The last version of the ISO standard regarding energy management, namely ISO 50001: 2018, has improved many things, defined them more clearly, and regulated them more consistently. However, many medium-sized companies have difficulties with the energetic evaluation of the required energy indicators due to the new regulation. These regulations have tightened for proof of improvement in energy-related performance.
It is not always possible to set specific energy targets. For example, it is impossible to predict if the proposed solution will be successful or if the corresponding energy data is missing. In these cases, project targets are preceded by quantified energy targets.
Without the personal commitment from management and the provision of time, human and financial resources, an effective management system cannot be achieved, no matter what type and quality are established.
The managing directors should support and promote executives and employees' inclusion through participation, qualification, motivation, acknowledgment, training, and reward.
We are witnessing major changes in energy systems. An example is more diversified energy baskets that seek to incorporate cleaner technologies and renewable resources. On the other hand, better use of energy and new ways of doing business are encouraged. #renewableenergy #energiewende #energy #iso50001 #transicionenergetica
As with all other revised standards, as of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the new energy management standard also follows the high-level structure. This means that the company is contemplated according to its structure. Context means in principle "... a fundamental conceptual understanding of external and internal issues ... that can have a positive or negative impact on the organization's energy-related performance and energy management system."
Requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system (EnMS) according to the new version of 2018. The intended post is to help organizations to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance and the EnMS.
