Generate Energy Cost Savings
Identifying your organization’s energy waste and utilizing best practices to optimize your plant’s energy systems can significantly impact your company’s bottom line. GaMEP energy experts will help you and your team identify and prioritize areas for improvement that generate bottom-line cost savings. These team members, who were instrumental in developing the ISO 50001 energy management system standard, can set your company up for long-term success by helping you showcase real results, gain top-management buy-in on energy-related projects, and create a culture of continuous energy-performance improvement.
Facility-Level Energy Assessments
Utilizing the experience gained from conducting energy assessments at hundreds of facilities in Georgia and the U.S., GaMEP engineers will perform an energy assessment of your entire facility, identifying areas of improvement to save at least 10 percent in energy costs.

Energy Assessments for Small Manufacturers
Do you qualify for a no-cost, energy assessment through the Department of Energy’s Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) Program? If you are a Georgia manufacturer with an SIC code between 2000-3999, gross annual sales below $100 million, fewer than 500 employees at the plant site, annual energy bills more than $100,000 but less than $2.5 million, and have no professional in-house staff to perform the assessment, go to http://iacgeorgia.org/ to apply.
Incorporate ISO 50001 best practices into your small- to medium-sized manufacturing plant to build a culture of continual energy-performance improvement. 50001 Ready allows Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers to be more competitive in the marketplace and helps manufacturers interested in becoming suppliers be more attractive to OEMs. Download the 50001 Ready Flyer.
ISO 50001 Implementation
Learn to successfully implement an ISO 50001 energy management system at your plant to increase energy efficiency, reduce environmental impact, control costs, and enhance competitiveness. The implementation will be led by GaMEP team members who helped develop ISO 50001 and have successfully implemented this international best practice at dozens of companies around the world.

Southeast Energy Management Program
Improve your existing energy management system, become 50001 Ready, or prepare to certify to the ISO 50001 standard, by participating in the Southeast Energy Management Program. This year long cohort program, designed to help companies implement best practices in energy management, is being funded with a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP.) Get more information and apply for the 2018-2019 Cohort.
Integrated Management Systems
Do you have more than one management system in your plant? If so, by making minor modifications you can integrate your systems, reducing duplication of efforts and saving your company time and money. Download the Integrated Management Systems Flyer.
Large Energy Systems Assessments
Reduce or control your costs by 20 percent or more for energy systems such as compressed air, steam, process heating (ovens, dryers, etc.), large fans and pumps, and/or chilled water. Download the Large Energy Systems Assessment Flyer.
Energy Performance Metrics
Develop accurate performance indicators to gain a clear picture of what drives energy consumption within your facility. By correctly measuring your energy performance, you will be able to more accurately compare performance over time, predict future energy consumption based on operating changes, and verify savings from energy improvement projects. Download the Energy Performance Metrics Flyer.
Utilize the Lean tool, Value-Stream Mapping, to not only look at your productivity, material, and processes, but also to examine your energy and environmental waste to maximize savings within your plant. Download the Lean-Green Assessment Flyer.
