Implementing an Energy Management System based on ISO 50001:2018

Using a step-by-step process, this two-day course provides guidance on how to implement an ISO 50001 energy management system (EnMS). The course enables organizations to establish the systems and processes necessary to improve energy performance, energy efficiency, and help reduce energy consumption and costs.

A skilled instructor will review the requirements of the standard from an implementation perspective, while covering a step-by-step implementation approach. The course includes guidance on developing an implementation plan, creating necessary documentation, monitoring an energy management system and achieving continual improvement in energy performance. Hands-on exercises and a take-home toolkit will help you to learn effectively while also providing information that can be referenced during your organization’s implementation process. The course will also discuss integrating ISO 50001 with other management systems, such as ISO 14001.
