BS EN 16001 Energy Management System
Increasing your energy efficiency requires the identification of where energy is used, where it is wasted and where any energy saving measures will have the most effect. BS EN 16001:2009 helps you to do this by taking the form of requirements and guidance intended to help you reduce both costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is achieved by helping you develop and implement an energy management system, which includes policy and objectives that take into account legal or other specific requirements and information about their significant energy aspects. BS EN 16001:2009 is intended to apply to all types and sizes of organisations and can be integrated with, or used independently of, any other management system. The structure of BS EN 16001 is similar to that of the Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001.
The level of detail and complexity of individual energy management systems will depend on a number of factors, including the size of the organisation, the scope of its energy management system and the nature of its activities and products or services. The same is true of the documentation and resources required to implement the energy management system. The standard itself comprises both the requirements include the need for an official, publicly available energy policy which includes a commitment for achieving improved energy performance; the identification and review of an organisation's energy aspects which highlight those elements of an organisation's activities, goods or services that can affect energy usage or energy consumption, as well as its legal obligations.
BS EN 16001 – It's Key Benefits
BS EN 16001 recognises that energy management encompasses a range of issues, including those with both strategic and competitive implications. Successfully implementing this standard assures clients and stakeholders that you have an appropriate energy management system in place. Whilst BS EN 16001 does not specify particular performance criteria with respect to energy management, it does provide a framework for continuous improvement of an organisation's energy efficiency and sustainable use. It enables an organisation to take a systematic approach to the continuous improvement of its energy efficiency.
