大小规模的企业能否完成社会和环境目标，能源效率就是其中的关键。因此，普及ISO 50001也是德赛教授工作的重要一部分。她向我们介绍了一些在全球范围内普及ISO 50001的组织，包括清洁能源部长级会议（CEM）和联合国工业发展组织（UNIDO）。
清洁能源部长级会议是一个全球性奖励计划，旨在表彰取得能源管理成就，并采用ISO 50001解决了能源和气候挑战的领先组织。会议邀请获得ISO 50001认证的组织提交自身案例研究以获得相关认可。如果这听起来很像你的组织，那么你别错过了，清洁能源部长级会议现正接受
New draft of ISO 50001 energy management standard
Since 2011, organizations have been able to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption, thanks to ISO 50001.
Like all International Standards, ISO 50001 has come under periodic review to ensure that it continues to meet the rapidly changing needs of the energy sector. This work is being carried out by the ISO technical committee responsible for energy management and energy savings (ISO/TC 301), whose secretariat is held by ANSI, ISO’s member for the USA, in a twinning arrangement with the ISO member for China, SAC. Here, we explain the main changes with the help of Deann Desai, Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Convenor of the working group tasked with revising the standard.
“Perhaps the most important change for the 2018 version is the incorporation of the high-level structure, which provides for improved compatibility with other management system standards.” The high-level structure (HLS) is a simple and effective concept. “Because organizations often implement a number of management system standards, the use of a shared structure, as well as many of the same terms and definitions, helps to keep things simple,” explains Prof. Desai. This is particularly useful for those organizations that choose to operate a single (sometimes called “integrated”) management system that can meet the requirements of two or more management system standards simultaneously.
Prof. Desai continues: “There are other improvements in the 2018 version to help ensure that the key concepts related to energy performance are clear for small and mid-sized businesses (SMEs).” This is important in encouraging uptake of the use of management system standards by SMEs, which sometimes assume that the benefits of International Standards mostly apply to multinational businesses. That’s not the case, with SMEs around the world using ISO standards to build customer confidence and reduce costs across all aspects of their business, including meeting regulation requirements.
With energy efficiency playing such a key role in meeting social and environmental targets for all sizes of business, promoting uptake of ISO 50001 is also an important part of Prof. Desai’s work. She tells us about a number of different initiatives that have helped increase the use of ISO 50001 around the world, including the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The Clean Energy Ministerial is a global awards programme that recognizes leading organizations for their energy management achievements and use of ISO 50001 to address energy and climate challenges. Organizations certified to ISO 50001 are invited to submit case studies for recognition. If that sounds like your organization, then you should know that the Clean Energy Ministerial is now accepting entries for its 2018 Energy Management Leadership Awards.
