Energy is critical to organizations, but often represents a significant cost – both to them and the environment. World energy consumption continues to rise: it has more than doubled in the last 40 years and is projected to increase a further 30% by 2040.
An energy management system helps organizations better manage their energy use, thus improving productivity. It involves developing and implementing an energy policy, setting achievable targets for energy use, and designing action plans to reach them and measure progress. This might include implementing new energy-efficient technologies, reducing energy waste or improving current processes to cut energy costs. ISO 50001 gives organizations a recognized framework for developing an effective energy management system. Like other ISO management system standards, it follows the “Plan-Do-Check-Act” process for continual improvement.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
