ISO 50001:2011 Energy Management Systems
By implementing the ISO 50001 Standard, you can help improve your organization's energy efficiency, use, and consumption by taking a management systems approach.
An international energy management standard, ISO 50001, was published in June 2011. ISO 50001 establishes a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities, or entire organizations to manage energy. According to ISO, the standard could influence up to 60% of the world's energy use, with broad applicability across national economic sectors.
When an organization practices good energy management, top management and employees become more aware of how energy is used, the actual cost of energy, and the methods and equipment that can be used to control and reduce energy waste.
Benefits of implementing an Energy Management System

- Reduced environmental impacts
- Better use of existing energy-consuming assets
- Creates transparency and facilitates communication on the management of energy resources
- Promotes energy management best practices and reinforces good energy management behaviors
- Provides a framework for promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
