Although ISO 50001 has only recently been released in the US, it has been available in other countries prior to now. A recent article highlights some of the more successful implementations of the Protocol. It should be noted that while ISO 50001 is an excellent strategy for the pursuit of energy management, it should be considered internally on a case by case basis.

Issues to consider include necessity of standardization in a particular supply chain, corporate policy/priority of efficiency efforts, payback periods for improvement projects, and desire to compete and participate in a global vs. a local economy.

Hey think about this.A common language set of terminology that world class players can use to measure themselfs gainst each other.No politics,religon,or hidden agenda.Just energy saving rules for big buisness.Once the results come in the politics behind building energy use studies will die off...Thank God.
