HKGBC Jockey Club Green and Smart Community Buildings Project - Seminar 5: ISO50001 Energy Management System
In 2011, the International Organisation for Standardisation released ISO 50001 as a globally accepted framework for energy management. This standard is applicable to organisations of all sizes and types for setting up a suitable energy management system (EnMS). With an ISO 50001-based EnMS, an organisation can measure and monitor its energy use, identify areas for improvement and take actions accordingly. Not only will it lead to operational cost savings, it will also help to enhance energy efficiency in the social welfare sector and enable their buildings to satisfy BEAM Plus rating standard.
