Energy is one of the most critical challenges facing the international community in our time.
This is why the publication, on 15 June 2011, of the international standard ISO 50001 on energy management systems was a landmark event: it is estimated the standard could have a positive impact on 60 % of the world’s energy use.
ISO 50001 replaced standard EN 16001:2009 (issued by CEN/CENELEC – European Committee for Standardization – which was applicable only in Europe). It provides public and private sector organisations with management strategies to increase energy efficiency, reduce costs and improve their energy performance.
The Recent Legislative Decree no. 102 of 4 July 2014, implementing Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency, exempts the companies certified under ISO 50001 from the obligation – applying to large companies and energy intensive companies – to perform an energy audit by 5 December 2015 and every 4 years thereafter.
