ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) plan to release a new ISO 50001 standard for energy management in the U.S. by the end of 2011. It states that ISO 50001 is one of the main elements of the Superior Energy Performance (SEP), a program developed by the U.S. Council for Energy-Efficient Manufacturing (U.S. CEEM). It adds that U.S. CEEM's goal is to make the U.S industry a global leader in energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reduction.
