Energy Management System

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001:2011 provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:

    Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
    Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
    Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
    Measure the results
    Review how well the policy works, and
    Continually improve energy management.

ISO 50001 Energy Management System
ISO 50001 represents the latest and best practices built on existing national and local standards in energy management. This standard is the framework for many years to come together from experts in energy management from more than 60 countries. At the same time, it helps in the implementation of the processes that provide understanding of the base energy consumption of the plant.
The Energy Management System enables the creation of action plans, setting targets to reduce consumption and setting energy performance indicators; and to identify, prioritize and record improvement opportunities to improve energy performance. This 9 was published in June 2011. UNIDO's demand was influential in the creation of the standard and an energy management committee was established at ISO at 2008. Designed to comply with ISO 9001 Quality Management, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and BS EN 16001 Energy Management System standards

When we talk about energy management, we actually talk about applying different methods for the most efficient use of energy. It is an energy management effort to reduce the energy costs per square meter of the products or services produced in production facilities by using energy in the most economical way. In a sense, energy management can be used in an organization to produce more production using the same amount of energy and thereby increase efficiency.

Increasing energy costs and changing climate structure in recent years increases the importance of energy efficiency day by day. The continuous improvement of energy efficiency by organizations contributes to the solution of today's problems such as global warming, energy security and fossil fuel use. Organizations that have a complex system are subject to high costs due to their systems and at the same time create high risk carbon emissions and environmental pollution.

ISO 50001 Energy Management System standards have been established by gathering experts in energy management from more than 60 countries. This system helps to implement processes that will help to understand how much energy is consumed in an organization. ISO 50001 Energy Management System ensures that action plans that will ensure energy consumption, setting targets to reduce consumption, monitoring energy consumption and creating performance indicators are always made.
ISO 50001 Energy Management System standards are not very different in content from EN 16001: 2009 standard. Only the standards have different item numbers and contain much more detail. There is also the definition of energy factor in new standards. This concept requires consideration of other factors that may affect this when analyzing energy consumption values. These two should be evaluated together in order to make the improvement decision correctly.
