UNIDO USER training for the implementation of the Energy Management System in accordance to the UNIDO Methodology and ISO 50001 (GEF – UNIDO EnMS USER Training Programme) will be held on 29th and 30th of March 2018, in the frames of the project “Catalyzing market transformation for industrial energy efficiency and accelerate investments in best available practices and technologies in the Republic of Macedonia”.
The standards for Energy Management represent a proven effective tool for the implementation of a sustainable energy efficiency in the industry. Furthermore, the sustainability of energy efficiency practices represents a challenge for the industry, because the larger number of optimized systems lose their initial efficiency with time, mostly as a result of the changes of the employees and the production.
By using the well-known approach of „plan-do-check-act„ integrated in the worldwide recognized environmental and quality management systems standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, the standards for energy management represent a planned and overall guide, especially for the industrial plants. The Energy Management standards provide the integration of energy efficiency and optimization of the systems in the day-to-day operation of industrial plants.
The Energy Management standards firmly connect the business logic for Energy Management and the basic profit interests of the companies through the decrease of the daily operational costs, increase productivity, environmental compliance and responsibility, as well as improved global competitiveness.
The scope of the User Training is acquiring knowledge of the Energy Management System, the benefits from the implementation of EnMS, building management and employee devotion towards EnMS, definition of limits and range of the system and acquiring knowledge of the UNIDO methodology (the Tools) for implementation of EnMS in accordance to ISO 50001. Through this training national capacities will be built for the implementation of industry energy efficiency.
Trainers will be UNIDO qualified EnMS experts, Mr. Mirko Ristevski, grad. el. eng. and Assoc. Professor. dr. Ana LAzarevska, grad. mech. eng.
