Certified Practitioners will provide assistance to facilities in assessing energy efficiency opportunities in various types of energy systems and conforming to the requirements of the ISO 50001 energy management system plus additional Superior Energy Performancecm (SEP) requirements. A company or facility may use the energy management standard or system assessment standards on their own without engaging a Certified Practitioner. However, using a qualified individual adds a level of assurance for the facility that the standards will be properly applied.
Two different types of ANSI-accredited Certified Practitioners will support plants in assessing energy efficiency opportunities:
- Certified Practitioners in Energy Management Systems will assist facilities in implementing the ISO 50001 energy management standard.
- Certified Systems Practitioners will assist facilities in the appropriate application of ASME system assessment standards*. Certification will be system-specific for compressed air, process heating, pumping, and steam systems.
Provide Third-Party Verification
SEP Lead Auditors and SEP Performance Verifiers will serve as third-party auditors to verify that an applicant meets the Superior Energy Performance requirements.
- SEP Lead Auditors will assess a manufacturing plant’s management system conformance to ISO 50001 and additional SEP requirements documented in ANSI/MSE 50021.
- SEP Performance Verifiers will assess a manufacturing plant’s conformance to the (1) measurement and verification protocols and (2) energy performance improvement levels defined by the SEP program.
