Realize your company’s vision in Canadian environmental leadership with best practices in energy management. Implementing an Energy Management System (EMS) allows you to continuously improve your energy performance and realize recurring savings. The resulting organizational energy culture facilitates accountability, strengthens your team's skills, and ensures the sustainability of the savings generated by all your energy efficiency investments.
Based on the international standard ISO 50001, the Energy Management System (EMS) provides a framework for all activities concerning an organization’s energy performance. Akonovia accompanies you throughout the EMS implementation process, starting with the analysis of your current situation and the identification of your energy efficiency needs. Together with all stakeholders, we develop an energy policy which drives the objectives related to energy consumption and its monitoring.
The EMS also relies on collecting energy data compiled in an Energy Management Information System (EMIS). This allows to constantly evaluate the energy performance of the facilities and to take the optimal necessary actions. In addition, the establishment of a PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle aims at continuous improvement of the EMS. This is achieved through iterative steps and rigorous evaluation of actions taken to reduce energy consumption and costs as well as corresponding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
A properly implemented EMS ensures regular knowledge transfers to all key employees. This, in turn, helps mitigate the risk of knowledge gaps within your team due to staff turnover.
For the certification of an EMS implemented according to the ISO 50001 standard, Akonovia supports you through every step. This ranges from the first cost estimate, through the preparation of the required documents, to the final certification audit. This voluntary certification demonstrates your company's commitment to energy efficiency and the fight against climate change, positioning you as a frontrunner in Canada.
