Energy Management Systems: from EN 16001 to ISO 50001


  • DUGLIO, Stefano


In July 2009, The European Standard EN 16001 on the Energy Management Systems was issued. However, different authors have pointed out certain differences between the European Standard EN 16001 and ISO 50001. The article presents the main differences between the old EN 16001 Standard and the new ISO 50001. It also provides important information on the adoption of ISO 50001 at world level.
