GLRPPR Sector Resource: Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP)

Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP)

On July 20, 2010, at the Clean Energy Ministerial in Washington, D.C., government and corporate leaders announced a new public-private partnership, Global Superior Energy Performance (GSEP). The partnership is designed to cut energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in industrial and commercial facilities around the world. The announcement marks the commencement of a multi-country effort to create and harmonize nationally-accredited energy performance certification programs that encourage and reward strategic management of energy use and third-party verified energy reductions. This portion of the Clean Energy Ministerial web site describes the GSEP project, the certification process, links to pilot projects and links to more detailed information on the GSEP sectoral and cross-sectoral task groups.
