From EnMS consulting to Solution Providing Business

We are putting forward "EnMS Solution beyond consulting" as our strategic importance.
This strategy is related to our partnership formation with Chiyoda System Technologies corporation who specialising in providing high level solutions to energy users.
A typical weakness consultants like us bear an limitation while we can provide very high level recommendation however having little opportunity of following through the recommendation to be acted on and shape it up for a realization. We face a lot of energy users receive good recommended idea however having hard time to make the ideas to a realisation. Clients need solutions. It is therefore EnMS-Doc this year would like to pursue the strategy as high priority.

ISO 50001, level of familiarity with Japanese industries only 20%

One of the leading chemical plants recently organised an in-house “Technology & Instrumentation Exhibition” for suppliers to demonstrate their products and services. As the member of Chiyoda System Technologies Corporation (CST), we participated the exhibition and took charge of the theme "CST’s EnMS implementation support".

We received many enthusiastic visitors from the organiser’s workforce members and the workforce members from neighbouring plants and factories situated in the same petrochemical complex. Among the visitors we asked a common question “Are you familiar with ISO 50001”, and 4 out 5 answered either “I am not familiar” or “This is the first time I heard about it”. Although this shows that the ISO 50001 essence is not fully disseminated yet in Japan, from the level of appreciation to the guideline's "continual energy performance improvement" initiative, we felt ISO 50001 has the potential suddenly to become the center of attention, if not only for its certification.

"Reducing" is easier; keeping the best condition after "reduced" is much more difficult

During the “Technology & Instrumentation Exhibition” mentioned in the previous article, Chiyoda System Technologies Corporation (CST) received significant endorsement from the visitors about our approach to counter the high degree of difficulty to maintain the best performance level once reached.

To keep the best performance requires much more effort, skill and sincerity than the reduction effort. This is because in order to sustain the best position, you have to be constantly alert to come up with new ideas, technologies and movements such that requiring “improvement oriented attitude” always pursuing higher marks.  CST has recognised in earlier stage that ISO 50001 EnMS International Standard possessing the superiority as a guideline having the ultimate objective “Continual energy performance improvement”. Unlike other management systems, superiority of ISO 50001 is the fact that it employs important aspects "Design" and "Procurement" as the focal elements to pursue "continual performance improvement".

Teaming up with an engineering company CST to provide EnMS implementation consulting services

One of the strengths of CST is that it does not own products. CST under the neutral position arranges highest technology and services available for the best of clients’ interests on a global scale.

Traditionally CST's business strengths are in designing (engineering) and procurement in coming up with the highest standard system including construction and implementation work. CST then could team up with clients to follow through operation-maintenance-retirement, the system and business life cycle solution for the clients. New additional program CST's offer is by partnering with EnMS-Doc providing support and services for clients to implement effective EnMS operation. This would enhance operation by integrating optimisation in the existing system through operational, technical and measurement/verification aspects. Ultimate objective in working with EnMS operation is to work with clients pursuing business development through sustainability by ensuring “continual performance improvement” procedure is part of their daily business operation.
We are not done with mere recommendations by consultation. Our belief is we work closely with clients to act immediately on positive action items and come up with timely solution. This is the mutual strategy established between CST and EnMS-Doc.

Working together with Chiyoda System Technologies Corporation

We are pleased to announce the partnership formation with Chiyoda System Technologies Corporation (hereinafter refer to as “CST”, President: Takumi Takayama).

Built on Chiyoda’s leading position in EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) and Operation and Maintenance (OM) services combining with IT engineering capability, CST’s mission is while continuing and advancing existing businesses based on the application of technology, it utilises its technology superiority to pursue business in the fields of Energy and Social Infrastructure. Before committing clients for investment, CST believes clients should be operating under energy efficient environment. CST therefore recognises the value of ISO 50001 Class Energy Management Systems in which the system offers powerful tool for clients to improve energy performance initially with minimal capital expenditure. This is where CST and EnMS-Doc found the mutual interest: CST values EnMS-Doc’s ISO 50001 Class EnMS expertise and EnMS-Doc values CST’s capability to provide wide range of technical solutions to clients once implementing EnMS. CST particularly was interested in EnMS-DOC’s capability to extend the consulting work beyond Japan in the global scene as well as the extensive coverage of the ISO 50001 Class EnMS documentation in both Japanese and English.

With the partnership with CST, we expect to have extensive activitied in Japan, and more direct interfacing with energy users. This does not mean we would reduce our attention in our website activities. As a matter of fact we think by having more direct interface with energy users, our website contents will be enhanced and more active.
We ask your contnuing support to our website.
For the occasion, we have revised our company profile.

Website interruption

During the stage of implementing migration from Dallas datacentre to the new datacentre at Austin (The largest datacentre in Texas as one of the TexasOne program) by our website host, we encountered more than a week of website blackout (27 January to 06 February). This is due to the miscommunication between the host operator and us the user. We would like to express our utmost apologies for causing the embarrassment to our viewers. The problem is solved and we hope to serve you with consistency.

ISO 50001 Certification number reached 5,055 in January 2014

We took liberty in analysing the valuable ISO 50001 certification data supplied by NAGUS - German Federal Environment Agency to update the certification situation as at the end of January 2014, and would like to show you the comparison of May-December 2013 to January 2014.

ISO 50001 requirements and responding documents

The feature of ISO 50001 is the practical guideline to implement effective EnMS operation participated by entire workforce engaged in PDCA: "P" for Plan (Develop plan based on energy review exercise); "D" for Do implement the plan; "C" for Check as evaluating the progress of implementation and degree of achievement to the targets; and "A" for Act to what is necessary for organisation whether to maintain the level of improvement or further pursuing improvement.

Therefore, the requirements are positive thinking and practical. Any top management will recognise that by performing to the ISO 50001 requirement, it ensures to take superior position in developing sustainability business. In order to take advantage of the requirement for the betterment of business operation and to maintain the established framework, one must at least establish a foundation of documentation. Once going through each item of requirements, there exist responding documents required to support complying with each item.
We have created an analysis table "Documents responding to ISO 50001 requirements" demonstrating applicable documents for requirement item.
Those of you who are interested please download

Once you go through the table you will immediately come to realise that once you have established 12 key management documents as shown below.
This is the reasoning behind EnMS-Doc developed the M333 Set Menu #101"all 12 key management documents in a set" as our feature offering.
The greatest thing about ISO 50001 is once the compatible management documents are in line, they will convert your existing documents related to EnMS operation such as procedural documents, daily journals and data into ISO 50001 documents.

German Page in Japanese:
  to make aware of activities by The Federal Environment Agency(UmweltBundesAmt=UBA)

In order to promote the superiority of ISO 50001 class Energy Management System (EnMS) in Japan, we took an approach to study how Germany is so overwhelmingly ahead of ISO 50001 certification numbers (1620 out of 3000 certified sites at end May 2013). We then realised that the consistent execution of energy policy by The Federal Environment Agency(UmweltBundesAmt=UBA)plays a significant role.

We took initiative to update the activities and policy of UBA for energy users in Japan who are having hard time in capitalising the benefits of ISO 50001 which promotes "Sustainability Business Development" from the global perspectives, hoping it will bring some references to the essence of EnMS. UBA is sending out their messages not only within Germany but extends beyond Europe in the global scale. By questioning how UBA tackles with environmental and energy efficiency issues, how they communicate with the stakeholders, forming teamwork, and while observing there is no trace for the government to enforcing the guideline, we start to see why German energy users are moving towards certification.
