ISO 50001 creates a framework for organizations to implement a comprehensive Energy Management System. It is designed for all companies that are concerned with optimizing energy consumption, but it is especially recommended for companies in industries that have high levels of electricity or gas consumption or significant greenhouse gas emissions.
The standard allows for the achievement of good energy performance by establishing a baseline for energy consumption, improving the efficiency of energy use, and reducing costs and increasing profitability through effective energy management. Advantages of implementing an ISO 50001 compliant Energy Management System include reduced unit costs in production processes, energy security based on risk analysis, compliance with legal requirements, tax exemptions, reduced GHG emissions, data-based decision making, expert knowledge, positive company image, and continuous improvement.
By determining the base level of energy consumption, the ISO 50001 standard enables good energy results and makes the energy expenditure structure significantly more efficient in every plant, facility, or department. Through proper energy consumption management, the ISO 50001-based system translates into reducing the costs needed to achieve a specific product, product, or service, and enables significant improvement in financial results. Furthermore, it allows identification of sources of increased power consumption and taking actions that will reduce this consumption, thereby increasing savings and profitability of the enterprise.
The key benefits of implementing an Energy Management System compliant with ISO 50001 standard include:
- reduction of unit costs in product and service production processes, as well as costs associated with contracted power and reactive power,
- energy security of the company based on risk analysis-based energy management,
- compliance with legal requirements – the energy review performed as part of iso 50001 complies with the energy audit requirements of the company under the Energy Efficiency Act of May 20, 2016,
- exemption from excise duty on gaseous products used for heating purposes in energy-intensive plants, as per the Excise Tax Act of December 6, 2008,
- limiting the carbon footprint through GHG emission reduction from fuel and energy consumption,
- fact-based and data-driven decision making based on quantification,
- expert knowledge left behind by consultants and practitioners after the system is implemented in the organization,
- a positive image of the company as a socially responsible and environmentally friendly organization engaged in the implementation of ESG strategy, which also includes efficient energy management, confirmed by the ISO 50001 compliance certificate.
We offer comprehensive development and implementation of Energy Management System, including: metering of all energy consumers, 24/7 visualization of energy consumption results, analysis, optimization, and maintenance of achieved results in the form of concrete savings. With the cooperation of partners involved in obtaining grants from EU funds, we also offer support in financing eco-friendly investments, including energy-efficient machines, heat pumps, and photovoltaic panels.
