Implementing Energy Management Systems - ISO 50001

Energy is critical to organizational operations and can be a major cost to any business. Although organizations cannot control energy prices, government policies or the global economy, they can improve how their energy is managed.  

Along with rising energy costs, the effects of climate change and increasing GHG emissions, energy efficiency has become vital to the sustainability of every organization and business world-wide, providing a solution to address global warming, energy security and fossil fuel depletion.   

Implementing Energy Management Systems (EnMS, ISO 50001) will provide public and private sector organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance. 

Students who complete this program will receive a Certificate in  Implementing Energy Management Systems - ISO 50001. 

In collaboration with CSA Organization, we will explore in this two day course how to implement an energy management system using ISO 5000, enabling practitioners to build the necessary systems and processes to improve energy efficiency, reduce consumption and their associated costs, and improve overall energy performance in their organization's operations. 

By employing ISO 50001, you will be provided with a logical and consistent framework for identifying and implementing energy improvements, designed for any organizations. 

Topics to be covered are an overview of ISO 50001; Energy Management Systems Requirements; Energy Policy & Planning; Implementation & Operations; Checking, Monitoring and Auditing and Management Review.

The Course - Objectives and Outcomes

This two-day course provides guidance on how to implement an energy management system using the ISO 50001. It will enable practitioners to build the necessary systems and processes to improve energy efficiency, help reduce consumption and their associated costs and improve overall energy performance in their organization's operations.

An experienced energy management practitioner will serve as instructor and expert resource as you review the requirements of the standard with a focus on the practical demands of the implementation process. 

Through case studies and practical expercises you will gain an understanding of the various strategies and tactics you can employ to deal with typical constraints and solutions during the implementation process.
