ISO 50001 is a voluntary standard for designing, implementing and maintaining an energy management system. It is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.
ISO 50001 standard requires an organization to conduct an energy review (analyze energy data, identify areas of significant energy use and identify areas for energy performance improvement), establish an energy baseline, establish energy objectives and targets that are measurable and have timelines for achievement, establish an action plan to achieve energy objectives and targets, implement the action plan, check performance, monitor, document and report all the above.
