This practical, hands-on reference is designed to serve as a guide for any organization in planning, developing, and implementing an optimally effective energy cost reduction and management program. The information presented is intended, first, to facilitate the achievement of energy reduction deployment (ERD) which includes top management, all employees and onsite contractors. Although ERD, implemented by itself, can indeed render significant energy reductions, the book then goes on to show you how to accomplish even greater savings by putting in place an energy centered management system (ECMS) which can identify and address additional critical sources of preventable energy waste. It also clarifies specific measures necessary to conform to the ISO 50001 energy management standard. The author has included a useful checklist, information on how to perform an internal audit or self-inspection, and tips on the best ways to create an overall energy awareness organizational culture.
