Case Study: US DoD gains energy savings from ISO 50001

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.
