Energy management systems. Usage requirements and recommendations
In the ISO 50001 standard the requirements for assessment, implementation, maintaining and improving of the energy management system were specified which is aimed at making it possible for the organization to apply a systematic approach to continuously improve the energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption. The standard defines requirements applicable for usage and consumption of energy, including practices of measurement, documentation and reporting, designing and procurement – for equipment, systems, processes and staff contributing to energy performance. The standard is applicable to all variables having an impact on energy performance, which may be monitored and influenced by the organization. The standard for energy management systems was designed in such a way that it may be applied independently; nevertheless it may also be adapted or integrated with other management systems.
