Descriptive information:

Using energy efficiently helps organisations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change. ISO 50001, an energy management standard, includes methodology enabling organisations to establish systems and processes to improve their energy performance. Experts can guide companies to successful certification under this scheme.

The experts help to:

  • Create company policy focused on energy performance
  • Form an energy management team including technicians interested in energy performance and backed by management
  • Conduct a company energy review; establish a baseline, set performance indicators (power and water)
  • Set objectives, methods and energy management action plans to achieve all targets
  • Train staff in energy efficiency
  • Set communication and conflict resolution policies
  • Consider energy performance in designing new products and all purchasing decisions
  • Monitor all activities, control the measurements, continually evaluate (internal audits)
  • Inform top management regularly on energy efficiency activities
  • Keep records and control all documentation
