Energy management and efficiency
Effective energy management can lead to reduced energy use and costs and help meet environmental and energy requirements. It also demonstrates to customers, suppliers and investors that your organization is using best practice to make informed decisions and create practical targets.
BSI’s energy standards can inform best practice on a wide range of activities from setting up energy management systems to performing energy efficiency calculations and creating benchmarks.
ISO 50000 series of energy management standards
The ISO 50000 series was created to provide a comprehensive suite of standards offering good practice in energy management. The standards can be used together, or independently and are suitable for any size of organisation.
BS EN ISO 50001 Energy management systems. Requirements with guidance for use.
BS EN ISO 50001 stipulates the requirements for an energy management system. Designed to make the most from energy technology, this standard helps management to reduce their energy consumption, while boosting their overall energy conservation.

BS ISO 50004 Guidance for implementation, maintenance and improvement of an energy management system - this standard can be used to either help implement ISO 50001 or to provide a scent of good practice guidelines to get started on implementing an energy management system.
BS ISO 50006 Measuring energy performance using energy baselines (EnBs) and energy performance indicators (EnPIs) – general principles and guidance – This new standard can be used by organisations whether they have an energy management system and can be used at the facility, system, process or equipment level, or for the evaluation of individual energy performance improvement actions.
BSI ISO 50015 Measurement and verification of energy performance in organisation – this standard aims to provide greater credibility around the end M&V result and the measurement of energy performance or energy performance improvement.
