Energy, be it electricity, water or gas for example, is an invaluable resource and can affect an organization in a multitude of ways. the, energy, has become a key metric for companies and its consumption concerns the greenhouse gas emissions and demonstrating greater care for natural resources. As businesses become more environmentally aware with continuous rise in energy cost, a proactive energy management system is turning out to be a prime necessity for most organizations.

The need for energy management system

With the cost of energy (electricity, gas, oil, etc) rising, a need for an effective way to demonstrate your ability and commitment towards energy consumption has become a necessity. In order to maintain reasonable energy consumption, our world needs to control how we use energy and manage the process for continually improving our energy efficiency.Using energy efficiently helps organizations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change. Therefore, a management framework which helps organizations identify what energy is being used, where, when and highlight if it is being wasted, facilitate appropriate solutions to monitor and continually improve energy management processes has become utmost necessary.

Upon implementation of an effective energy management system in an organization, top management and employees become more aware of how energy is used, the actual cost of energy, and the methods and equipment that can be used to control and reduce energy waste. A systematically organized energy management system helps you to coordinate the collectionof data, conversion of measurements, distribution, and usage of energy throughout your company and show us show us where maximum cost savings and substantial improvement over the environment aspects can be achieved. Thus, in today’s business environment, an energy management system which can provide rapid benefits for an organization by maximizing the use of its energy resources and energy-related assets, reducing both energy cost and consumption has become the most important requirement.

  • Offer guidance on bench marking, measuring, documenting, and reporting energy intensity improvements and their projected reductions in greenhouse gas emissions
  • Create transparency and facilitate communication on the management of energy resources
  • Promote energy management best practices and reinforce good energy management behaviors
  • 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 organization management systems such as environment and health & safety

By certifying to ISO 50001:2018, your organizations can demonstrate makes a commitment to sustainability to customers, employees, investors and regulators. By doing so, your organizations can gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace and help enhance their brand, which directly supports their marketing strategy.

Who is ISO 50001:2018 for?

An EnMS can be implemented as a stand-alone solution in your company, or can be added to existing management systems resulting in improved quality and work safety conditions.ISO 50001:2018 is a standard that has been designed with the flexibility to be able to apply for any organization regardless of its size, that establishes a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities, other energy intense industries and sectors that can achieve significant improvement in their energy use, optimizing their consumption and using more renewable energy.Some industries that may especially benefit from ISO 50001:2018 certification are oil and gas industries, manufacturing industries, hotels and can improve its energy efficiency by staggering amount.

An energy management system in line with the requirement standards of ISO 50001:2018, so that your company will:

  • Effectively promote energy efficiency throughout your organization
  • Establish positive external relations and public image
  • Raise awareness and create greater employee stewardship

Many countries enforce the mandatory implementation of an EnMS and regulations, and some encourage compliance with incentive programs. The standard can also help organizations be better prepared for government- or utility-sponsored energy efficiency programs, carbon or energy taxes, and international climate agreements. In the case of multinational companies, this can greatly simplify compliance with environmental mandates across national borders since ISO 50001:2018 is internationally recognized.
