What is ISO 50001?

ISO 50001 – Energy Management Systems

TheISO 50001:2011 energy management standard is an effective framework for organisations to develop, implement and maintain an energy management system (EnMS). ISO 50001 offers organisations a framework to integrate energy efficiency into their daily operations; allowing better use of energy resources and assets, while reducing overall costs and consumption.

According to the latest ISO Survey, the number of certified ISO 50001 energy management systems has seen a 69% increase in the last year. This increased rate of adoption is only set to increase in ensuing years as businesses are continually striving for improved energy practices as we move more towards renewable energy sources.

ISO 50001 is also 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 organisations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.
