Implementation of ISO 50.001

We are experts in Energy Management Systems, and we advise clients interested in becoming certified in the implementation of Energy Management Systems such as ISO 50.001. For us, experts in energy consulting and engineering, the ISO 50001, IS NOT A STANDARD, we think so for the following reasons:

1. It brings tangible benefits to an organization, such as economic savings.

2. It is a standard that is receiving a great boost from public administrations due to the need to comply with the different energy saving directives, so in many cases it can be supported by financial aid.

3. It promotes and complements the environmental management and social responsibility strategies of organizations.

In the first instance, the scope within the different possible visions to be developed in the implementation of an energy management system (validation of existing procedures or creation of new procedures) must be determined.

The phases of the implementation project can be divided into three phases, the first being the most technical and important:

PHASE I: Development of the Energy Management System (EMS): The energy review and definition of the baseline calculation is one of the key stages. The initial areas of consumption must be identified, developing an energy balance, as well as the different factors that influence this consumption, and the information obtained in the energy review analyses the energy performance:

  • Establish an energy baseline: a quantitative benchmark used as a basis for comparing energy performance.
  • Define and calculate Energy Performance Indicators (IDEn): they must be appropriate to the activity of the organization and allow the monitoring of its performance (worker, m2, day grade, day grade, day grade of heating, solar irradiation,…)
  • Once the energy consumption has been determined, a baseline is established to serve as a model against which to compare the energy performance of the installation.
  • Another phase of great strategic and technical importance is the establishment of operational control methodologies within the SGE itself.

PHASE II: Implementation Support

PHASE III: Internal Audit
