What is the DIN EN ISO 50001?

DIN EN ISO 50001 is a globally valid norm, established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The DIN EN ISO 50001 is an internationally acknowledged standard for energy management.

Objectives of the DIN EN ISO 50001

The DIN EN ISO 50001 norm aims to support companies and organizations with building systems and processes to improve energy-related performances. ISO 50001 is a framework for companies that wants to optimize their energy usage and management. With the implementation of the ISO 50001, unused energy potentials are going to be used and energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions are reduced. Thus, the energy management system in accordance to the ISO 50001 contributes to environmental and climatic protection.

Who needs a energy management system in accordance to the ISO 50001?

To improve the energy management system of a company or organization systematically, the energy flows of the company, for example the energy usage and consumption, have to get recorded and evaluated. This records and evaluations in all procedures and areas are fundamental for the improvement of the energy efficiency. Therefore, the usage of an energy management system, in accordance to the ISO 50001 standards, can be relevant for companies of every area, given that great amounts of energy are consumed and that energy is a crucial part of the company’s expenses.

Structures of the DIN EN ISO 50001

The structure of the DIN EN ISO 50001 resembles the one of other management norms that pursue the standards of the ISO. That is why the structure of the ISO 9001 (quality management system) and the ISO 14001 (environmental management system) resemble the ISO 50001, too. The advantage of this consistent structure is that the ISO 50001 norm can be easily integrated and implemented into existing management systems with little effort.

Advantages of the ISO 50001

A certification in accordance to the DIN EN ISO 50001 gives a company many advantages. The certificate in accordance to the ISO 50001 shows that an optimized energy management is aspired and implemented. Another advantage of an ISO 50001 certificate is that energy-intensive companies, with an energy cost percentage of at least 14% of the gross profit and a power consumption of at least 10 Gwh/a, can request a reduction of the EEG reallocation charge. Within the company itself, the certification in accordance to the ISO 50001 ensures that the power consumption (and thus expenses) are reduced, due to measurements and guiding of the energy. Moreover, an improved energy efficiency can be achieved all over the supply chain. A certification enhances business opportunities and supports legal regulations from energy policies. Furthermore, new energy efficient technologies can be rated and even prioritised with the help of the ISO 50001.

Differences between the ISO 50001 and ISO 14001

ISO 50001 is a norm that solely covers areas related to energy. DIN EN ISO 50001 is supposed to help you to introduce new energy policies in your company and thus, reduce energy consumption and costs. To achieve these, the basic energy needs to be recorded and evaluated. Additionally, a energy management system in accordance to the ISO 50001 is going to help to implement an energy policy that is gonna help you with the realization of the objectives. Whereas the ISO 14001 is a norm that deals with all environmental-relevant influences of a company or organization.
