Certification Program Overview

The U.S. Council for Energy-Efficient Manufacturing (U.S. CEEM) is positioning the U.S. industry as a global leader in energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions reduction, and guides the development of Superior Energy Performanceâ„¢ (SEP). As part of this effort, the Institute for Energy Management Professionals (IEnMP) was created. IEnMP is a non-profit organization, initially funded by the Department of Energy, existing to provide certifications to individuals in support of SEP. The certifications offered by IEnMP encompass the following areas:

Certified Practitioner in Energy Management Systems (CP EnMS)

Certified Practitioners in Energy Management Systems help organizations in conforming to the requirements of the ISO 50001 plus the additional SEP requirements. These practitioners will be facility personnel, consulting professionals, or service providers with the appropriate technical experience. This certification is currently offered for the industrial sector, and other sectors, such as commercial buildings and transportation will be added in the future. The CP EnMS certification is ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 accredited.

SEP Performance Verifier

SEP Performance Verifiers will assess a manufacturing plant's conformance to the (1) measurement and verification protocols and (2) energy performance improvement levels defined by the SEP program. This certification is currently offered for the industrial sector, and other sectors, such as commercial buildings and transportation will be added in the future.

SEP Lead Auditor

SEP Lead Auditors will assess an organization's management system conformance to ISO 50001 and additional SEP requirements. These additional requirements are documented in ANSI MSE 50021.
