scope:

DIN EN ISO 50001 describes management systems which are comparable with quality or environmental management systems in terms of methodology. The implementation of an energy management system requires appropriate strategic, planning and operative measures to be put in place to bring about an increase in energy efficiency which can be verified through transparent reporting and monitoring mechanisms. A management system within a company or organisation must be implemented in accordance with respective European and international standards. An audit is performed to verify implementation and to certify the system, either independently or in conjunction with an existing management system. Corresponding guidance ranging from implementation to certification of DIN EN ISO 50001 energy management systems is drawn up by European authorities at national level. The audit checks the design and implementation of a management system, but not the individual technical or organisational measures, which would require detailed specialist knowledge. However, this expertise is required not only to establish an energy management system but also to achieve tangible, i.e. measurable increases in energy efficiency. The aim of this guideline is to give practical examples of measures that have been implemented which will then assist businesses or organisations in similar situations with the implementation procedure.
