ISO 50001

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.

Tools and resources are available to assist organizations as they embark on this rewarding pathway to energy savings, carbon reduction, improved competitiveness, and other benefits.

The main objective of the standard is to improve energy-related performance and energy efficiency continuously and to identify energy reduction opportunities. This systematic approach will help organizations to establish systems and processes.

Consistent energy management helps organizations to realize untapped energy efficiency potential. They will benefit from cost savings and make a significant contribution too environmental and climate protection, for example by the permanent reduction of CO2 emissions. The standard should alert employees and in particular the management level to the immediate and long-term energy management gains that can be made. The organization can discover potential savings and competitive advantages. Furthermore, a huge image boost for the organization can be created.

There are seven major components to ISO 50001:

1. General Requirements:
2. Management Responsibility
3. Energy Policy
4. Energy Action Plan
5. Implementation and Operation
6. Performance Audits
7. Management Review

Using energy efficiently helps organizations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change. ISO 50001 supports organizations in all sectors to use energy more efficiently, through the development of an energy management system.
