Energy Management is a well-documented and systematic way to reduce a company's energy consumption.

The key elements of ISO 50001 - energy management:

  • Energy policy
    Management must commit to continuously working on improvements. It is absolutely essential that management adopts an energy policy and an objective for energy work.
  • Planning
    During the planning phase, energy consumption is mapped out. Energy projects are to be identified, and objectives and action plans are set.
  • Implementation and operation
    Resources are allocated, projects are implemented, energy-efficient purchases are made in relation to operation and maintenance.
  • Check and correct
    It is important to check energy work continuously by measuring, monitoring, and following up on deviations with corrective actions.
  • Management review
    A vital element of energy management is management's annual review. This helps to anchor the work in the organization and helps to ensure momentum. Management must initiate continuous improvements.
