INTRODUCTION TO THE BESS ENERGY MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATION MODEL

 

One of the objectives of the BESS project is to present an energy management implementation model (EMIM) which can be used and tested by companies. During the pilot phase of the BESS project several tools and examples which are connected to the EMIM are available via the dartboard of the e-learning scheme to selected pilot companies for testing.

 

The energy management implementation model is designed to cover different aspects of implementing energy management and fulfilling the requirements that might occur as a regulative framework for energy management. The model covers most of the ISO 14001 oriented energy management requirements like the BESS Energy Management Specification and at the same time covers practical implementing procedures, which can be used by the companies in order to achieve targeted energy saving goals. Requirements and linking lists to relevant international standards (known to many companies) can be regarded as the reference for their energy management system to be implemented and as the basis for self-assessment and auditing of the quality of the energy management system within the company.

 

In the table below the major actions within the energy management implementation model (EMIM) are listed. Each action is subordinated to one of the nine main energy management implementation steps. Though there is no fixed schedule the numbers 1 to 9 describe a possible time sequence for implementing energy management for the first time.
