Re: ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems - Requirements

wording " When planning for contingency or emergency situations or potential disasters," is still not clear to me???

next part is understood to me is procurement should take care of the energy performance in determining......

Re: ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems - Requirements

Hi Folks,

I have a question regarding the energy baseline (4.4.4).

ISO 50001 requires that "the energy baseline(s) shall be maintained and recorded".

I thought a lot about it, and I cannot figure it out: How do you maintain a baseline?

Any hint or advice would be great.

Thanks a lot!

The following is from the Committee Draft of the ISO 50004 document <Guidance for the implementation, maintenance and improvement of an energy management system> being developed to assist with ISO 50001 implementation:

Quote:
The energy baseline should be established over a period which is representative of the organization’s operation or regulations such as legislation. During this period associated energy variables should be recorded in appropriate intervals to register the baseline conditions for further comparison to the reporting period conditions.

The baseline might be an absolute amount of energy used in a given period, e.g. kWh per year. It might also be expressed as a ratio such as kWh per unit of production (see footnote to 4.4.5 EnPIs below for a caution on these types of indicators and baselines). Ideally the baseline is derived through statistical analysis of energy use against its relevant variables. The output from the energy review includes the SEUs and their relevant variables that affect them which provide important information for baseline development. This is used as a basis for comparison with future performance in conjunction with EnPIs (see 4.4.5 below).

Energy baseline is a quantitative reference that you achieved in a specified period (year) and against which you will be comparing your year-on-year energy performance. Baseline energy consumption can also be considered as an internal benchmark upon which your Energy Performance Indicators would base. However, you yourself has to decide and declare (record) the baseline.

Maintaining energy baseline means you will not change the baseline energy consumption (e.g. xx kWh/ unit product) as well as the period (e.g. 2010) to which it refers. The baseline is also used to evaluate the effectiveness of the projects/ management programmes implemented in order to reduce the significant energy/ env. aspects.

Hope this helps.

Question Re: ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems - Requirements

Hi,

Can organization develop required documents like Energy policy, baseline, PIs, Training, MR, Internal Audit and Management review to be certified and continue with its Energy review, preparation of energy plan and health check of plan maintenance as well as equipment for further improvement?

Everything has to be complete and functioning with required supporting records in place
Thanks to Randy for your informative Post and/or Attachment!
