Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) conducts research in collaboration with governments and industry to more effectively and productively use energy, both in the US and globally. We accomplish this through developing energy management, energy efficiency and demand management practices, standards, policies, analysis, and technologies.
Developing and analyzing standards, programs, workforce qualifications and implementation models for energy management business practices, especially ISO 50001 standard and Superior Energy PerformanceTM.
