ISO 50001: 2018 is a standard based on the analysis of energy consumption, postulation of energy policies of organizations, creation of frameworks and programs for energy management to contribute to more efficient energy management. ISO 50001: 2018 specifies the specific requirements applicable to the use and consumption of energy, including measurement, documentation and reporting, planning and purchase of equipment, human resources, etc., which contribute to energy performance.
Determining the energy profile of the organization, as well as studying the amount of energy consumed in the past, current and future energy consumption and developing an energy monitoring plan helps to improve energy management. This sets general and specific energy goals and creates more efficient models of energy use, which saves the organization money.
Any organization wishing to reduce its energy costs or the harmful impact of used fuels on the environment is appropriate to develop and implement an energy management system and apply for ISO 50001: 2018 certification.
