The Energy Management Working Group’s (EMWG’s) member governments—Australia, Canada, Chile, China (observer), Denmark (observer), the European Commission, Finland, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, and the United States—recognize the importance of the widespread implementation of energy management systems (EnMS).
The EMWG conducts activities that build the business case, design supportive programs and policies, provide technical support and resources, and engage the private sector—all of which enable governments to promote EnMS implementation. EWMG activities are selected and led by member governments represented by senior policy and program members and nominated technical experts. The U.S. Department of Energy serves as the Secretariat for the EMWG.
Each government is administering a program designed specifically to match its own needs. Together, the governments benefit from sharing knowledge, expertise, and best practices.
