Step 3 - Implementation
Once objectives have been agreed, structures have been put in place and data collected, it is time to decide on which EEMs (Energy Efficiency Measures) to implement. It is vital to consider and compare all potential EEMs to ensure that those with the greatest financial and non-financial benefits to the business are realized at minimum cost (including indirect cost such as business disruption, unanticipated maintenance, etc.). Only then should a business case be established for the selected EEMs, maximizing the likelihood that they will be approved by senior management. The implementation stage concludes with consideration of how to procure and implement an EEM.
Link to ISO 50001
An organization with an ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System must use technological or procedural controls to reduce its energy use. Training, control of documentation and communication are all key elements of ISO 50001 certification that are not specifically referenced in this toolkit.
