Energy management systems (EnMS) enable organisations to establish the systems and processes needed to achieve operational control and continual improvement of energy performance. This paper focuses on EnMS standards, implementation and certification processes, and their linkages with wider policy or programme packages. Implementing an EnMS helps a company develop a baseline of energy use, actively manage energy use and costs (in particular as energy prices are becoming increasingly volatile), reduce emissions without a negative effect on operation, and continue to improve energy use/product output over time.
