ISO 50001-Energy Management System

The ISO 50001 standard is a global benchmark that has been designed by ISO to promote energy efficiency and environmental responsibility to leading industrial establishments in the world. The program was started due to the realization that there was an increasing need for governments and private sector players in the manufacturing sector to prioritize energy conservation through effective methods that can be internationally harmonized.

Revision work on ISO 50001 standards began in early 2013. Revised standard is expected to be published by July-August 2016 after due consideration of all comments received from participating countries. The revised ISO 50001 standard will be a homogenized standard and in line with other management standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. The revised standard aims at creating a framework approach for industrial establishments and plants to manage and effectively conserve all aspects of energy usage that include procurement, utilization and environmental protection and improvement in environmental performance.

ISO 50001 Application:

  • ISO 50001 certified industrial plants that have successfully adopted independent, verifiable and efficient energy management strategies. The strategies include effective technical capacity to reduce energy input, energy costs and negative environmental impact while at the same time utilizes all inputs of energy at the highest level of efficiency.
  • Industrial plants that have considerably reduced energy intensity will be recognized in addition to plants that considerably reduce their over reliance of fossil fuels to general industrial electricity. The rational is based on the research that fossil fuels contributed to almost 95% of Green House Gases (GHS).
  • ISO 50001 certified industrial plants will include companies and suppliers that have incorporated and fully integrated a functional energy efficient and management approach into their general company management practice. Furthermore the companies will adopt an effective and efficient methodology for identifying and implementing potential improvements for energy efficiency.

The following are some of the ISO 50001 benefits:

  • ISO 50001 will help organization and industries make complete and effective use of their existing and potential energy assets in their production.
  • Implementation of ISO 50001 helps organizations avoid energy liability fines
  • Organizations save $$$$ by saving operating costs through efficient energy management
  • Organizational help in conservation of scarce energy resources and helps in environmental protection
  • Use of this standards help the organizations in their business sustainability
  • Organization learn to identify savings possibilities through better utilization of recycling, better landfills and efficient use of utilities
  • Implementation helps organizations have an edge over those who have not adapted the standards
  • Implementation of this standard attracts positive response for all stake holders including investors
  • Promotes and facilitates communication and transparency in energy resource management, upholds best innovations and behaviors in energy control regulation and management.
  • ISO 50001 will provide a logical framework in prioritizing and evaluating the consistent implementation of the energy management programs and energy efficient technological adoptions in industrial plants worldwide throughout the supply chain.
