MANAGEMENT OF ISO 50001 STANDARD
The ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems standard is an energy efficiency certificate that guarantees the existence of a system optimised for the correct use of energy in any organisation, whatever its nature or size, activity or dedication.
Creara actively participated in its preparation when the ISO 50001 energy efficiency standard was a Spanish and European standard (UNE 216 301, UNE EN 16001 respectively). He has also been part of the implementation team of the pilot project of this original standard as a member of AENOR’s Technical Committee for Standardisation 216 “Renewable energies, climate change and energy efficiency”.
The ISO 50001 energy efficiency certificate reflects some substantial changes to the nature of other standards based on continuous improvement. Essentially, these changes refer to the disappearance of the concept of energy aspect for the appearance of the concept of energy revision and calculation of the baseline.
This update makes the ISO 50001 standard more technical than others of a similar nature, bringing it closer to the concept of energy audit, comparable to that of energy review. In addition, it introduces some specifications in the operational control referring to requirements in the purchase of energy.
What is the purpose of ISO 50001 certification?
The purpose of ISO 50001 certification is to provide organizations, regardless of their sector of activity or size, with a tool that allows for the reduction of energy consumption, associated financial costs and, consequently, greenhouse gas emissions.
Based on the principle “measure to identify, and identify to improve”, the implementation of an Energy Management System in accordance with ISO 50001 allows public administrations and companies greater energy savings.
As a result, this fact means that any investment in this line has an immediate economic return, contrary to what happens with environmental management systems.
Benefits of implementing and certifying an Energy Management System ISO 50001
There are several benefits derived from the energy efficiency certificate of ISO 50001. The nature of these is clear from an environmental, economic, operational and image point of view. Some of them are:
- Energy savings in the short, medium and long term.
- Awareness and control of the amount of energy consumption in each process.
- Awareness of energy saving measures for the organization’s consumer processes.
- Recognition and image to the outside world (customers, suppliers, shareholders, public opinion) of its commitment to sustainable energy consumption.
