Citing an ongoing industrial project, this contribution highlights the benefits of a certified energy management system pursuant to ISO 50001. It depicts, among other details, how much information an organization has to provide and which requirements have to be fulfilled for a certified energy management system to come alive. One of the most important aspects of introducing an energy management system is to systematically monitor and register the production processes. Gauging, analysing and evaluating energy consumers are the cornerstone elements of systematically reducing energy consumption and the attendant costs. All this is explained by way of examples and provides insight into the workaday routine of TÜV Nord Systems consultants.
