-   里程碑式国际能源标准ISO 50001,自2011年发布以来首次修订,以反映当前行业的洞察力

-   英国标准协会(BSI)可持续发展部门负责人警告说,所有领域各组织都要应对气候变化和能源成本飙升的“完美风暴”

各种规模的组织都正面临着削减能源使用的压力,政府、监管机构和消费者对每个组织都制定能源管理政策的要求日益增长。

英国标准协会(BSI)对原来的能源管理体系国际标准进行了修订,推出了BS EN ISO 50001 : 2018这项标准。更新版借鉴了全球能源管理专家的知识和经验,为各组织降低能源成本、提高恢复力、遵守法律及可持续发展提供了循序渐进的指导。

该项标准概述了被认为是当前全球最佳规程的能源管理流程,并提供了一份用于制定政策、流程、程序和具体的能源任务,以实现组织能源目标的活动清单。它要求每个组织确定期望的能源绩效,并努力实现既定目标。

BSI可持续发展部负责人大卫·法斯克(David Fatscher)说:“不可预测的天气模式和不断增长的能源成本将成为各组织的完美风暴。各行各业的企业均将应对气候变化的货币和环境成本列为他们最关心的问题之一。

“ISO 50001最初发布于2011年,旨在用通俗易懂的英语解决当今和未来可克服的能源挑战,并以系统的方式对其进行管理。在过去七年中,技术、法规环境和科学知识都发生了显著变化,而这次的标准更新也承认了这种转变。

“我们知道现状是不可持续的,因此我们就组织该如何提高其财务绩效、加强合规性以及如何将能源管理融入组织的各个方面提供了指导。

“最重要的是:降低能源成本对组织来说是双赢的,他们可以降低财务支出,同时最大限度地减少碳足迹。ISO 50001可以帮助各种类型和规模的组织建立持续改进能源的过程。”

ISO 50001使得各组织更加了解自己使用的能源类型,更重要的是,自己浪费了多少能源以及浪费的成本。该项标准提供了降低能耗的工具,从而降低了成本,使其更具竞争力。

标准中的指南改善了对能源法律、法规和整体气候变化减缓目标的遵守情况;事实上,通过ISO 50001认证仍然是符合英国节能机会计划(ESOS)要求的、经批准的合规途径。

重要的是,ISO 50001并未规定各组织应制定怎样的能源目标,或应以何种形式展现其能源绩效的改进情况;相反,它认识到每个组织的不同,承认能源目标应是内部关注的问题。ISO 50001的制定是为了支持组织实现这一目标,而非强加于它们身上。

2018更新版本取代了2011年的版本,与之相比,针对能源绩效的相关概念提供了更清楚的说明,并且更加强调领导在推动能源管理政策方面的责任。它还改进了与ISO 14001及其他管理改进标准的兼容性,并修订了关于数据收集和规范化的部分。

BS EN ISO 50001 : 2018 能源管理体系要求与指南已于8月23日(周四)发布。

Spiralling energy costs and climate change spur major revision of international standard for energy performance

-       Landmark international energy standard, ISO 50001, revised for the first time since 2011 to reflect current industry insight

-       BSI’s Head of Sustainability warns of a ‘perfect storm’ of climate change and surging energy costs for organizations in all sectors 

Organizations large and small are facing pressure to cut their energy use, with demands from governments, regulatory bodies, and consumers increasingly necessitating that every organization has in place an energy management policy.

BSI, the business standards company, has revised the original global standard for energy management systems, BS EN ISO 50001: 2018. Drawing on the knowledge and experience of energy management experts globally, the standard has been updated to provide step-by-step guidance on how an organization can reduce its energy costs, become more resilient, comply with legislation and grow more sustainably.

The standard outlines the energy management processes considered to be the current best practice globally and provides a shortlist of activities for establishing policies, processes, procedures and specific energy-tasks to meet an organization’s energy objectives. It requires an organization to define the desired energy performance, and work towards achieving the stated objective.

David Fatscher, Head of Sustainability at BSI, said: “Unpredictable weather patterns and ever-increasing energy costs have created a perfect storm for organizations. Businesses across a wide range of sectors regularly cite the monetary and environmental costs of addressing climate change as one of their number one concerns.

“ISO 50001 first published in 2011 to address in plain English the surmountable energy challenges of today and tomorrow – and to manage them in a systematic way. Technology, the regulatory environment and scientific knowledge have all changed markedly in the last seven years, and this update of the standard acknowledges that transformation.

“We know that the status quo is unsustainable, so guidance is given on how an organization can improve its financial performance, bolster its compliance, and how energy management can be integrated into every aspect of an organization.

“The bottom line is this: reducing energy costs is a win-win for organizations, who can achieve lower financial outgoings whilst minimizing their carbon footprint. ISO 50001 can assist organizations of all shapes and sizes in establishing a process for continual energy improvement.”

ISO 50001 increases an organization’s understanding of what types of energy they use, and crucially, how much they are wasting and the cost of that waste. The standard provides tools to reduce energy consumption, thus lowering costs and enabling an organization to become more competitive. 

The guidance in the standard improves compliance with energy legislation, regulation and overall climate change mitigation goals; indeed, certification to ISO 50001 continues to be an approved compliance route to meeting the requirements of the UK Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

Importantly, ISO 50001 does not dictate what an organization’s energy targets should be or how an organization’s energy performance improvement should be demonstrated; rather, it recognizes that every organization is different, with energy targets being an internal concern. ISO 50001 was created to support organizations in this goal rather than to impose.   

The updated standard provides greater clarification on concepts related to energy performance and has a stronger emphasis on the responsibility of leadership in driving an energy management policy than the 2011 version of this standard, which the 2018 version supersedes. It also has improved compatibility with ISO 14001 and other management improvement standards, and an amended section on data collection and normalization.
