Energy Standards are the most common way that industries are able to integrate energy efficiency into existing industrial or commercial management systems for continuous improvement. Most energy efficiency in industry is achieved through changes in how energy is managed in a facility, rather than through new technologies. Today, ISO 50001 is the most common voluntary adopted energy management standard globally. There are also supporting standards that help ISO 50001.
ISO 50001 was originally released by ISO in June 2011. The second edition, ISO 50001:2018 was released in August of 2018. ISO standards are suitable for any organization, whatever its size, sector or location.
- ISO 50001:2018 Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use
- 50001:2011 (Replaced by ISO 50001:2018)- Energy management systems – Requirements with guidance for use
What standards was ISO 50001 based off of?
