"The Use of Software in Achieving ISO 50001" presented by Enerit CEO Paul Monaghan at the NSAI and Engineers Ireland seminar "The Future of Energy Management in Ireland: Best Practice and Standards in Energy Management".
The use of software in achieving ISO 50001 NSAI and Engineers Ireland Seminar:“The future of Energy Management in Ireland: Best Practice and Standards in Energy Management” Dublin , 18th October 2011 Paul F Monaghan PhD CEng FIEI
Agenda Background – software for ISO 9001/14001, Monitoring and Targeting (M&T) and BMS Requirements – interviewing large energy users about needs for ISO 50001 software Integration – with existing ISO 14001/9001 systems at large energy users Financial Decisions – "make, buy or subscribe" decisions – ROI & Value
Experience in ISO 50001 SoftwareOur focus is software for: How we deliver: Enerit software is for: Systematic energy Delivery over Internet - Sector: management Cloud (SaaS) Industry, Building Stocks. Automating all Monthly subscription (no aspects of ISO 50001 capital cost) Organisations: Medium and Large energy users, With ISO 50001 now or soon. Used by: Energy Managers, Energy Consultants. Where: Everywhere in the world
Innovating to meet the ISO standard in EnergyManagement from the beginning2011- ISO50001launchedglobally2009-EN16001 Resource & Enerit ISOlaunched Energy Efficiency 50001 Bureau for software Enerit software launched2005-IS 393 installed at sites Supermarketslaunched of a Regional (En 16001 Development software) Organization Enerit appointed energy consultants at large MNC’s (IS 393 software) Enerit Founded 2004 2006 2008 2010 2011
Background– software for ISO 9001/14001 Many ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 software products now Since mid-1990’s Worldwide use of products Internal solutions also are well established Core functionality: Document management Corrective actions (CAPA) Audit management
Background– software for M&T, BMS, Carbon Many Monitoring & Targeting software products Some Building Management Systems (BMS or BEMS) have data collection , as well as control Corporate Carbon and Energy Reporting systems are used by companies with a strong CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) These products do supply partial coverage of ISO 50001 requirements such as: monitoring; management review; communication
Background – summary Lot of software which touches aspects of ISO 50001 The questions are: What are the needs of medium & large energy users? What software gaps are there? What software requirements need to be delivered? Therefore we did: Market Research Requirements Gathering In 2006 & 2011
Requirements & Integration–interviewing large energy users about needs for ISO 50001 software

Financial:Make/Buy/Subscribe Decisions ROI and Value
Make/Buy/Subscribe Decisions Should you “make” – i.e. build it in-house? Should you “buy” a product, i.e. capital cost + annual maintenance? Should you subscribe for a product, i.e. monthly subscription?
Why “Make” it in-house? Main reason: “it costs nothing” This is true only if you consider your time and your colleagues’ time to be of no value.
Why “Buy” or “Subscribe”? What you see is what you get You have good cost control – upfront pricing Speed of implementation Tried and tested – others certified with product Guaranteed upgrade path - continuously improved You have a guaranteed maintenance Improvement suggestions from other customers Not dependent for coding on a single staff member Not dependent on internal IT team’s resources
“Buy” versus “Subscribe”? When you “buy”: You own the software You pay a capital cost upfront You pay maintenance each year (< subscription) Software installed on servers and pcs When you “subscribe”: You use the software as long as you want No upfront capital cost Only cost is monthly subscription Low risk to try out – if you don’t like, just stop paying Only need a web browser

ROI: The Value Question Is this of value to you? Think about: Pains – various people have today Time-savings – that people could make Extra Energy savings - possible with automation
Extra Energy Savings via AutomationActivity %?, kWh? Value, €Big projects better managedSmall projects not otherwise doneGetting actions done by others (not energyteam) – production staffAuto’d reminders: energy awarenessAllowing staff to see energy info, leaguetables, performance etc.Better organisation and speedCertainty about decisionsOther?
