50001 Ready Navigator Playbook

The 50001 Ready Playbook is an optional resource to help you develop a 50001 Ready energy management system. Playbook files are available for download on this page and on each 50001 Ready Navigator task page under the “Playbook” tab.
Playbook

What is the Playbook?

The Playbook consists of 25 worksheets (Microsoft Word format), one for each 50001 Ready Navigator task, plus two data trackers (Microsoft Excel format) that function together as a workbook. All Playbook files are unlocked and can be fully customized for your own use.

How does it work?

Each worksheet can be used independently or together to create a living record of your organization’s energy management system.

Use of the Playbook is optional and is not required to receive 50001 Ready recognition from the U.S. Department of Energy.

You can store your Playbook files on your local computer system. The 50001 Ready Navigator does not accept upload of Playbook files to protect your confidential information.

Consider using the Playbook if any of these statements are true for you:

  • I am interested in creating a living repository of all of our organization’s efforts in implementing an energy management system.
  • I would like to take your organization’s progress and documentation offline or upload the information to an internally accessible location.
  • I want to learn more about a particular task and how to potentially meet its recommendations. Tip: Use just a few or all of these resources and in any particular order - Whatever works best for you.
  • I am looking for guidance, and additionally may want to modify the Playbook content to more closely fit the needs of our organization.
