ISO 50001 – Energy Management System
Energy prices across Europe are increasing, and not just gradually. The recent conflict situation between Ukraine and Russia as well as a huge increase in energy demand since the end of Covid-19 restrictions means that prices have soared. There is also little doubt now that heatwaves happening in Europe and the US are being caused by human-induced climate change, and so there has never been a more important time for large energy consumers to take control of their energy usage.
Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is essential
Also in today’s environment-conscious world, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions has become paramount. Governments on an International scale are imposing legislative mechanisms that promote the reduction of such emissions. The ISO 50001-2018 International Standard aims in promoting energy efficiency by reducing an organisation’s consumption through various ways and means, from introducing renewable resources and reducing the use of fossil fuels, to self-imposed carbon targets.
Therefore, the implementation of an Energy Management standard would set out an understanding of an organisation’s targets and objectives, and by using company data, decisions are taken that would promote energy efficiency, bringing with it a reduction to energy consumption and the annual energy costs incurred by a company.
