Energy prices continue to be a hot topic. Fortunately, a lot of standards exist to help you get your organisation’s energy consumption and energy bills down. For example, a new standard to achieve ‘net zero energy’ was recently published.  

Towards ‘net zero energy’ in companies  

We all want to use less energy and thus pollute less. The end goal, of course, is to achieve zero emissions. To meet this target, there is the new standard ISO/PASS 50010:2023, , Energy management and energy savings — Guidance for net zero energy in operations using an ISO 50001 energy management system..

This standard guides organisations that already have an energy management system in place towards achieving net zero energy. It also supports organisations in reaching net zero carbon emissions and other sustainability goals.

What is net zero energy?

Net zero energy is a state in which an amount of energy consumed is offset by the same amount of clean, renewable energy generated. In other words, the goal is to consume no more energy than you can generate in a renewable way.

Already implemented an energy management system and want to go for net zero energy? Then choose ISO/PAS 50010:2023.
