Presented online in a series of two live 2-hour time modules, this seminar is designed to provide you with an understanding of ISO 50001, and how best to reduce energy consumption utilizing the program's guidelines.
environmental issues, and could also optionally include energy management. Then in June of 2011, ISO published its separate Energy Standard 50001, which provides another accepted ISO methodology aimed toward systematic energy reduction. However, unlike ISO 14001, ISO 50001 strictly addresses energy management. While structured similarly to 14001, ISO 50001 also has many differences and added improvements for those seeking optimally effective energy management.
If your team is already familiar with ISO systems through quality programs like ISO 9001 or 14001, going the next step with ISO 50001 can be relatively easy once you know its specifics. Even without prior ISO experience, many organizations are realizing that ISO 50001 is a fairly easy way to ensure proper energy systems management and achieve energy reduction, while at the same time improving community or corporate image.
This course will review the genesis and specifics of ISO 50001. The instructor will then describe how to best address energy reduction using this standard, with a great many examples provided for its specific implementation. Also examined will be the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program, which incorporates as one element ISO 50001, as well as details on how to achieve this DOE SEP designation.
You will leave this session with a much clearer understanding of what the ISO standard encompasses, and how to apply/implement this to meet, and likely surpass, your specific energy reduction desires or needs.
You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.
AIA Learning Units Eligible
This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.
The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.
