ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (EnMS) GUIDEBOOK FOR LOCAL AUTHORITIES

This guidebook was produced in 2018 as part of the European Compete4SECAP project.

The purpose of the present guidebook is to demonstrate that quality management and certification schemes through EnMS for improving energy efficiency, renewable energy, integrated energy/climate planning and management can capitalise on synergies and scale in the public sector to benefit LAs and their stakeholders, in particular those related to the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (CoM) like Signatories, Supporters and Coordinators. The guide is aimed at any LA interested in implementing an EnMS, intending to steer them through a step-by-step approach to EnMS and illustrate all the steps necessary to:

  • know and understand the ISO 50001 methodology;
  • build a working group within the LA;
  • define the LA’s energy policy;
  • correctly share roles and responsibilities among LA staff;
  • motivate and incentivize politicians and technicians to contribute to the ISO 50001 approach;
  • have the necessary tools and knowledge to establish, implement and monitor an EnMS;
  • have the necessary expertise to achieve an ISO 50001 certification.
 

WEBINAR : INTRODUCING ENERGY MANAGEMENT IN MUNICIPALITIES: FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE - 14/05/2024

The scope of the workshop is to provide insights how to create an energy management system in a municipality (no matter the country and no matter the size of the municipality).

Topics covered include:

  • ISO 50001 standard and overall concept for a municipality
  • Scope and boundaries – what to do, where and how to start?
  • Energy planning – what is the status and what can we target?
  • Leadership – who will do what?
  • Implementation and operation – how we will do it practically?
  • Other aspects – what else municipality must consider?
