ISO 50001:2018- Energy Management Systems (EnMS)

What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 is an internationally recognized standard, which can be applied / implemented by any organization or services industry which is involved in activities affecting Energy Performance. This standard can be uniformly applied to organizations of any size or complexity irrespective of their geographic location. Energy Management System (EnMS) standard was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), with an intention to help organizations to conserve resources and address all Risks associated with Energy consumption.

EnMS prescribes controls over those activities that have an impact (Positive / Negative) on the overall energy consumption. These primarily include the use of alternative renewable energy sources as well as the implementation of new designs and innovations in Utilities and processes for the overall reduction in Energy consumption indirectly reducing costs.

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement, which is also used for well-known standards like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. This makes it simpler for organizations to incorporate energy management into their overall quality and environmental management efforts. ISO 50001:2018 version is a 10 clause structure and has adopted the P-D-C-A cycle for effective implementation of an Energy management system. The overall focus is on understanding current energy consumption patterns and working on techniques to reduce the dependence on Energy and overall reduce operational costs.
