What is ISO 50001?

As an international standard, ISO 50001 specifies the requirements for organizations to develop, implement, and improve Energy Management Systems. This allows organizations to follow a specific framework that helps them achieve continual improvement in energy performance, efficiency, usage, and consumption. This framework specifies the measurements, documents, and reports, which enable organizations to monitor the progress of their processes and employees towards energy performance.

Similar to other management system standards published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO 50001 is based on the PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT approach to achieve continual improvement in energy performance. The relationship between its main elements is illustrated below.

According to the definition stipulated in ISO 50001 standard, energy can be in various forms, such as electricity, fuels, steam, heat, compressed air and renewable, which can be purchased, stored, treated, used in equipment or in a process, or recovered. The main purpose of adopting an Energy Management System (EnMS) is to enable an organization to improve its energy performance, which generally includes energy use, energy efficiency and energy consumption,
in a systematic approach.

The Deming cycle follows the process approach, which allows the Energy management system EnMS implementation process to use the requirements and the expectations of the stakeholders as inputs, understand how it produces these requirements with the necessary actions and processes, and also verification of the management system results.

The table shows how each clause of the EnMS management systems can potentially be implemented by following this structure. This structure includes mainly the requirements that are generic and existent in almost all the management systems. However, it should be adjusted based on the ISO 50001 standard that the organization is implementing and include additional clauses as necessary.
