Have you been looking for ways to help your organisation save energy consumption and costs? Energy management can be an option you consider.
Energy management is the process of monitoring, controlling and conserving energy use in a building or organisation. Energy management helps to identify and eliminate unnecessary energy use, thereby increasing the overall energy efficiency of buildings or organisations.
An energy management system (EnMS) enables your organisation to better manage and improve energy usage and performance, through the use of information and data. EnMS also allows public and private organisations to integrate energy performance and best energy management practices into their operations, resulting in energy efficiency improvements and costs reduction. For more information on the components of an EnMS, please click here.
Besides reducing energy and other operating costs, as well as improving performance and productivity, your company will have a competitive edge over other companies in the same industry as EnMS helps to facilitate continuous improvement and process optimisation. Having an EnMS, especially one that is certified as compliant to ISO 50001 standard, also demonstrates a strong message of corporate social responsibility to the community and your customers.
ISO 50001 is an international standard on energy management standards. To find out more about ISO 50001, please click here.
SMEs can tap on the Enterprise Development Grant - Standard Adoption offered by Enterprise Singapore (ESG) for co-funding support of up to 70% of qualifying cost for the adoption of ISO 50001. Find out more here.
