An energy management system is geared to the continuous improvement of energy efficiency. Here, the processes that are to increase energy efficiency are systematically and permanently integrated into the operations, thus reducing energy costs in the long term. Large energy consumers are identified, the appropriate energy efficiency measures are derived and implemented at the end.
Work energy efficient
With an energy management system according to ISO 50001, your energy data is systematically recorded. This enables you to identify potential savings and increase your energy efficiency with concrete measures. This saves energy, reduces your costs and protects the environment.
In principle, an energy management system in accordance with ISO 50001 is possible in all companies, regardless of size and industry. Companies can decide for themselves whether to introduce this as a stand-alone system or integrate it into an existing system.
DIN EN ISO 50001 is the international standard for an energy management system. Since June 2011, this standard has defined the international framework and requirements for an energy management system in companies for the first time. It thus also forms the basis for certification. The standard applies across all industries and to companies of all sizes.
An energy audit according to DIN EN 16247-1 must be repeated every 4 years. Companies that have established an energy management system according to DIN EN ISO 50001 are exempt from this obligation. Unlike a selective energy audit, an energy management system allows you to create structures and processes with which you can increase your energy efficiency in the long term.
Both solutions offer different advantages and disadvantages depending on the industry and company structure. Our team of experts will be happy to advise you and work with you to find the optimal solution for your company.
The introduction of an energy management system is quite simple for you as a company. The energy management system can be introduced independently or you can use existing processes. Then the existing processes are linked to the energy management system. For example, your energy management system can be combined with quality management in accordance with ISO 9001. This saves you time and money.
Since October 2017, the ISO 50003 standard brings changed requirements for energy management systems. All ISO 50001 certifications must be performed according to the new requirements of ISO 50003.
This means that the focus is additionally on the continuous improvement of energy-related performance (energy efficiency). So in the future, you will have to prove your continuous improvement of energy efficiency through traceable measurement results.
What is the best way to do this? Clearly, with our energy controlling software EnerBoard. Here you have all energy data transparently at a glance and can thus compile the required data quickly and easily.
