The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection invites industries, businesses, utilities and local government to one of several free introductory workshops around the state on the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 50001, a program designed to promote energy efficiency and reduce operating costs for a variety of organizations.
ISO 50001 is the new energy management system standard designed to help organizations improve energy efficiency, make better use of energy-consuming assets, evaluate implementation of energy-efficient technology, reduce operating costs and improve their organizations’ bottom lines. Attendees will learn more about the concept of energy management systems and the benefits of developing and implementing one for their organization.
The free ISO 50001 workshops are being offered as part of DEP’s state energy plan initiatives through a grant provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Energy. All workshop details can be found at http://iso50001.eventbrite.com. Those who plan to attend should register by visiting the website or by calling (814) 332-6681.
