ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification

Pioneering organisations, like ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe, POSCO, the Korean steel maker, or Bridgestone Plant have all achieved certification to the international ISO 50001 standard for energy management. The standard came out in July 2011 and is gaining more and more acceptance with organisations wanting to manage their energy better.

ISO 50001 is based on the typical Plan-Do-Check-Act model of ISO management systems, like ISO 9001 (quality management) and ISO 14001 (environmental management).

ISO 50001 is about the continual improvement of the energy management system and the integration of energy management with an organisation’s overall effort to improve quality, environmental management and other challenges addressed by their management systems.

The standard provides a framework of requirements to help organisations:

  • Develop an energy policy
  • Set targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Analyse data to better understand and make energy decisions
  • Measure energy consumption information
  • Implement an  energy action plan
  • Review the effectiveness of the policy
