5 Schneider Factories Earn Superior Energy Performance

October 3, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Schneider energy manageSchneider Electric now has five manufacturing facilities certified in the US Department of Energy’s Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program and ISO 50001. Two Platinum level facilities – Smyrna, Tenn., and Seneca, SC – improved their energy performance by more than 15 percent. Three Silver level plants – Lincoln, Neb.; Lexington, Ky.; and Cedar Rapids, Iowa – improved energy performance by more than 5 percent.

To qualify for SEP, all five Schneider Electric facilities set up energy management systems, improved their energy performance, and had the results independently verified. And all five earned certification in the ISO 50001 standard for energy management systems as part of the SEP process.

Schneider Electric is a charter member of the Industrial SEP Accelerator program, which is a new part of DOE’s Better Buildings Initiative.

Superior Energy Performance is a DOE-administered certification program that provides guidance, tools, and protocols for any facilities that wish to gain deeper, more sustained savings from ISO 50001. SEP also complements and supports the industrial part of DOE’s Better Buildings Initiative by verifying facility-level energy performance improvements and savings achieved by participants in the Better Buildings, Better Plants program.

  1. This is great news from Schneider. Other companies could benefit from following Schneider’s lead and also use automated utility billing data to increase visibility into their energy management.
