ISO 50001: 2011 Energy Management Registration

ISO 50001 – Energy Management Systems (EnMS) is a voluntary international framework for the management of energy in any business size. Implementation of this standard will assist organizations in reducing energy use through the utilization of best practices, measurement and reporting disciplines and promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain. Reduction in energy leads to reduced GHGs and operational costs. Download the full brochure here.

The Benefits of an Energy Management System

  • Credible energy and cost savings (non/low CAPEX)
  • Continuous EnMS improvement
  • Energy security
  • Energy efficiency
  • Reduction of GHG emissions and environmental impact
  • Coordinating energy programs (energy efficiency, energy production, renewable energy, and alternative energy)
  • Persistence
  • External financial incentives (i.e. NRCan)

Overview of ISO 50001 Key Concepts & Elements

  • General: energy performance of the entire organization
  • Application: All types and sizes of organizations. Production, raw materials and service sectors, including commercial buildings
  • Performance: Energy performance improvement initiatives measured through quantitative comparison against an organization’s baseline
  • Policy: Improving the bottom line by reducing production costs through energy efficient processes and conservation
  • Planning: Energy profile, significant energy uses, energy baseline, energy performance indicators. Establishment of objectives, targets, and actions plans
  • Baseline: The establishment of an organization’s energy baseline is a fundamental requirement of the standard as changes in energy performance will be measured against the baseline
