ISO 5001 Energy Management

A new ISO standard for energy management, whose draft has been approved, could be expected to be published as an International Standard in 2011.

The ISO Standard 50001 will incorporate elements of both the ISO 9001 Quality Standard and ISO 14001 Environmental Standard. The Standard will be introduced in order for organizations to manage energy which could potentially affect up to 60% of the worlds energy consumption.

Implementation of this standard will address certain factors such as utilizing existing energy consuming resources, focus on the implementation of efficient energy technologies, and fuse energy efficiency into management practices.
