ISO 50001 - Energy Management System
The development of an energy management system based on the requirements of the ISO 50001 international standard can have multiple benefits and, perhaps most importantly, significantly reduce the operating costs for a company.
This is turn can improve a company’s competitiveness.
With the help of an energy management system based on compliance with the requirements of the ISO 50001 international standard, a company can systematically reduce energy losses from its processes, and set targets for improving energy efficiency and process performance.
The benefits from developing an energy management system include:
Reduction in the environmental impact due to energy consumption (such as reduction in CO2 emissions)
Reduced exposure when energy prices are rising
More efficient equipment operation
Increase in availability (reduction in utilization time) of energy production equipment (e.g. air compressors, steam generators)
