Using energy efficiently helps organisations save money as well as helping to conserve resources and tackle climate change. ISO 50001 supports organisations in all sectors to use energy more efficiently, through the development of an energy management system (EnMS).
The Energy Management System standard ISO 50001:2011, is a powerful management tool that gives businesses the capability to set up processes and procedures, that aid in the reduction of energy consumption and simultaneously improve their energy efficiency. Through integrating the requirements of ISO 50001:2011 into already certified quality and environmental management systems, businesses can take advantage of the synergies between the systems and significantly reduce the operating costs of their products and services.
ISO 50001:2011 applies to all businesses regardless of size, type or sector and provides a framework of requirements for organisations to:
ABIUD Solutions gives the opportunity to any kind/type of company to implement Energy Management System and get certified with Accredited Certification Body for ISO 50001:2011.
Energy Saving is in principle the results of the reduction of the total amount of consumed energy without seriously affecting the process or the end results.
Using less energy any company has lots of benefits such as:
Energy conservation refers to reducing energy through using less of an energy service. Engaging your employees in energy conservation and changing the workplace behaviour, are important steps to enhancing efficiency and saving costs for the company’s targets and achievements.
Energy conservation differs from efficient energy use, which refers to using less energy for a constant service. For example, driving less (short route) is an example of energy conservation. Energy conservation and efficiency are both energy reduction techniques.
Saving energy means decreasing the amount of energy used while achieving a similar outcome of end use. Generating energy requires precious natural resources (for example coal, oil or gas). Therefore, using less energy helps us to preserve these resources and make them last longer in the future.
Our company provides advice and solutions for Energy Saving usage for organisations and companies.
Building Energy Efficiency is when we use less energy to provide the same service. When you replace an appliance, such as a refrigerator, lamps or office equipment, with a more energy-efficient model, the new equipment provides the same service, but uses less energy. This saves you money on your energy bill and reduces the amount of greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere.
Energy efficiency is not energy conservation.
For example: Turning off an unnecessary light is energy conservation. Replacing an incandescent lamp with a compact fluorescent lamp (which uses much less energy to produce the same amount of light) is energy efficiency. Both efficiency and conservation can reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Energy efficiency has proved to be a cost-effective strategy for building economies without necessarily increasing energy consumption.
There are many motivations to improve energy efficiency. Reducing energy use reduces energy costs and may result in a financial cost saving to consumers if the energy savings offset any additional costs of implementing an energy efficient technology. Reducing energy use, is also seen as a solution to the problem of reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Our company provides such solutions for improving Energy Efficiency for buildings of companies.
Energy Performance Certificates (EPC)
Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) gives information about the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) of a building. All buildings new, sold or rented require an EPC according to: ”The Regulation of the Energy Performance of Buildings Laws of 2006 – 2012”. Each EPC is valid for ten years.
EPC are issued only by qualified experts whose qualifications and duties are defined in the relevant regulations.
Energy Performance Certificates contain:
The Energy Efficiency grade of the Certificate of a building or building unit, for sale or rent, must be declared in all the commercials. The rating measures the energy and carbon emission efficiency of the building using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient.
The certificate can either be for a whole building or part of a building that has been designed or altered to be used separately.
The following buildings don’t need an EPC when they are built, rented or sold:
1. preservable buildings
2. Industrial, crafts buildings and warehouses
3. agricultural buildings
4. buildings with total useful floor area of less than 50m2
Our company provides Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) for buildings and houses issued and registered by a qualified expert.
