    ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management System

    The ISO 50001:2018 Energy Management Systems Standard focuses on managing the consumption of energy by understanding the different sources of energy, utilisation, and bill verification.

    Energy Performance Indicators are key to understanding the utilisation of each asset and its consumption. This is achieved through the use of smart meters that are accredited to National Standards and calibrated regularly. The configurations of the management of energy consumption can then assist in creating energy programs and objectives to manage energy by utilising efficient assets to reduce consumption. The Standard requires a high capital investment with a strong return on investment and a reduction in operational expenditure.

    What is ISO 50001:2018?

    ISO 50001:2018 is an International Standard focused on the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and improving an Energy Management System (EnMS). Data analysis, statistics, energy efficient assets, combined with a culture of understanding of how to save and manage energy, is key to an organisation’s adoption of an effective Energy Management System.

    It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting achievable targets for energy use, and designing action plans to reach them and measure progress. This might include implementing new energy-efficient technologies, reducing energy waste or improving current processes to cut energy costs.

    Why does an organisation need ISO 50001:2018?

    ISO 50001:2018 assists organisations to manage and improve their energy performance. Organisations should strive to understand their current energy consumption over a period of time, its energy sources, distribution of energy to its assets, effective utilisation of energy, and measuring of overall energy performance to understand the organisations Energy Baseline, to ensure the production of goods or services is at an optimal level. To achieve this, an Energy Review is required.

    Once the analysis of the data has been undertaken and understood, Energy Objectives and Initiatives can be created and consistently monitored through Policies, Procedures, and Plans – which will enhance the activities of the organisation. A case study to conduct a Comparative Analysis prior to implementation will show significant savings on operational expenditure.

    What are the benefits of implementing ISO 50001:2018?

    Benefits of implementing ISO 50001:2018 include:

    • A significant improvement of the energy performance level from an initial energy baseline.
    • A systematic approach (Plan-Do-Check-Act) that leads to continuous energy efficiency improvement. ISO 50001:2018 enables organisations to:
      • Develop and implement a Policy for efficient use of energy.
      • Establish energy efficiency Targets and Objectives to support the framework established in the Policy.
      • Use data to understand and make informed decisions concerning energy use and consumption (evidence-based thinking).
      • Measure the results of energy efficiency improvements.
      • Review the effectiveness of the Energy Policy.
      • Continually improve energy management.
      • ISO 50001:2018 facilitates engagement (commitment and agreement) of management and has a positive contribution towards the energy targets.
      • Increased awareness and a commitment to energy (i.e. consumption, use, efficiency, renewable sources).
      • Improved ability to manage energy risks and related possible impacts in an efficient and effective way.
      • Strengthened competitiveness and a reduction in vulnerability related to energy price fluctuations and availability of energy.
      • Establishment of benchmarks while promoting continual improvement of processes.
      • An ISO 50001:2018-based EnMS allows organisations to gain credible external visibility of energy-saving actions.
      • Improved understanding of the relationship between predictable energy demand and supply.
      • Reduction of energy costs and increased profitability.

    How do I implement ISO 50001:2018 in an organisation?

    ISO Consulting & Implementation:

    We have a range of professional Consultants, Engineers, and registered Auditors to assist in implementing and maintaining any ISO Management System. Our industry expertise includes services, telecommunication, manufacturing, construction, engineering services, fast-moving consumer goods, mining, power generation, state-owned companies, and government-run organisations. A good Consultant takes the time to truly understand the processes of your organisation.

    Therefore, they can approach the implementation of ISO requirements accordingly. The cost of hiring a Consultant and the time spent to implement your ISO Management System will definitely pay off in the long run.

    WWISE has a 4-Phase Approach:

    • Phase 1: Gap Analysis Audit and Information Gathering
    • Phase 2: ISO Documentation, Risk Assessment, and Process Mapping
    • Phase 3: Implementation and Coaching
    • Phase 4: Certification

    WWISE provides a turnkey solution which includes templates, one-on-one coaching, on-the-job training, and mentorship. As a consulting firm, we do not provide certification services. However, we will guide you through the certification process and ensure that your organisation becomes certified.

    Why Choose WWISE to assist your organisation?

    An Organisation cannot certify to a guideline standard; you can implement the standard and receive a letter of conformity.
