ISO 50001:2015 certification specifies requirements to set up an Energy Management System (EMS) that enables an organization to develop and implement a policy and control for identifying and maintaining significant areas of energy consumption and reduction. It determines the best practices in energy management through validating existing national standards and initiatives.
The certification requires organizations to promote energy savings initiatives and establishes for the reduction of energy intensiveness of a company’s operation.
Implementing ISO 50001 provides a framework for establishing a power system or energy management to help organizations to improve their energy efficiency. The standard requires the establishment of processes and systems that are needed to improve energy performance, including energy efficiency, use, and consumption.
Energy is a power that is derived from the utilizing the resources. But, sustainability on the other hand is quite complicated. Some of the examples include energy sources like solar energy, wind energy, geothermal energy, hydropower, and biomass energy. Most would debate that sustainable energy is energy that is obtained from the fuel that is renewable or will never run out and which also exhibits a minimal environmental impact.
