Integrate energy management best practices into your operations
TÜV SÜD provides customers with all the necessary guidance to companies on the design of appropriate structures and processes to set up an Energy Management System (EnMS). Implementation of an appropriate Energy Management System (EnMS) enables plant and building owners and operators to integrate energy management best practices into their management practices.
Depending on the sector of industry and the system in question, the introduction of an EnMS may cut the energy consumption of a company by as much as 20%. Achieving an optimised structure and processes to manage energy use can be implemented according to the internationally recognised energy management system - ISO 50001.
About ISO 50001
ISO 50001 is the first ever global standard on the subject of energy management. The existing standard, EN 16001 will be replaced by ISO 50001. Although the contents of the two standards are similar, there are some changes which are crucial in the implementation. The processes of the ISO 50001 standards aim at significantly reducing energy consumption in companies, thus saving costs and cutting greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental pollution. The standard is suitable for integration into other management systems including ISO 9001 or ISO 14001.
The central element of the ISO 50001 standard is the continuous improvement of an organization's energy performance. The standard describes the requirements that organizations must fulfil to establish, implement, maintain and improve an EnMS. The key advantage for organizations is that an EnMS and its impartial monitoring process facilitate the identification of potential areas for energy saving.
