Overview• What are energy management standards?• Who creates and promotes them?• Which is the best for business?• Who is using them?• How can I learn more?
What are energy management standards? • Energy Management Standards constitute a demonstrated effective policy tool and market- based mechanism to bring about sustainable energy efficiency in industry (UNIDO) • Energy management standards are being developed to provide organizations with a roadmap for ensuring that their energy use is as efficient as possible (BSI)
Who creates these standards? • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is the worlds largest developer and publisher of International Standards. • ISO is a network of the national standards institutes of 163 countries, one member per country, with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland, that coordinates the system. • ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors. ISO enables a consensus to be reached on solutions that meet both the requirements of business and the broader needs of society.
Who creates these standards? • CEN (European Committee for Standardization) is based in Brussels . • It is the only recognized European organization for the planning, drafting and adoption of European Standards in all areas of economic activity with the exemption of electrotechnology (CENELEC) and telecommunication (ETSI). • 32 National Members work together to develop voluntary European Standards (ENs). • Collaborates with ISO to ensure common text in EN and ISO standards.
What are energy management standards? • ISO 50001 Energy management systems. Requirements with guidance for use • EN 16001 Energy management systems. Requirements with guidance for use • EN 61970 Energy Management System Application Programme Interface • EN 15232 Implication of building automation, controls and building management • PAS 2030 Specification for the installation process; process management and service provision • EN 15358 Solid recovered fuels – quality management system Etc Etc Etc
Which is best for business • ISO 50001 • Why? » Modelled on existing ISO management system standards » Applicable to ALL organisations/sectors/countries » Requirements are common sense…if you really want to improve your energy performance » Our experience….it saves energy!!! » Companies across the globe are using it » An example…..
Benefits of ISO 50001• Save Energy » 5% - 37%• Save Money » £25,000 - £ 500,000 » €100,000,000 saved since 2005*• Reduce Carbon Footprint• Increases Credibility• Meets Shareholder Requirements*Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland
Non energy benefits ISO 50001 • Operational efficiencies • Cooperation between departments • Communication between departments • Improved organisational behaviour • Maintains legal compliance
It Works!• “The Site Energy Aspects Review process is a high value exercise for any site. The Energy Management System has facilitated in the development of a clear concise Energy management program”.Michael Madigan (Utilities Engineer) – Pfizer• “Energy management system certification has helped DePuy Ireland proactively focus on reducing its energy consumption and driving energy efficiency. The EnMS system has enabled the organisation to expand its operations in a more sustainable manner”Dónal Og Cusak (Energy Manager) – DePuy Ireland
It Works!• Energy management system certification has helped Diageo Baileys operations address its energy use in an extremely positive manner. Since engaging in the energy management certification process we have saved 25% on weekend energy costs alone.Evelyn Conlon (Risk Manager) - Diageo Baileys Global
Deploying ISO 50001 • The organisations using ISO 50001 now have control over their energy performance • They understand the business variables affecting it and can plan operations with this knowledge • They are improving their energy management performance in line with their capabilities • This is ensuring their success
Where’s next • More countries will “mandate” the use of ISO 50001 to achieve international commitments as regards energy • This approach is also ready used in EU and a number of pilot schemes in USA/CAN • Countries who were energy “rich/secure” are seeing the fallacy of ignoring energy management • We cannot continue to expect to have energy wastage • Its time to change our ways or change our world
