What is ISO 50002?
ISO 50002 Energy Audits is an International Standard which has been designed to complement ISO 50001. It addresses principles of an energy audit including confidentiality, transparency, and the audit process. It includes a series of annexes that addresses different types of audits for industry, buildings, transportation and services. Audits include essential information on current energy use and performance and recommendations for improvements in a wide range of areas, including operational controls, maintenance controls, modifications and capital projects. The new standard sets down the basic principles and requirements for carrying out energy audits and harmonizing common auditing processes. Additionally, this common approach allows organizations to compare results across similar sites.
