[1] The Institute for Energy Management Professionals (IEnMP) was a provider of professional credentialing services in support of SEP 50001 and energy management systems until August 1, 2021. IEnMP transferred these credentials to AEE. The SEP 50001 program issued an Interpretation regarding the impacts of the transition of the energy management credentials from IEnMP to AEE. SEP 50001 will continue recognizing valid IEnMP certificates until their expiration dates. Read the DOE announcement to learn more about the transference.
