Structure of the Energy Management System
The EMPSI-project has the option for companies to participate in the project to implement an energy management system. TThe organizations interested in implementing an Energy Management System (EnMS) are able to choose one of the following options:
• “Basic”: Designed as a first step in EnMS. For organizations that cannot develop all the requirements of the ISO 50001 standard.
• “Full”: Leading to a complete implementation of the EnMS, assuming all the requirements of the ISO 50001 standard. For highly committed organizations. Options (see figure at the right)
EnMS Manual (see figure PDCA at the right)
The manual is a reference document, easy to read and easy to understand. The content of the manual covers all the subjects of the EnMS. The manual includes examples, comments, figures, links and references.
Provides detailed information regarding the PDCA (PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT) approach – also known as Deming Cycle – to achieve continuous improvement in energy performance.
“Basic” version: The basic implementation is specially focused in the “PLAN” and “DO” phases of the Deming Cycle, which include the energy planning, implementation and operation tasks. These tasks are summarized in sections 2 and 3 of the Basic Version of the EnMS Manual document.
“Full” version: The full implementation covers all four phases of the Deming Cycle. These phases are specified in sections 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the Full Version of the EnMS Manual document.
Procedures and registries
Procedures: Only available for the “Full” version. A procedure is used to describe in detail a specific and advanced task.
Registries: control documents for setting goals, writing record of implementations undertaken, and proposing improvements. Available in the basic version and the full version of the EnMS.
“Basic” version: The document is an editable template, therefore the company details can be added throughout the document.
Consists in a brief document containing all the information needed to handle the EnMS, except the registry forms, which are linked in the text.
“Full” version: The document is an editable template, therefore the company details can be added throughout the document.
Consists in a brief document containing most of the information needed to handle the EnMS. The text links to the procedures (to add detailed description when it is needed) and to the registry forms.
