The Energy Management System

ISO 50001 requires the organisation to take an ‘Energy Baseline’ of it’s activities and then sets objectives for efficiencies, measured by ‘Energy Performance Indicators’.

The standard uses the familiar PLAN, DO, CHECK, ACT model, which can be found in other standards such as ISO 9001ISO 14001ISO 27001. Elements of these standards can easily be aligned.

BS 16001 and ISO 50001

Although some of the terminology has been changed, the spirit of these standards is very similar.

ISO 50001 has some additional requirements including some mandatory procedures, which BS EN 16001 does not.

ISO 50001 and ISO 14001 – A Perfect Match

Energy Management should be viewed as part of overall environmental policy and therefore aspects of ISO 14001 can be easily expanded to integrate an ISO 50001 Energy Management System.
