BS ISO 50001 will help you implement the processes necessary to understand your baseline energy usage, put in place action plans, targets and energy performance indicators for reducing consumption and identify, prioritise, and record opportunities for improving energy performance.


Who is BS ISO 50001 Energy Management System relevant to?


BS ISO 50001 is suitable for any organisation – whatever your size, sector or geographical location. It is particularly relevant if you operate in an energy intensive industry or one facing caps or carbon emissions regulation.


It is also an important tool for ESOS Compliance. ESOS is the Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme.


Benefits of BS ISO 50001 Energy Management


Using BS ISO 50001 Energy Management as a framework to manage and reduce your energy consumption can lead:-


• Reduced costs

Reduce energy costs via a structured approach to identifying, measuring and managing your energy consumption.


• Reduced carbon emissions

Meet government targets and stakeholder expectations now and in the future.


• Greater security of energy supply

Understand your energy risk exposure and identify areas of the organisation at greatest risk.


• Improved business performance

Drive greater productivity by systematically identifying and prioritising the most cost effective technical solutions to reduce energy consumption.


• Integration with existing management systems

Align your Energy Management System (EnMS) with existing management systems for incremental benefit. For example ISO 9001 & ISO 14001.



Are you interested in gaining ISO 50001 Accreditation for you organisation and reaping the benefits that it will bring?

The FiT (Feed in Tariff) and RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) are financial inducements introduced by the government several years ago to promote the take-up of renewable energy technologies. They are effectively subsidies to encourage the use of renewable energy technologies. The rates are set by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), formerly known as the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).


Since the Industrial Revolution, which started in Great Britain in 1760, the UK and all other industrialised nations have been almost entirely dependent on finite supplies of fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas for fuel. Furthermore, the use of these fossil fuels produces greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide which cause harm to the environment.
