Advanced Energy leads multiple 50001 Ready Cohorts each year, where organizations are offered free training, individual consulting and technical assistance to obtain 50001 Ready recognition. Facilities served by Duke Energy and located in North Carolina are eligible to participate in a Duke Energy sponsored cohort. We also lead federally sponsored DOE cohorts that are open to organizations across the country.
Cohorts are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The typical cohort has 6 to 10 organizations, and single-site and multisite organizations are welcome. When participating in a cohort, your organization is expected to commit staff and resources to attend the sessions and complete assignments. The cohort program is usually structured as follows:
- Eight webinar sessions
- 1-on-1 calls with each site between webinars for check-ins and assignment review
- Practical application of the 50001 Ready tasks and playbooks
- Assistance with application for 50001 Ready recognition
