Energy is critical to organizational operations and can be a major cost to organizations, whatever their activities. An idea can be gained by considering the use of energy through the supply chain of a business, from raw materials through to recycling. 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.
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. ISO 50001 will provide public and private sector organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance.
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.
The implementation of an energy management system (EnMS – ISO 50001) often allows for simple organizational changes to result in significant savings, without any major investments. The benefits are :
- Energy flows become transparent
- Continual improvement of energy performance through continual monitoring of energy flows
- Evaluation of design and procurement practices as they relate to energy performance
- Identification of potential for energy savings through data analysis
- Reduction of energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions
- Strong, effective processes provide competitive advantages
- Employee awareness
- Adherence to legal requirements
- Improved image
- Stimulus for modernization
Our consultant will design EnMS specific and appropriate with your business process, integrated with current system, and based on client need. This makes your EnMS will improve EnPI – Energy Performance Indicator, easier to implement, and endorse the commitment of your personnel in implementing this EnMS.
