Energy Management Systems ISO 50001

OBJECTIVE

The new ISO 50001:2011 "Energy Management Systems - Requirements and guidelines for use" standard is the internationally recognized standard for the implementation of EMS.
The standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to ensure that it complies with its energy policy and demonstrates this conformity to others, by self-assessment and self-declaration of conformity or by third-party certification of its energy management system. The standard describes the requirements for continuous improvement in the form of a more efficient and more sustainable use of energy, without taking into account its form. However, the standard does not define specific energy performance criteria.
The law will help companies wishing to adopt it to organize systems and processes aimed at improving energy efficiency: management that leads to economic benefits and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Adopting an Energy Management System (EMS) allows organizations, which have embarked on sustainable development paths, to put in place a systemic approach for a more efficient and sustainable use of energy, regardless of its type (from D. Lgs. 115/08 electricity, natural gas, fuel for cooling or heating, coal, lignite, peat, biomass, etc.) aimed at the continuous improvement of its energy performance. The standard also hopes for a real change in individual and collective habits, in order to integrate energy efficiency considerations into daily decision-making processes.
KEISDATA supports companies in the design and development of the EMS in accordance with ISO 50001.


METHODOLOGY

Legislative Decree 115/08, implementation of Directive 2006/32/EC concerning energy end-use efficiency and energy services refers to the adoption of a specific technical standard on 'energy management systems' and hopes, "In order to promote a process of increasing the level of objectivity and reliability for measures and systems aimed at improving energy efficiency" the definition of a certification procedure for the EMS.

The approach

KEISDATA offers:

  • a Regulatory Impact Analysis contextualised on the company reality and a system of access to constantly updated flows and regulatory frameworks
  • The legislative obligations that the organization must respect and other requirements to which it may be subject are considered.
  • a Risk Management methodology that allows to assess the business risk deriving from energy consumption and regulatory risk:
    • The company's energy situation is analyzed, the main energy consumption factors are identified, the interventions for the optimization of energy efficiency are assessed and prioritized.
  • a Knowledge Management methodology for the engineering of standard requirements through computerized systems for the management of procedural flows, activities, documents, deadlines etc.

In the application of the expected requirements, the connections with the UNI EN ISO 9001 (Quality management systems) and the UNI EN ISO 14001 (Environmental management systems) will be highlighted in order to identify possible synergies also for an aggregated certification.

The phases

The EMS is developed in line with the requirements of the Quality and Environmental standards, underlining the connections and developing synergies with the other systems present in the company in order to aggregate and optimize the systems. The realization and implementation is divided into:

Planning

  • establish an Energy Policy;
  • identify energy aspects and legal obligations;
  • define an Energy Baseline;
  • establish energy targets and related targets, including:
    • the identification of new technological solutions
    • energy improvement based on the efficiency of the plants and of the whole organization;

Implementation

  • correctly allocate the human, physical and financial resources assigned to energy management;
  • increase the awareness of the organization by training the resources;
  • communicate and inform internal staff and define external communication plans;
  • implement operational controls on structures, facilities, resources and services.

Monitoring

  • establish a monitoring program for energy management, which also allows:
    • confirm the results obtained with the new technological solutions in place;
  • assess compliance with legal obligations;
  • manage and monitor the exchange on the energy market:
    • of CO² (ET),
    • of Energy Efficiency Certificates (TEE),
    • of the Green Certificates (CV);
  • identify and manage non-compliance;
  • carry out internal checks on the energy management system;
  • carry out periodic energy balances through monitoring systems and plant performance indicators.

System review to periodically evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the system.
KEISDATA supports the Company in managing relations with the Certification Body.


OUTPUT

  • Initial Energy Analysis
  • Regulatory Frameworks, Regulatory Check-lists
  • Energy Policy and EMS Manual
  • Baseline Energetics
  • Information, training and communication plans
  • Energy control procedures
  • Monitoring plans for energy consumption
  • Audit Reports, Review Report
  • Self declaration of conformity or Obtaining Certification

 

Emission Trading

OBJECTIVE

Starting from 1 January 2005, all the plants carrying out one of the activities indicated in Annex I of the European Directive 2003/87/EC EU-ETS (activities in the energy sector, production and processing of ferrous metals, mineral and pulp-making industry, paper and board) must limit their CO² emissions according to the national allocation plans and must be provided with specific authorization issued by the competent authorities. The operators of the plants in possession of such authorization in relation to these activities must be able to control and communicate the emissions annually. The goal that KEISDATA proposes is to provide support to companies in the management, monitoring and communication of GHG emissions data.


METHODOLOGY

The approach

KEISDATA supports the Company in the preparation of the procedure and in the management of the data necessary to keep under control the CO² emissions coming from the production plants, as well as in the communication to the Control Authorities.

The conditions for success

Maintain an effective and efficient interaction with all the company functions involved in the various phases in order to optimize the retrieval of data.

The phases

Identification of sources of gas emissions

  • identification of the business facilities that, in accordance with current legislation, can be considered sources of CO² emissions;
  • analysis of the plant, related activities, and technologies used.

Emissions monitoring

  • analysis audit for the verification of the corporate monitoring and reporting systems of GHG (Greenhouse Gases);
  • planning and definition of the set of data to be acquired for the correct and compliant monitoring of emissions;
  • definition of measurement equipment used for monitoring;
  • definition of data recording methods.

Data management and communication

  • definition of the methods for acquiring data from the various company functions;
  • processing and calculation of emission data;
  • preparation of the reporting system;
  • transmission of the annual declarations to the supervisory authorities.

Integration with the Environmental Management System

  • integration of the methodology with the EMS;
  • drafting of the specific procedure.

OUTPUT

  • Data management system in terms of quality and safety
  • Reporting model
  • EMS procedure for the management of CO² emissions
