The information being collected remains necessary to ensure that DOE’s ISO 50001 programs continue to deliver energy benefits and value to program participants. SEP 50001 is an energy efficiency certification and recognition program for industrial facilities demonstrating energy management excellence with ISO 50001 and third-party verification of energy savings. 50001 Ready recognition is a self-attestation of the implementation of an ISO 50001 energy management system without the need for external audits. SEP 50001 builds on the ISO 50001 energy management system standard and provides a rigorous, internationally recognized business process for companies to continually improve their energy performance. The SEP thirdparty verification of energy performance improvement is unique in the marketplace and assists to differentiate PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35497 certified companies from their competitors. This request for information consists of a voluntary data collection process for SEP participation: To manage participation, track certification cycles, and relay the costs and benefits of SEP certification to industry. 50001 Ready collects a lesser amount of self-attested information to manage and track recognition cycles and to recognize the achievements of its participants. Four types of information are collected from SEP 50001’s primary participants: (1) Background data, including contact information and basic information about the facility’s experience with energy management— collected in the SEP 50001 Application Form; (2) Basic facility information about its energy use, energy consumption, and energy performance indicators—also collected in the SEP 50001 Application Form; (3) Information on energy performance improvement in certified facilities— collected in the SEP 50001 Energy Performance Improvement Report. 50001 Ready collects only a subset of the same types of information in categories (1), (2), and (3), and without the need for external audit. The program’s online system, the 50001 Ready Navigator, enables participants to submit this information. Background data will primarily be used to track basic information about SEP and 50001 Ready participants and identify opportunities to provide participants with technical assistance. Basic information about a facility’s energy use, energy consumption, and energy performance indicators will be used to administer each program. Information on energy performance improvement will be used by DOE to manage and track participation cycles, and to track the results of participating in SEP and 50001 Ready. Responses to the DOE’s Information Collection Request will be voluntary.
