With over five million square feet of floor area, Boise State facilities use a considerable amount of energy. The university is committed to continuously improving its stewardship of financial and environmental resources, and has joined a cohort of other organizations to develop an ISO 50001-based energy management system.
ISO 50001 is an international standard focused on implementing processes that prioritize energy efficiency and empowering organization stakeholders to use energy resources more effectively. The U.S. Department of Energy’s ISO 50001 Ready program provides organizations with the tools to develop and implement an ISO 50001-based energy management system through a series of workshops, mentoring and peer collaboration. The university will participate in this process over the next 10 months.
