ISO 50001 Energy Management System and Audit: 2011 Standards

Energy is very significant to any organizational operations and it is a major cost, Irrespective of their activities. In addition to the economic costs of energy to an organization, energy can impose environmental and societal costs by depleting resources and contributing to problems such as climate change.

Individual organizations cannot control energy prices, government policies or the global economy, but they can better manage energy internally. Improved energy performance can provide rapid benefits for an organization by maximizing the use of its energy sources and energy-related assets, thus reducing both energy cost and consumption. The organization will also make positive contributions toward reducing depletion of energy resources and mitigating worldwide effects of energy use, such as global warming.

Energy Management Systems ISO 50001 is based on the management system model that is already understood and implemented by organizations worldwide. It can make a positive difference for organizations of all types in the very near future, while supporting longer term efforts for improved energy technologies.

HISTORY & DEVELOPMENT

Energy Management System ISO 50001 has been adapted from an earlier British Standard on energy management – the BS 16001. The request to ISO to develop an international energy management standard came from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) which had recognized industry’s need to mount an effective response to climate change and to the proliferation of national energy management standards. ISO, in turn, had identified energy management as one of the top five fields for the development of International Standards and, in 2008, created a project committee, ISO/PC 242, Energy management, to carry out the work.

Experts from the national standards bodies of 44 ISO member countries participated within ISO/PC 242 in the development of ISO 50001, with another 14 countries as observers. The standard also benefited from the participation of development organizations including UNIDO and the World Energy Council (WEC).

ISO 50001 has been able to draw on numerous national or regional energy management standards, specifications and regulations, including ones developed in China, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Republic of Korea, Netherlands, Sweden, Thailand, the USA and the European Union.

WHAT IS ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is a standard that is intended to provide organizations with a recognized framework for integrating energy performance into their management practices.

Multinational organizations will have access to a single, harmonized standard for implementation across the organization with a logical and consistent methodology for identifying and implementing improvements.

Key Benefits of ISO 50001 Certification/Accreditation consulting and Lead Auditor Training.

The standard is intended to accomplish the following :

  • Assist organizations in making better use of their existing energy consuming assets
  • Create transparency and facilitate communication on the management of energy resources
  • Promote energy management best practices and reinforce good energy management behaviours
  • Assist facilities in evaluating and prioritizing the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies
  • Provide a framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
  • Facilitate energy management improvements for greenhouse gas emission reduction projects
  • Allow integration with other organizational management systems such as environmental, and health and safety

REQUIREMENTS

ISO 50001 is based on the ISO management system model familiar to more than a million organizations worldwide who implement standards such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 (environmental management), ISO 22000 (food safety), ISO/IEC 27001 (information security).

In particular, ISO 50001 follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act process for continual improvement of the energy management system. These characteristics enable organizations to integrate energy management now with their overall efforts to improve quality, environmental management and other challenges addressed by their management systems.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements enabling organizations to :

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions concerning energy use and consumption
  • Measure the results
  • Review the effectiveness of the policy
  • Continually improve energy management.
  • ISO 50001 can be implemented individually or integrated with other management system standards.

FUTURE

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model that is already understood and implemented by organizations worldwide. It can make a positive difference for organizations of all types in the very near future, while supporting long term efforts for improved energy technologies.

CERTIFICATION

Certification is a valuable tool which you can use to demonstrate to your stakeholders that you meet the very latest energy management best practice. Certification will ensure that management systems are looked from an independent angle, by trained and experienced assessors to ensure that the benefits of the ISO 50001 Energy management is derived.
