Team Lead for Energy and Environment, PennTAP
Is your company interested in incorporating energy management best practices that will lead to sustained savings, continual energy performance improvement, and controlled costs? ISO 50001, the newly developed international standard for energy management, will enable your company to more effectively use and manage energy and turn energy savings into sustainable gains.
What is ISO 50001?
ISO 50001 is an energy management system based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. ISO 50001 provides organizations with a framework for efficiently managing and improving their energy performance. The standard addresses the following:
Energy use and consumption
Measurement, documentation, and reporting of energy use and consumption
Objectives, Targets and Action plans aimed at improving energy performance
Design and procurement practices for energy-using equipment, systems, and processes
Variables affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization.
What are the benefits of implementing an ISO 50001 Energy Management System?
ISO 50001 will provide public and private sector organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance. By managing energy with this systematic approach your company will be able to:
- Reduce energy costs
- Continually improve energy performance
- Improve corporate image
- Reduce your GHG emissions
- Align your energy management with other business systems
