ISO 50001 Energy Management (EnMS)
Energy Mangement System ISO 50001 is a voluntary Globally aligned International Standard to provide organisations an internationally recognised framework to manage and improve their energy performance. The standard addresses the following:
- Energy use and consumption
- Measurement, documentation, and reporting of energy use and consumption
- Design and procurement practices for energy-using equipment, systems, and processes
- Development of an energy management plan and other factors affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization.
Energy ISO50001 EnMS does not include prescriptive energy performance goals. Rather, it provides a framework through which each organisation can set and pursue its own goals for improving energy performance.
Certification to ISO50001 EnMS can be used to prove compliance with the UK’s Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme ESOS.
What is an energy management system?
An energy management system is a series of processes that enables an organisation to use data and information to maintain and improve energy performance, while improving operational efficiencies, decreasing energy intensity, and reducing environmental impacts.
