ISO 50001 - Energy Management System
ISO 50001:2011, Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, is a voluntary International Standard developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization). ISO 50001 gives organizations the requirements for energy management systems (EnMS).
Targeting broad applicability across national economic sectors, it is estimated that the standard could influence up to 60 % of the world's energy use.
How would you continuously improve energy efficiency?
ISO 50001 energy management standard identifies requirements for an organization to establish, implement, sustain and improve an Energy Management System (EnMS), this enables the organization to take a deliberate approach to attaining continual improvement of energy performance.
This new standard will establish an international structure to help manage the energy supply, uses and intake of industrial, commercial, or institutional organizations, which includes measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for energy using equipment, systems and processes. ISO 50001 energy management standard is applicable to all aspects impacting energy use, and this can be monitored and influenced by an organization.
Having a certification against BS EN 16001 will assist to adopt ISO 50001 faster
ISO 50001 – It's Key Benefits
- Enables organizations to establish the systems and processes required to improve energy commandment, which includes energy efficiency, use, consumption and intensity.
- Reductions in energy cost, GHG emissions and other environmental impacts, through the systematic management of energy;
- Demonstrate that the organization implemented sustainable energy management systems, completed a baseline of energy use, and focused on continuously improve their energy vividness
