The Energy Management Working Group (EMWG) seeks to accelerate broad use of energy management systems (EnMS) in industry and commercial buildings worldwide. Wide adoption of these systems will deliver energy, economic, and sustainability benefits to companies, communities, and countries around the world.
The EMWG’s member governments leverage their resources and take collective action to strengthen national and international efforts to make EnMS adoption easier around the globe. The EMWG also engages private industry, non-government organizations (NGOs), standards and accreditation bodies, and regional energy efficiency programs to combine strengths and support cohesive national and regional energy and climate strategies. Partnerships with organizations such as ISO and UNIDO also strengthen the EMWG’s focus on quality implementation of EnMS and ISO 50001, the international energy management standard. By sharing their knowledge, expertise, and experience, the EMWG and its partners:
Build the Business Case: Make the private sector aware of the business case for energy management and its value in maintaining competitiveness.
Energy Management Leadership Awards

The EMWG engages in active peer sharing on strategies, experiences, and best practices to promote energy management. Through collective action, these governments individually:
Learn from each other
Strengthen and compile implementation data
Access proven tools and resources
Advance domestic workforce training and credentialing
Accelerate contributions to national goals for energy, climate, and competitiveness
These actions collectively enable EMWG members, private sector partners, and supporting organizations to identify actions and commitments to promote EnMS
