Energy Management Systems
Energy has long held considerable significance for manufacturing industry as a factor within the competitive environment. But the potential offered by improved energy efficiency is also increasingly recognized by those engaged in trade and the service industries, as well as by the public sector. Continuous optimization of energy management is necessary in order to reduce energy costs and protect the environment. This is where the ISO 50001 standards play an important role: they support companies and other organizations and institutions in the development of systems and processes designed to improve energy efficiency.
In its “Energy Concept”, the Federal Government has announced its intention to only grant certain concessions in the areas of energy and electricity taxation as from 2013 if organizations contribute towards energy saving. Suitable proof of this contribution can be provided in the form of certified recording and reporting within energy management systems (EnMS) in accordance with ISO 50001.
Target groups for certification A certified energy management system is recommended for all organizations looking to sustainably improve their energy efficiency. In addition to manufacturing industry, such organizations can include trading companies and service providers as well as public sector bodies.
Transitional Arrangements for the revision of ISO 50001:2011
The General Assembly, acting on the recommendation of the Technical Committee, resolved that the Transitional Arrangement for the Revision of ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems – Requirements with guidance for use, be three years from the date of publication (21 August 2018) of the revised standard. All ISO 50001:2011 certifications shall expire or be withdrawn at the end of the transition period (21 August 2021).
