Energy-Management-Systems to Enable Sustainable EM:
The term energy-management-systems means that the technical side of EM is considered. Processes are optimised and so-called “smart” meters and electricity grids are used to ensure that the grid is used as evenly as possible.
In EM-Systems, other factors besides the technical component are also important. These include, for example, the EU directive on the overall energy efficiency of buildings.
Basically, EM-Systems are an important tool for meeting political requirements, monitoring, measuring and improving energy use in a company or private household.
The international energy management standard ISO 50001 provides a framework for successful EM-Systems. The requirements contained in the standard range from energy policy, energy planning, energy targets to documentation, monitoring and auditing.
