Newly published EN 17267, “Energy measurement and monitoring plan — Principles for energy data collection,” now complements existing standard ISO 50001 §6.6 (“Planning for collection of energy data”). It addresses the needs and the questions most often expressed by organizations:
- The main needs expressed by organizations:
I want to make energy audits according to ISO 50002
I want to set up an EnMS according to ISO 50001
I want to establish a baseline and compute EnPls according to ISO 50006
2. The main questions expressed by organizations:
What should I measure?
How many devices should I install? What kind of devices? Where to install them?
How should I ensure accuracy and (long term) repeatability?
What about other energies (e.g., biomass, compressed air, etc.)?
How should I proceed? How should I get started?
How should I get a budget?
How often should I upload measured data? Who is going to deal with it?
EN 17267 is helping organizations design and implement a measuring plan through:
– A concrete, 6-stage process
– Operational recommendations
– A pragmatic, 3-level approach (base, medium, high, related to the organization needs)
