DIN EN ISO 50001
The energy management certification has one priority target, which is to achieve continuous improvement of energy efficiency and reduction of energy consumption in your organisation with the help of systematic assessment of the energy consumption and to lower costs in the process. Energy consumption figures and energy costs in an organisation become transparent and the options to cut down on energy consumption become apparent. With an efficient energy management the organisation also makes a significant contribution to the conservation of resources and the protection of the climate.
Advantages for the organisation
Identification of energy-intensive processes and areas within the organisation with savings potential
Lowering the energy costs
Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
Utilisation of legal advantages (e.g. a compensation scheme according to EEG [Renewable Energy Act] and peak balancing)
Competitive edges and a boost to the image
Security of energy supplies
Compliance with the requirements of relevant legislation
News regarding the Energy Management Certification according to DIN EN ISO 50001 (as of 06/2017):
ISO 50003: The DIN ISO 50003 basically contains requirements for the certification of energy management systems. Until mid-August 2017, our accreditation will be completed. The new specifications of the ISO have the following impact for you as our client:
- The improvement of the energy related performance (energy efficiency) has to exist clearly documented and checked by the auditors. Ideally, relative figures for illustration of the improvement are present, however, there are also other possibilities.
- In future, the calcuation of the on-site-time of the auditor is based on the factors of the number of persons relevant for the energy management system, the number and the consumption of the energy sources as well as the number of main consumers. It is possible that the audit times can be changed due to the new calculation specifications.
- There are now eight technical areas for which a certification body can be accredited and it mainly concerns the selection and competence of the auditors. ift Rosenheim is accredited for six technical areas in the accreditation phase like industry light/medium, industry hard, building, building complexes, transport and energy supply. The technical areas agriculture and mining have not been applied for by ift Rosenheim. One of the technical terms will be written on audit plans and reports instead of “industrial” or “not industrial”.
ISO 50006 und 50015: The standards ISO 50006 and ISO 50015 were introduced end of 2014 and provide practical assistance when dealing with energetic performance indicators and concretise the specifications of ISO 50001.
The energy planning in ISO 50001 with regard to the development, use and surveillance of EnPIs (figures) and EnBs (energy baselines) is specified in ISO 50006. The steps for derivation and amendment of the figures are explained in detail and with examples.Furthermore, ISO 50015 concretises the procedure for measurement and collection of data that are necessary for the energetic performance assessment. The standard contains the guideline for measurement, analysis and verification of relevant data like energy consumptions and relevant influencing factors in addition to the description of the planning process.
