Wiki Blu.e: ISO 50001 – Energy management

Published on 15 June 2011 by the International Organization for Standardization, the ISO 50001 standard provides guidance for designing and setting up an energy management system. This standard is designed to help organisations in all business sectors conduct an ongoing drive to reduce their energy consumption. In a broader perspective, the ISO 50001 standard addresses the growing scarcity of energy sources, rising energy prices and measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

1. Procedure

The ISO 50001 standard is grounded on the continuous improvement approach. It lays down a set of requirements that will help organisations to:

  • Draw up a policy for more efficient energy use;
  • Set targets and objectives for implementing the policy;
  • Use data to better understand energy use and consumption, and make decisions accordingly;
  • Measure the results;
  • Review policy effectiveness;
  • Continuously improve energy management.

 

2. The key role of the EIS

As defined by the ISO 50001 standard, an Energy Management System (EMS) relies on the four steps of the PDCA process, i.e. Plan, Do, Check and Act. For best results, this continuous process requires a solid, dedicated information system that contains all of the energy-related information – and only that information – and distributes it to all of the energy stakeholders – and only to those stakeholders.

 

3. What you stand to gain

According to research published by the AFNOR group in December 2014, companies that implemented an energy management initiative cut their energy use by 10% the first year. Moreover, the results obtained were such that 94% of the companies polled reported a return on investment in under four years on measures introduced to achieve certification.
