Incremental Implementation of Energy Management at Industrial Facilities
MetadataShow full item record
The essential elements of a sustainable energy management program at industrial facilities are defined in the ANSI/MSE 2000 Management System for Energy standard document. Although many organizations have expressed interest in improving their energy management practice by implementing the management system standard, most are intimidated by the perceived complexity and sweeping authority of the standard and elect not to pursue formal implementation. While the standard does require coordinated and concentrated effort to complete, several organizations currently using the ANSI/MSE 2000 management system have followed an incremental approach to implementation. The incremental approach can reduce the resources required to implement a workable system, yet still achieve measurable improvements. Successful approaches to incremental implementation of the standard are described, and implementation approaches compatible with different scale organizations are presented.
