ISO 50001

Energy Management System

What is the purpose of ISO 50001?

  • To provide a framework for managing energy performance.
  • Provide a systematic approach to set and reach organizational energy use and consumption goals.
  • Provide organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance.
  • The cornerstone for improving energy performance.
  • Energy performance = Measurable results related to energy efficiency, energy use and energy consumption.

Why consider ISO 50001?

  • ISO 50001 has been designed solely for the management of energy.
  • Energy management is often overlooked with ISO 14001.
  • Most companies do not truly understand how much energy they currently use and how much money they can potential save by implementing an EnMS.
  • Forces companies to establish baselines and identify areas for significant improvements in energy performance.
  • Encourages companies to look into renewable energy sources.
  • ISO 50001 intends to help organizations:
    • Better manage their existing significant energy uses.
    • Promote energy management best practices.
    • Evaluate and prioritize the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies or OFIs.
    • Integrate an EnMS with other management systems.
      • Examples: environmental, health and safety.
