ISO 50001 energy management standard is a proven framework designed to provide facilities of all types and sizes the management system structure to improve its energy performance. Facilities can improve their energy performance by reducing energy consumption, reducing energy use and improving energy efficiency, thereby significantly cutting energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 7,300 sites worldwide achieved ISO 50001 certification by May 2014—increasing 234% in just over a year. The growth of ISO 50001 is expected to accelerate as an increasing number of companies integrate ISO 50001 into their corporate sustainability strategies and supplier requirements.

 

What is the purpose of ISO 50001?

  • To provide a framework for managing energy performance.

  • Provide a systematic approach to set and reach organizational energy use and consumption goals.

  • Provide organizations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve energy performance.

  • The cornerstone for improving energy performance.

    • Energy performance = Measurable results related to energy efficiency, energy use and energy consumption.

Why consider ISO 50001?

  • ISO 50001 has been designed solely for the management of energy.

  • Energy management is often overlooked with ISO 14001.

  • Most companies do not truly understand how much energy they currently use and how much money they can potential save by implementing an EnMS.

  • Forces companies to establish baselines and identify areas for significant improvements in energy performance.

  • Encourages companies to look into renewable energy sources.

  • ISO 50001 intends to help organizations:

    • Better manage their existing significant energy uses.

    • Promote energy management best practices.

    • Evaluate and prioritize the implementation of new energy-efficient technologies or OFIs.

    • Integrate an EnMS with other management systems.

      • Examples: environmental, health and safety.

Benefits of ISO 50001 Certification

  • Realization of energy cost savings

  • Maximize the use of energy sources and assets

  • Reduced energy consumption

  • increased energy efficiency

  • increase energy performance

  • Reduced environmental impact

API Q1 and API Q2 are two specifications which define the quality management system requirements for petroleum and natural gas manufacturing and service supply organizations, respectively. Both specifications provide a consistent foundation for both upstream and downstream users and facilitates the ability to consistently provide products and services which meet or exceed customer, statutory and regulatory requirements. Certified companies must focus on developing, implementing, validating, and improving each of their processes, with these processes linked together to form a continuous management system which is both effective and improved.

More than 1,500 companies have been certified to both API Q1 and API Q2 with an anticipated global mandate by 2016. API Q2 is currently a requirement for most large industry players and the specifications have been recently updated to incorporate additional requirements for both manufacturing and service companies in both sectors.

What is the purpose of API Q1 and API Q2?

  • Provide a consistent quality management system foundation for manufacturing and service companies in the petroleum and natural gas industries.

  • Promote consistency and reliability in the manufacturing and service sectors of both industries

  • Manage risk throughout the entire petroleum and natural gas sector

Why API Q1 or API Q2 in lieu of ISO9001?

  • API Q1 and API Q2 build on ISO9001 as a foundational standard, and are designed specifically to address additional critical risk areas within the petroleum and natural gas industries

  • More aligned with a Risk Based Management System

  • Forces companies to develop robust contingency plans

    • Supported by Key Performance Indicators and actual performance

  • More stringent controls on preventive maintenance of critical equipment and materials

    • Schedules, procedures and training required
