Benefits of the Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program were highlighted in ClimateWire, July 23, 2014. The article recounts how SEP led one Nissan plant to invest in operational changes that are now saving 264,000 gigajoules annually—and how a General Dynamics plant saved $536,000 in the first year.
SEP is an energy management certification program that requires U.S. plants to meet the ISO 50001 energy management standard and verify the savings they achieve. DOE provides guidance and specialized software tools to help manufacturers implement their energy management systems effectively. DOE sponsors SEP in partnership with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) and U.S. Council for Energy-Efficient Manufacturing.
