ISO.org said:
ISO has just approved the creation of a project committee mandated to develop an international standard on energy management.
The standard will provide all types of organizations and companies a practical and widely recognized approach to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve their environmental performance by addressing both the technical and management aspects of rational energy use. The standard is intended to be broadly applicable to various sectors of national economies, including utility, manufacturing, commercial building, general commerce, and transportation sectors, and therefore, could have influence on as much as 60 % of the world’s energy demand.
ISO Secretary-General Alan Bryden commented: “The urgency to reduce GHG emissions, the reality of higher prices from reduced availability of fossil fuels, and the need to promote energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources, provide a strong rationale for developing this new standard building on the most advanced best practices and existing national or regional standards”.
Following the successful examples of the ISO 9000 series on quality management and the ISO 14000 series on environmental management, the project committee ISO/PC 242, Energy management, will consider the development of a standard containing relevant terms and definitions and providing management system requirements together with guidance for use, implementation, measurement and metrics.
The standard will be based on the continual improvement and Plan-Do-Check-Act approach utilized in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 to provide compatibility and integration opportunities.
Among the main benefits of the future standard are that it will:
  • provide organizations and companies (utilities, manufacturers, commerce, buildings, transportation, both private and public) with a well-recognized framework for integrating energy efficiency into their management practices
  • offer organizations with operations in more than one country a single, harmonized standard for implementation across the organization
  • provide a logical and consistent methodology for identifying and implementing improvements that may contribute to a continual increase in energy efficiency across facilities
  • assist organizations to better utilize existing energy consuming assets, thus reducing costs and/or expanding capacity
  • offer guidance on benchmarking, measuring, documenting, and reporting energy intensity improvements and their projected impact on reductions in GHG emissions
  • create transparency and facilitate communication on the management of energy, promote energy management best practices, thus reinforcing the value of good energy management behaviours
  • assist facilities in evaluating and prioritizing the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies
  • provide a framework for organizations to encourage suppliers to better manage their energy, thus promoting energy efficiency throughout the supply chain
  • facilitate the use of energy management as a component of GHG emission reduction projects.
The secretariat of ISO/PC 242 will be held jointly by the ISO members for the United States and for Brazil: ANSI (American National Standardization Institute) and ABNT (Associação Brasileira de Normas Técnicas).

ISO launches development of future standard on energy management

http://www.iso.org/iso/pressrelease.htm?refid=Ref1157

The first meeting of ISO’s new project committee PC 242 which is to develop an International Standard on energy management was held on 8-10 September in Washington, DC, USA.
The future ISO 50001 will establish a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities or entire organizations to manage energy. Targetting broad applicability across national economic sectors, the standard could influence up to 60 % of the world’s energy use.
The meeting was attended by delegates from the ISO national member bodies of 25 countries from all regions of the world, as well as representation from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), which has liaison status with PC 242. All the participating countries have existing activities on energy management and have a strong interest in also developing a harmonized solution at the international level.
As part of the proceedings, delegates described their various initiatives in detail. For example, a presentation was given by UNIDO on the preparatory work the organization has carried out to support the ISO process by researching energy management needs in developing countries.
This gave PC 242 an insight into the different policies and situations around the world which need to be taken into account in the development of a globally relevant International Standard for energy management.
Excellent progress was made in the technical discussions and a first working draft has already been created. A major point of discussion is the need to ensure compatibility with the existing suite of ISO management system standards. The committee therefore took the key decision to base the draft on the common elements found in all of ISO’s management system standards.
This will ensure maximum compatibility with key standards such as ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management.
The project committee is fully committed to an ambitious schedule and aims to have ISO 50001 ready for publication by the end of 2010.
ISO Secretary-General Alan Bryden commented: "This first meeting of PC 242 marks the launch of a new global approach to systematically address energy performance in organizations – pragmatically addressing energy efficiency and related climate change impacts. It is fully in line with and supportive of the global mobilization on these major challenges, and with the IEA-ISO position paper on the contribution of International Standards."

Re: ISO/PC 242 to develop International Standard for Energy Management

So, can you remind me then, which political affiliations are against energy conservation and better energy management?
I don't believe that you'll find folks that are against it. It is the actual process, responsibilities and implementation that makes it a political issue.

Just my view.

I want to leave it at that because I do not want to engage in a political tinted dialogue. I'm sure you'll understand.

Re: ISO/PC 242 to develop International Standard for Energy Management

To me, it is still unclear why the American ANSI MSE-2000 Standard never "took off".

Because it's called "Voluntary" and US business historically doesn't do other than the minimum to get by (mandatory/regulatory), the "decision makers" who would be involved in its use are totally inept when it comes to such things, and any "professionals" have other things on the front burner. Besides it's much more fun to blindly shoot in the dark than take a systemic approach to improvement.

ISO 50001 Planned for Energy Management


The first meeting of ISO's new project committee PC 242, which is developing an International Standard on energy management, was held last month in Washington, DC, USA.

The future ISO 50001 will establish a framework for industrial plants, commercial facilities, or entire organizations to manage energy. Targeting broad applicability across national economic sectors, the standard could influence up to 60% of the world's energy use.

The meeting was attended by delegates from the ISO national member bodies of 25 countries from all regions of the world, as well as, representation from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), which has liaison status with PC 242. All the participating countries have existing activities on energy management and have a strong interest in developing a harmonized solution at the international level.

As part of the proceedings, delegates described their various initiatives in detail. For example, a presentation was given by UNIDO on the preparatory work the organization has carried out to support the ISO process by researching energy management needs in developing countries.

The committee therefore made the key decision to base the draft on the common elements found in all of ISO's management system standards.

This will ensure maximum compatibility with key standards such as ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for environmental management. The project committee is committed to an ambitious schedule and aims to have ISO 50001 ready for publication by the end of 2010.
