Saving Energy, Saving Our Future
As global weather becomes more extreme, the threat that climate change poses for companies is no longer theoretical. Global surface temperatures in 2019 are on track to be either the second or third warmest since record-keeping began in the mid-1800s, behind only 2016 and possibly 2017.Businesses are working to protect their assets and supply chains from increasingly severe hurricanes, heat waves, fires, and droughts. More and more companies are figuring such “climate risk” into their calculations, and investors are paying close attention.
Today energy is climbing up the corporate agenda, due to sweeping environmental, social, and business trends, including climate change and global carbon regulation, increasing pressures on natural resources, rising expectations concerning corporate environmental performance, innovations in energy technologies and business models, and plummeting renewable energy prices. These megatrends are changing the context in which businesses operate, and opening companies up to new risks and new paths to value creation.
The most effective way for a company to achieve carbon emissions reduction is through the implementation of energy efficiency measures, energy management, and energy management systems. Recognizing energy as an asset that is managed, rather than a utility that is paid for, is key to the successful implementation of systematic energy management, leading to carbon emissions reductions and improving energy security and financial performance. It also shows support in response to the impact of climate change and calls to protect the environment.
Energy Management System (EnMS)
The EnMS ISO 50001 standard provides companies with internationally recognized guidelines to improve energy balance, reduce CO2 emissions, and lower energy costs by using energy more efficiently. The successful implementation of EnMS relies on a number of drivers, such as reduction of energy costs, a corporate energy strategy, demand for eco-friendly products, etc. These drivers and barriers are interlinked. Multinational organizations now consider the impact of climate change as part of normal management practices. Measurement and reduction of an enterprise’s footprint is presently a priority for the majority of senior managers in large organizations. Organizations voluntarily participate in sustainability ranking processes via surveys aimed at recognition of leading performers in sustainability.
Energy management can be broadly defined as the proactive, organized, and systematic management of energy use in a building or organization to satisfy both environmental and economic requirements. Energy audits help identify Energy Management Opportunities where savings of energy and money can be made.
Consistently using energy efficiently can help you control your company’s energy costs. We at TÜV Rheinland can help industry and local governments introduce more energy-efficient structures. Certification as an “energy-efficient company” ensures continuous improvement of your energy efficiency through the use of measurement instruments and the Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) to monitor and analyze energy use – and that, in turn, ensures even greater cost-effectiveness.
Our experts conduct the certification process in several steps and in close cooperation with your company. To reduce the complexity of the energy analysis, we break down your operations into typical consumption elements, each of which has specifically defined requirements. These, in turn, are individually adapted to the specific circumstances of your company. Upon successful completion of the audit, you receive the “energy-efficient company” certificate. To sustain and further extend the savings achieved, we conduct periodic follow-up audits.
In this era of complex supply chains and the hiring of expert sub-contractors, taking such responsibility is crucial for preventing events with the potential to adversely affect the corporation and its reputation. Business leaders must establish robust processes not just for qualifying third-party vendors, but also to ensure that there is integration of those suppliers within a strong safety culture with close company oversight of safety management and processes.
TÜV Rheinland’s experts assist companies and government agencies with a comprehensive range of energy services under one roof. TÜV Rheinland offers support in all areas, whether monitoring the emissions of a CHP plant, calculating the energy efficiency of a hot-water boiler, or assessing your eco balance – we are your expert contact. Our specialists support you with your projects. We test your products and services all over the world to verify that they are technologically up to date.
