US DoD gains energy savings from ISO 50001
The US Department of Defense (DoD) installations represent 284,000 buildings and more than two billion square feet of space, consuming 1% of the total energy expended in the United States. In order to pursue energy resiliency as a priority and seeks cost effective solutions to improve mission assurance, the DoD gained accredited certification to ISO 50001.
As a result, the department gained:
- Better analytical tools for energy management decisions
- Standardized and disciplined energy management practices that survive personnel changes
- Increased awareness and communication regarding energy management performance across the organization
- Energy cost savings.
