UNIDO’s Energy Management System (EnMS) starter kit provides an overview for leadership teams on what an EnMS is and how implementing one can bring added value to your organization. In this kit you will find insights from UNIDO’s global experts as well as external links to recommended references, case studies, manuals and technical guides.
An Energy Management System (EnMS) is a framework for energy consumers including industrial, commercial and public sector organizations to manage their energy use. It helps companies identify opportunities to adopt and improve energy-saving technologies, including those that do not necessarily require high capital investment. In most cases, the successful implementation of an EnMS requires specialised expertise and staff training.
UNIDO’s comprehensive 18-month training programme takes participants beyond the classroom and guides them through a hands on process of action planning, implementation and continuous energy saving improvements. By the end of the training, host companies and participating organizations gain an energy management system that is uniquely tailored to their needs. This includes specialised tools developed by UNIDO, a dedicated energy policy as well as baseline metrics and data, which helps energy management teams stay on track and ultimately achieve their energy saving targets long into the future.
