Schneider Electric now has five manufacturing facilities certified in the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Superior Energy Performance (SEP) program and ISO 50001. Two platinum level facilities – Smyrna, Tennessee and Seneca, South Carolina – have improved their energy performance by more than 15%. Three silver level plants – Lincoln, Nebraska; Lexington, Kentucky; and Cedar Rapids, Iowa – improved energy performance by more than 5%.
To qualify for SEP, all five Schneider facilities set up a robust energy management system, improved their energy performance, and had the results independently verified. And all five earned certification in the ISO 5001 standard for energy management systems as part of the SEP process.
Dennis Edwards, Schneider Electric’s Energy Manager North America, said: “We’ve found that Superior Energy Performance is a great way to drive down energy use and costs across the company. With each plant, it becomes easier to apply the SEP framework and generate real savings that persist over time”.
