Aimee McKane is a Deputy Group Leader of the High Tech and Industrial Systems Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with more than 25 years of experience in commercial and industrial energy efficiency. Ms. McKane works with the US Department of Energy (USDOE) on several initiatives, including developing Superior Energy Performance, a program to certify industrial plants and commercial buildings for energy efficiency, which includes conformance to ISO 50001- Energy Management Systems. She also has collaborated extensively with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) on the design and implementation of industrial projects in China, Southeast Asia, and South Africa to promote energy management and system energy efficiency. A 2007 issues paper Ms. McKane prepared for UNIDO became the impetus for ISO 50001.

Ms. McKane represents the US on the ISO Strategic Advisory Group for Energy and as the Chair of the Technical Advisory Group for the ISO TC 242 — responsible for the development of ISO 50001: Energy management systems and related standards.

She also leads the Demand Response Research Center’s Industrial, Agriculture, and Water program, researching the relationship between industrial energy efficiency, load management, and demand response.

This publications database is an ongoing project, and not all Division publications are represented here yet.
