ISO 50001 and the energy transition
Arnaud Gheysens of Teeo gave an interview in L’Usine Nouvelle. Here is the summary :
The energy transition is at the heart of social and political concerns. Main driver in this area, European Union is stepping up action to fight against global warming. DDADUE law falls within this context.
Adopted in 2013, it requires companies with more than 250 persons or whose annual turnover exceeds € 50 million (or with a balance sheet which exceeds € 43 million) to carry out an energy audit of their facilities before December 5, 2015.
The law provides for the exemption from audit for all companies that have implemented an energy management system (EMS) ISO 50001 certified. If the audit allows a one-time state places its energy situation, ISO 50001 management system based on three pillars:
- An energy policy that sets objectives and indicators
- The collect of energy data via a System Energy Management Information
- An Energy Manager guarantor of reporting and monitoring improvement actions,
helps sustain the gains and sustainably improve the energy performance of the facilities. ISO 50001 defines a regulated framework to set up and run a reliable and relevant EMS.
