ISO 50001 Structured Energy Management Approach

The new International Standart for Energy Management ISO 50001 is based around the classical Plan-Do-Check-Act approach to managment systems.  Crucially the standard is an improvement on other standards as it places a heavier emphasis on energy improvements as opposed to documentation.

Typically people comment that you cannot manage what you dont measure, but this should really be phrased that you cannot manage what you dont understand.

Structured energy management can only really be implemented when you fully understand your energy uses and needs to an adequate level and in the porcess of developing this understanding you will identify the opportunities for improvement.
