ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard
Realizing the importance of energy management, ISO 50001 was developed as the future International Standard for energy management by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in 2008.
ISO 50001 energy management standard specifies requirements for an organization to establish, implement, maintain and improve an Energy Management System (EnMS), enabling the organization to take a systematic approach to achieving continual improvement of energy performance within their operations.
This new standard will establish an international framework to help manage the energy supply, uses and consumption of industrial, commercial, or institutional organizations, including measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for energy using equipment, systems and processes.
ISO 50001 energy management standard applies to all aspects affecting energy use, which can be monitored and influenced by an organization.
