Why the ISO 50 001?
Energy Management System. ISO 50 001 standard

editorial
With the aim of providing support to the environmental policy of the European Union, and in response to the challenges posed by its 20-20-20 strategy, the certifiable standard, EN16001 - Energy Management System was approved in first instance, which acted as a guarantee of the commitment to energy efficiency within an organisation. In August 2011, this standard went on to become the ISO 50001 standard, which thus made its field of action a global one.

The aim of the ISO 50001 standard is to enable organisations to implement the systems and processes they require to improve the energy performance of their installations, with the clear aim of reducing

greenhouse gas emissions and operational energy costs.

To give greater coherence and guarantee in the implementation of an EMS, companies obtain their certificate after undergoing the corresponding auditing and certification process.

To do this, the standard is based on a system of Plan > Do > Check > Act for continuous improvement that includes the EMS (Energy Management System) in all company practices.

editorial

The concept of continuous improvement involves the for later analysis, to make it possible to check if the stated objectives are being fulfilled, and follow up the designed and implemented energy performance improvement plans of action. If not, the appropriate measures are then taken.

NEWS FROM THE SECTOR
Between 2012 and 2013, a total of 3,740 megawatts of renewable energy will be added

noticia

The total amount of Spanish renewable energy will increase by 3,740 megawatts in 2012 and 2013, with 1,900 MW for wind, 340 MW for photovoltaic and 1,500 MW for solar thermal, according to a sector study. Between 2012 and 2013, a total of 3,740 megawatts of renewable energy will be added.

During this and the coming year, solar power will experience "strong growth", while wind and photovoltaic energy will grow more slowly, set against a backdrop of regulatory changes, as indicated by the report referred to by Europa Press

For wind power, the installation of 1,900 MW will result in a total figure of 22,575 MW in operation in 2012 and 23,575 MW in 2013, with annual growth of around 4%.

Photovoltaic energy will record "moderate" growth, with the installation of approximately an additional 340 MW over the next two years. By the end of 2012, around 4,300 MW could be operational, reaching 4,500 MW in 2013. For solar thermal energy, the installation of 1,500 MW will enable a 150% growth over the next two years of the installed power for this technology, reaching 1,990 MW.

noticiaIn its report, the study indicates that legislative changes and the lack of a stable regulatory environment have contributed in the last two years to a reduced growth rate of the installed capacity. This slowdown is particularly acute in the solar photovoltaic energy segment.
