The energy industry is an essential driver of industrial growth and a crucial sector in today's economy. Technological innovations and the growing demand for sustainable energy will continue shaping the energy sector. Energy companies will need to keep up with these changes to stay ahead.
The energy sector is undergoing a vast transformation as we move from a fossil fuel-based system to a net zero, distributed, and digitally controlled energy system. It's not a question of whether we embrace the transition to a low-carbon grid but how we manage the growth.
But what if your business is not in the EaaS (Energy as a Service) or renewable energy sub-sectors such as Solar, Hydropower, Geothermal, Photovoltaics, or Wind Power?
Energy is a critical constituent in most companies, and its usage can have significant cost implications, too, even for SMEs. The rising fuel and power costs are incredibly challenging times for many businesses. ISO certifications will help you expertly manage your projects' complex requirements, effectively employ your assets, and ensure minimal energy costs.
Benefits of ISO Certification for Energy Management:
The most common ISO standards for the energy industry include:
ISO 9001: ISO 9001 is the international standard for the quality management of businesses. The aim of ISO 9001 is to give improved product, process, and service quality within a company. It can lead to increased productivity through streamlining current working practices. ISO 9001 is compatible with other management systems, including ISO 14001.
ISO 14001: ISO 14001 is the standard specifying the requirements for formulating and maintaining an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). ISO 14001 focuses on controlling a company's environmental aspects and how company activities, products, and services interact with the environment.
ISO 50001: ISO 50001 is the International Energy Management Systems (EnMS) standard. It applies to any company– whatever your size, industry, or location- managing your energy, including procurement and use. ISO 50001 specifies requirements to establish, implement, maintain and improve an energy management system. This enables a business to continually take a systematic approach to improve energy performance, energy efficiency, and energy conservation.
ISO 45001: ISO 45001 ensures your business has a management system in place to reduce health & safety risks and protect workers from potential harm while increasing profitability at the same time.
ISO 27001: ISO 27001 Information and Data Security Management assist companies in controlling business security systems. This standard systematically examines your business information security risks, taking account of the threats and vulnerabilities, providing a model for implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining, and improving an Information Security Management System.
