ISO 50001 - Creating business and policy values with Energy Management Systems

The international conference organised by Swedish Standards Institute and the Swedish Energy Agency the 15th of June very well appreciated by the 160 participants from all over the world. It provided the valuable meeting place for people from industry, energy authorities, local and regional authorities and those working nationally and internationally with development and implementation of the ISO 50001 standard that we wanted to create.


Since it is the 5-year anniversary of the standard ISO 50001 and it is also currently under revision there was important input from the event to the revision process.
