EnMS Under China’s Top 10,000 Program

China’s mandatory energy conservation target-­‐setting policy for large energy users, known as the Top-­10,000 Program, was introduced in 2011. One of the key requirements laid out in the Program is the establishment of energy management systems. In November 2012, China’s government officially mandated provinces to implement energy management programs (EnMPs) targeting companies that are covered in the Top‐10,000 Program. Provincial energy conservation authorities are required to make plans to advance EnMS adoption in Top 10,000 enterprises in their respective jurisdictions and encourage Top‐10,000 Enterprises to either establish or improve their EnMSs for plants with existing EnMSs. The nationwide EnMP builds on the updated China’s energy management standard (GB/T 23331), which was revised in 2012 to be in line with the international ISO 50001 standard for energy management systems (EnMS), as well as on an EnMS certification pilot program initiated by the Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA) in selected enterprises and an EnMS implementation pilot in the Shandong Province with support of the Energy Foundation.
