready Navigator online tool can receive DOE recognition. Facilities completing the recognition program may seek ISO 50001 certification with a third-party auditor.

Advanced Energy is a 50001 Energy Management System Qualified Instructor and has guided multiple organizations to achieve their strategic energy management goals. In-person site visits are usually part of this process, but now remote, online opportunities are available.

Starting May 20, 2020, Advanced Energy will begin a free training program for North Carolina organizations interested in participating in 50001 Ready. The training will be 16 hours total, held in eight 2-hour sessions spaced throughout 2020 to give facilities time to work on tasks. Additional time is available between sessions for individual phone support.

If interested, click the registration link below and complete the form. Facilities must be located in North Carolina and commit to the entire process, with a goal of earning 50001 Ready recognition.
