Ms. McKane was nominated by the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO/TC 242 (on Energy Management) and the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO/TC 257 (General technical rules for determination of energy savings in renovation projects, industrial enterprises and regions) for her outstanding service to the US Technical Advisory Groups and to the standards activities related to energy.
Members of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Industrial Systems Team presented papers on industrial energy management at the 2013 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy-Efficiency in Industry in Niagara Falls, NY. These papers focus on key topics from LBNL’s ongoing research into policies and programs to improve the energy performance of industry, both in the US and internationally. The three papers are:
'Verifying Energy Improvement in Industrial Facilities: Meeting the Challenge' at the 2011 ACEEE Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Industry
A distinguished group of panelists discussed how to move measurement and verification of energy performance in industrial facilities from the current focus on discrete projects to a new approach to support continual improvement at the facility level.
The Measurement and Verification Protocol for the Superior Energy Performance Program can be found at the end of this article.
ISO 50001 provides organizations with an internationally recognized framework for efficiently managing and improving their energy performance. ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to continual improvement that supports energy performance improvement over time based on the best data available to the organization. Continual improvement of energy performance requires a comprehensive energy management system involving a variety of stakeholders within an organization. The standard does not prescribe minimum performance criteria, energy reductions, or targets, however, many countries, including the United States, are developing programs to recognize organizations that achieve specified energy performance improvement targets.
