  3. 3. 1 INTRODUCTION ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EnMS) PRACTITIONER’S GUIDE “ All societies require energy to meet basic human needs (e.g., lighting, material processing, space Reducing energy use and increasing comfort, mobility and communication) and to serve energy efficiency is a proven strategy productive processes. Since 1859, global use of fossil for cutting and controlling costs with fuels (coal, oil and gas) has increased, leading to rapid good returns. growth in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.1 In order for industry to make significant gains in EPA, 2011 energy efficiency, there must be greater awareness and knowledge sharing about programs, resources Energy management, a topic once “owned” by and practical methods that can help industrial plants environmentalists, is increasingly one that ranks identify, develop and document energy efficiency/ as “urgent” by senior executives from various intensity improvements. Historically, energy saving industries. There has been a significant shift in efforts have been delegated to plant engineers, business attitudes globally regarding climate change frequently with assistance from consultants or and energy. Companies are beginning to identify the suppliers with highly specialized technical skills, true costs of carbon-centric energy consumption often one project at a time. Quantifying results and patterns. This congruence of concerns around cost, measuring progress relies heavily on the presence supply, reliability and environmental impacts of the of individual energy efficiency “champions” within a energy needed to sustain our economies and way of company and their access to consultants or suppliers. life are increasingly influencing business and planet Drawbacks to this approach are that achievements decisions at the highest levels.11 are often not well understood by those without specialized expertise, replication occurs slowly in As a result of this rapid change in perceptions, the market, not a risk based approach over time, and corporate America has reached a tipping point, with benefits (ROI) may disappear if the champion leaves companies across a host of industries now making the the company or is relocated. cost, availability and environmental impact of their end-to-end energy consumption a strategic priority. Energy is an operational expense that has a direct They are now frequently viewing energy management impact on profitability. While the old business as a form of risk management. What once was model says, “It is a cost of doing business,” the managed as a cost is increasingly being managed as implementation of an EnMS replaces this model a strategic risk – and as a source of new value and with, “How can we be more cost-effective in energy opportunities. performance, efficiency and service?”The bottom line — good energy management is good business, and adopting an energy managementstrategy is a business decision you cannot afford to ignore.

  4. 4. 2 ISO IN BRIEF The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has a membership of some 160 national standards bodies from countries large and small, industrialized, developing and in transition, in all “ regions of the world. ISO’s portfolio of over 18,600 standards provide business, government and society with practical and vetted tools for all three ISO 50001 is based on the ISO dimensions of sustainable development: economic, management system model familiar environmental and social. ISO standards make a positive contribution to the world we live in. They to more than a million organizations facilitate trade, spread knowledge, disseminate worldwide who implement standards innovative advances in technology, and share good such as ISO 9001 (quality management), ISO 14001 management and conformity assessment practices. (environmental management), ISO 22000 (food safety), ISO standards provide solutions and achieve benefits ISO/IEC 27001 (information security). In particular, ISO for almost all sectors of activity, including agriculture, construction, mechanical engineering, manufacturing, 50001 follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act process for continual distribution, transport, medical devices, information improvement of the energy management system. and communication technologies, the environment, energy, quality management, conformity assessment These characteristics enable organizations to integrate and services. ISO only develops standards for which energy management now with their overall efforts to improve there is a clear market requirement. The work is quality, environmental management and other challenges carried out by experts in the subject drawn directly addressed by their management systems. from the industrial, technical and business sectors that have identified the need for the standard, and which subsequently put the standard to use. These ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements enabling experts may be joined by others with relevant organizations to: knowledge, such as representatives of government ● Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy agencies, testing laboratories, consumer associations ● Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy and academia, and by international governmental ● Use data to better understand and make decisions and nongovernmental organizations.17 concerning energy use and consumption ● Measure the results ● Review the effectiveness of the policy ● Continually improve energy management. ISO 50001 can be implemented individually or integrated with other management system standards.” ISO, 2011An ISO International Standard represents a global consensuson the state of the art in the subject of that standard.

  6. 6. ISO TASK FORCE RECOMMENDATION“ National energy management standards have been developed and are in use in various countries, resulting already in significant savings in energy consumption and reductions in GHG emissions. Regional and national standards development is underway in Europe, China, USA and other countries. The increasing interest in this field and the explicit requests received by ISO, have led the Technical mangement Board (TMB) to already address the matter and the Task Force recommends that ISO moves forward expeditiously.” International Energy Agency, 2009 5 Implementing ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard, A Practitioner’s Guide, Copyright © 2011, UL DQS Inc.

  11. 11. 8 STATISTICS ON ENERGY SAVINGS FROM EPA.GOVEven with good returns, energy waste is still prevalent throughout organizations. Consider that: ● A 400% variation in energy use intensity of buildings in the United States exists that is not explained by age, technology, hours, size, climate. ● Little improvement of overall energy consumption has been seen although building components are 30% more efficient since 1980. ● Oversizing building fan systems, on average, occurs by 60%. ● Most chillers are oversized by 50–200%.Unfortunately, capturing energy waste has been hampered by a lack of focus on energy management. Too oftenenergy management is characterized as: ● Decentralized ● Poorly-coordinated ● Focused on paying bills & running the powerhouse ● Reactive ● Undervalued ● Considered capital intensiveOrganizations that have adopted effective energy management strategies and built successful energy programshave had different results. Consider the following: ● Ford Motor Company has saved over $75 million through effective energy management. ● USAA Real Estate has realized a 5% annual energy savings and increased the asset value of a California building by $1.5 million due to energy efficiency upgrades. ● Eastman Kodak saved more than $8.6 million in operating costs in 2002 from its energy management efforts. ● Hines estimates the difference in operational costs between its energy efficient buildings and inefficient buildings at more than $13 million. ● Fairfax County Public Schools estimates an annual energy savings of $4.5 million from energy efficiency improvements.Recent studies by Innovest Strategic Value Advisors (see below) found that leaders in energy managementachieved superior stock and financial performance over laggards in energy management.The difference betweenthe leaders and laggards is significant: ● Real estate investment sector — over 3,400 basis points difference ● Retail food sector — 1700 basis points difference ● Retail merchandising — 7100 basis points difference 10 Implementing ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard, A Practitioner’s Guide, Copyright © 2011, UL DQS Inc.
