ISO 50001

Energy Management System

WHAT IS ISO 50001?

 

ISO 50001 Energy Management System certification, provides a framework for establishing energy management best practice to help organisations to improve their energy efficiency plus make a return on investment by implementing ISO 50001. The standard enables organisations to establish the systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption.

The ISO 50001 energy management standard is a proven framework for industrial facilities, commercial facilities, or entire organizations to manage energy—including all aspects of energy procurement and use. An energy management system establishes the structure and discipline to implement technical and management strategies that significantly cut energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions—and sustain those savings over time. Savings can come from no- to low-cost operational improvements.

Manufacturers, corporations, utilities, energy service companies, and other organizations are using ISO 50001 to reduce costs and carbon emissions. As of 2016, more than 23,000 sites worldwide achieved ISO 50001 certification. The growth of ISO 50001 is expected to accelerate as an increasing number of companies integrate ISO 50001 into their corporate sustainability strategies and supplier requirements.

BENEFITS OF ISO 50001 CERTIFICATION?

An energy management system involves implementing a systematic approach to energy efficiency and is superior to ad hoc or traditional project-based approaches to improving energy performance. Typically, energy management systems combine best practices in project management, energy monitoring, and energy awareness along with an energy policy that governs an organization’s approach towards energy use and performance. This benefits an organization by enabling significant energy savings that are persistent since the organization’s personnel must continually monitor energy use and resolve anomalies or incidents that cause energy waste. Organizations that decide to adopt ISO 50001 will develop a special type of energy management system (EnMS) that not only yields these benefits but also generates additional gains for the organization. In the relatively short time since its publication, ISO 50001 has become the internationally recognized standard for implementing a strategic and systematic energy management system with proven energy and energy cost savings. A list of the benefits of ISO 50001 includes:

  1. A significant improvement of the energy performance level from an initial energy baseline.

  2. A systematic approach (plan-do-check and act) that leads to continuous energy efficiency improvement. ISO 50001 enables organizations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy

  • Fix energy efficiency targets and objectives to meet the policy

  • Use data to better understand and make decisions concerning energy use and consumption

  • Measure the results of energy efficiency improvements

  • Review the effectiveness of the energy policy

  • Continually improve energy management

  • ISO 50001 supports the development of an energy policy and contributes to the structure of an energy plan to achieve targets.

  • ISO 50001 facilitates engagement (commitment and agreement) of management and has a positive contribution towards the energy targets.

  • An ISO 50001-based EnMS creates awareness and a commitment about energy (i.e. consumption, use, efficiency, renewable sources) within the organization.

  • ISO 50001 improves the ability of organizations to manage energy risks concerning possible impacts in an efficient and effective way.

  • ISO 50001 strengthens the competitiveness of organizations and reduces their vulnerability with respect to energy price fluctuation and availability of energy.

  • ISO 50001 allows the establishment of a benchmarking process.

  • An ISO 50001-based EnMS allows organizations to gain credible external visibility of energy saving actions.

  • An ISO 50001-based EnMS provides a better understanding between predictable energy demand and supply.

  • An ISO50001-based EnMS reduces energy costs and improves profitability.
