An initiative was launched in 2010 by the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) and International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation (IPEEC) to accelerate broad use of energy management systems (EnMS) in industry and commercial buildings worldwide. As a result the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) was established to create wide adoption of these systems in order to deliver energy, economic, and sustainability benefits to companies, communities, and countries around the world.
Through the Energy Management Working Group (EMWG), government officials worldwide share best practices and leverage their collective knowledge and experience to create high-impact national programs that accelerate the use of energy management systems in industry and commercial buildings. For more information, please visit the Clean Energy Ministerial.
Industrial facilities and commercial buildings account for almost 30 percent and 9 percent of global energy end use, respectively. By changing how energy is managed, facilities can achieve significant energy efficiency, conserving 10 percent to 40 percent of energy.
The Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) is working to accelerate energy efficiency improvements throughout industrial facilities and large buildings and to significantly cut global energy use.
