What is the value of ISO 50001?
“You can’t manage what you don’t measure” This principle applies to the world of energy management and is an area of growing interest and concern to enterprises around the world due to its potential to help control costs, boost efficiency, and enhance competitiveness.
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 System that can be monitored and influenced by the organisation
Most importantly, ISO 50001 does not have prescriptive energy performance goals.
It is simply a framework through which you can set and pursue your own business-specific goals for improving energy performance.
