National Programme for Energy Management Systems

Last updated: 5 November 2017
In 2015, the National Commission for the Efficient Use of Energy (CONUEE) started a national programme to promote the adoption of energy management systems (PRONASGEN). PRONASGEn main objective is to promote the improvement of energy performance among energy users through the implementation of energy management systems (EMSs), establishing technical and management measures to raise competitiveness.
In order to achieve this objective, CONUEE has taken the initiative to coordinate the support offered by the following international cooperation agencies/bodies: the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ), the Danish Energy Agency, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the Commission for Environmental Cooperation of North America (CEC), the US Department of Energy (USDOE), the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), and the National Metrology Institute of Germany (PTB).
The programme, initially designed for large energy users, has expanded to include small and medium-sized enterprises, refineries and public buildings.
PRONASGEN promotes uptake of EMSs in several ways:

Through establishment and promotion of learning energy efficiency networks, Redes de Aprendizaje para la Implementación de Sistemas de Gestión de Energì a -RdA-SGEn.

By promulgating voluntary standards based on the ISO 50001 standard, which in 2011 was adopted as a national standard (NMX-J-SAA-50001-ANCE-IMNC-2011).

Through voluntary agreements with industry, who are required to perform energy audits and encouraged to adopt EMSs under the Energy Transition Law of 2015.
