Energy standards outline conditions that make it possible to control energy use purposefully and improve energy efficiency. It defines requirements for the introduction, maintenance and improvement of an energy management system.
For the implementation of the standard, an energy planning process must be carried out and documented. The process must cover all activities that affect energy-related performance.
The following are some of the important points:
In line with the standard, we have by far contributed to the following regulatory instruments:
