ISO 50001: Are you ready for the new energy management standard?
Historically, when businesses managed assets, it meant that they were concerned with hard assets, such as facilities and equipment. Now the growing trend in enterprise asset management involves investigating the role energy plays in judging the value of assets to an organization. Energy usage can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line and profitability of a company.
When looking at energy use from end-to-end, companies need to review both quantitative and qualitative data. All that data needs to be gathered, documented, analyzed, and accounted for in a systematic way. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently issued a new standard to help companies create a systematic approach to investigating the role of energy usage in asset management: "ISO 50001:2011: Energy management systems-Requirements with guidance for use."
Read this white paper to understand how, by following the ISO 50001 standard, you can create a viable method for establishing a policy and culture of energy and asset management, and how technology can support this process to:
- Reduce your exposure to energy costs.
- Reduce carbon-related emissions without disrupting operations.
- Manage continual improvement of energy intensity.
- Value both avoidance and savings for internal and external metrics.
