50001 Ready is a no cost, self-guided approach to tracking and managing energy use and improving
energy efficiency in your facility, campus, or base. Developed by the U.S. Department of Energy, 50001 Ready is designed to complement and help satisfy a federal facility’s or federal agency’s energy-related requirements. Many agencies will find that they are already doing many of the 50001 Ready steps. This workshop will discuss the benefits of an ISO 50001 energy management system standard, which 50001 Ready is built upon. Additionally, it will introduce the 50001 Ready Navigator tool and give hands-on instruction to kick-start your facility’s adoption of 50001 Ready.
