Two case studies published by the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) highlight new energy management systems deployed by two North American industrial plants. These latest entries in the growing EMWG series explain how a Canadian plant, Chrysler Group LLC, and a U.S. plant, Cummins, Inc., deployed ISO 50001-compliant systems to manage energy more efficiently while boosting competitiveness.

Denmark is proud to announce our partnership in the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Energy Management Working Group and Energy Management Campaign, which seek to accelerate broad and effective use of energy management systems in industry and commercial buildings worldwide. This step continues a history of Danish leadership in energy management.
If we’re going to solve the challenge of climate change, we need to make a rapid shift to clean energy. That’s why the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) was launched in 2010. At this year’s seventh annual Clean Energy Ministerial meeting, CEM7, energy ministers and business leaders from more than 25 countries will tackle a number of challenges, such as reaching the clean energy goals outlined in the COP21 Paris Climate Agreement. But the CEM is more than just a meeting. It’s also a collection of groundbreaking campaigns and initiatives that provide people around the world with the tools they need to join the clean energy revolution. This blog lists 10 ways that the CEM is advancing clean energy worldwide.
Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results.
