For Part 1 in this series, please see  PI-System-and-ISO-50001

 

For Part 3 in this series, please see  Using-the-OSIsoft-PI-System-in-ISO-50001-energy-management-system-enms-implementations

 

 

The US DoE eGuide for ISO 50001 helps you to implement an EnMS through a step-by-step process. It includes forms, checklists, templates, examples and guidance to assist you throughout the implementation. This eGuide outlines the following steps:

  • Step 1 Getting Started
  • Step 2 Profile Your Energy Situation
  • Step 3 Develop Objectives, Targets and Action Plans
  • Step 4 Reality Check: Stop! Look! Can I Go?
  • Step 5 Manage Current State and Improvements
  • Step 6 Check the System
  • Step 7 Sustain And Improve The System

As illustration, for Step 2.2.3 Formulate a process for acquiring and recording data the eGuide gives the following example:

It is easy to recognize how PI System products such as PI Interfaces and PI Manual Logger that are part of the PI System data collection stack can be used in this step.

Another illustration is for Step 2.3.5 Analyze and track significant energy uses and the eGuide gives the following example:

Here again, you see PI System products such as PI DataLink, PI ProcessBook, PI WebParts and others that are part of the PI System visualization can be used to the meet the requirements in this Step.

Overall, various PI System products can help you with ISO 50001 EnMS implementation. For several items, one or more PI System products can completely meet a Step’s requirements. And, in some cases it may be beyond the scope of PI System and you will have to either extend the PI System or supplement it with other outside tools and methods.
