What are Energy Management Systems (EnMS) and their payback?

Energy Management Systems offer a systemic approach to monitor and reduce the energy consumption in all kinds of organizations.

EN 16001 is the European standard for Energy Management Systems. It is based on Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, with requirements for establishing an energy policy with concrete objectives, putting in place actions to reduce and monitor energy use, verifying energy savings and planning improvements.
