The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has announced that it plans to introduce ISO 50001:2018 energy management standards in energy-intensive industries across all states.
A workshop will be held with power utilities of all southern states at Visakhapatnam today in which the bureau will impart information on continuous energy management and manufacturing operations, said BEE director, Sunil Khandare. Representatives from the southern states, Odisha and Pondicherry will also attent the workshop. Khandare added that the workshop will focus on curtailing wasteful consumption of energy in order to achieve sustainable development goals.
The ISO 50001:2018 energy management system will reduce costs and increase profitability of businesses. Nagulapalli Srikant, secretary of the energy department said BEE has nominated Andhra Pradesh for the launch of ISO 50001:2018 standards in view of its energy policies.
The ISO 50001:2018 energy standards work through a four-pronged approach: ‘plan, do, check and act’. The management at power utilities will be responsible for planning an energy policy for the organisations and conducting timely energy reviews.
After the energy policy is designed, it will be executed through training and awareness programmes in the organization, apart from enhancing infrastructure in the ‘do’ phase.
The implementation will be scrutinized and analysed for curative or preventive action as part of an internal audit in the ‘check’ phase. The management will review and ‘act’ and draft new strategies to further improve performance and reach the goals set, said Khandare.
