Nevada Industry Excellence (formerly MAP) conducts comprehensive industrial energy assessments for companies and industries throughout Nevada with resultant energy efficiency recommendations that generate huge savings for companies and our environment. Nevada Industry Excellence has funding partners such as NV Energy and the U. S. Dept. of Energy and these grants help defray some of the costs of these training and assessment activities.
Nevada Industry Excellence offers a 12-workshop energy efficiency training and certification series for commercial and public building engineers, operators and their crews. Since 2005, over 300 participants have achieved certification and have created energy-saving project proposals with aggregate savings exceeding 200 trillion BTUs. Nevada Industry Excellence provides specific operational and energy efficiency training on topics such as fans, pumps, motors, compressed air systems, chillers, lighting, etc.
DOE Best Practices Workshops
BestPractices, under the DOE Industrial Technologies Program, works with U.S. industry to implement energy management practices in industrial plants. To meet the diverse needs of U.S. industry, BestPractices provides a number of resources for corporate executives, plant managers, technical staff, and the general public. We invite you to join the many U.S. companies that are saving energy and money and improving productivity right now. Nevada Industry Excellence is proud to be a partner in the DOE ITP BestPractices and is offering targeted workshops in Nevada to help Nevada Industry better manage its energy needs and reduce overall costs and consumption.
ISO 50001 Certification Assistance
ISO 50001 provides organizations with an internationally recognized framework for efficiently managing and improving their energy performance. The standard addresses the following:
- Energy use and consumption
- Measurement, documentation, and reporting of energy use and consumption
- Design and procurement practices for energy-using equipment, systems, and processes
- All variables affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization.
ISO 50001 is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to continual improvement, which supports energy performance improvement over time based on the best data available to the organization. Continual improvement of energy performance requires a comprehensive energy management system involving a variety of stakeholders within an organization. The standard does not prescribe minimum performance criteria, energy reductions, or targets.
