EMS, Energy Management System

ITCL supports manufacturing companies in the process of Energy Management System implantation and ISO 50.001 certification.

An Energy Management System (EMS) is the part of the management system that covers energy policy definition and implantation in a company, but it also manages every process in which energy is consumed.

 As it is described by the International Organization for Standardization, ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continuous improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 standard provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:

  • Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
  • Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
  • Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
  • Measure the results
  • Review how well the policy works
  • Continuously improve energy management.

An EMS is and strategic tool that helps company managers both to evaluate and to minimize energy consumption, energy costs and environmental impact, increasing productivity and competitiveness.

ISO 50.001 certification is one of the requirements defined by energy efficiency directive (2012/27/UE) in order to manage energy consumption in industrial companies, avoiding regular audits. ITCL also support companies training their staff on energy management. In this particular issue, our background in manufacturing companies can be highlighted
