In today's society, effective energy management is a crucial issue for the success of any business. An Energy Management System (EnMS) would be the ideal solution – EnMS helps your organisation in the precision management of energy. In conjunction with enhancing your energy efficiency, an EnMS can cut costs and reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions providing you with a competitive advantage of your assurance to the market that you effectively manage energy and demonstrates commitment to your customers.
Why is EN16001 gaining traction in Singapore? The Inter-Ministeral Committee on Sustainable Development (IMCSD) was set up in 2009 to develop a national framework and key strategies for Singapore's sustainable development. The blueprint report highlighted several goals for energy efficiency, one of which is:
Reduce Singapore's energy intensity (per dollar GDP) by 20% from 2005 levels by 2020, and by 35% from 2005 levels by 2030.
ISO 50001 which will replace EN16001:2009 Energy management systems. EN 16001:2009 (E) is currently the European standard for Energy management and 3rd party systems certification.
ISO 50001:2011 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system, whose purpose is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption.
ISO 50001:2011 specifies requirements applicable to energy use and consumption, including measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for equipment, systems, processes and personnel that contribute to energy performance.
ISO 50001:2011 applies to all variables affecting energy performance that can be monitored and influenced by the organization. ISO 50001:2011 does not prescribe specific performance criteria with respect to energy.
ISO 50001:2011 has been designed to be used independently, but it can be aligned or integrated with other management systems.
ISO 50001:2011 is applicable to any organization wishing to ensure that it conforms to its stated energy policy and wishing to demonstrate this to others, such conformity being confirmed either by means of self-evaluation and self-declaration of conformity, or by certification of the energy management system by an external organization.
ISO 50001:2011 also provides informative guidance.
