When a company increases its energy efficiency by using an energy management system, it not only saves energy costs, it can save even more. This is due to the fact that many legislatures promote the commitment of companies to reduce energy consumption in various ways. E.g. in Germany there is a peak compensation as well as targeted financing options.
An energy management system is required to be able to determine and document the potential for optimizing energy efficiency and reducing costs in your company. The results of such a system offer you, in form of measures and investment bases, a decision-making aid to reach your energy goals. However, mere certification according to ISO 50001 is not enough. It is advisable to use the PDCA cycle to establish a tool for continuous analysis and optimization in the company.
In the context of energy management and also in DIN EN ISO 50001 and 16001, the term PDCA cycle is often mentioned in order to characterize work organization and planning. More precisely, this problem-solving process comes from quality management and is based on the 4 letters that give it its name.
In the first step, "Plan", the desired goals and processes are defined and the general energy policy in the company is determined.
In the next step, “Do”, these processes are introduced and then monitored and measured in the subsequent “check”. In addition, the monitoring also includes the energy policy principles, the strategic and operational energy goals, the legal requirements and the energy management system in general.
In the final "Act" step, the derived optimization steps are implemented and improvements to the existing measures are initiated.
Energy management has developed into a complex task that has gained in importance due to rising costs and political framework conditions. Take a big step forward with an energy management system certified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 and improve your energy-relevant systems and processes.
Eco²lot supports you on your way from the implementation of the energy management system according to DIN EN ISO 50001 to certification and continuous improvement.
