The biggest issue in promoting EnMS is the word "Energy"

Nothing in the world requires a right set of mind more than pursuing performance improvement.

This is because the nice word "improvement" requires identifying "issues" and "problems". Whenever facing "issues" or "problems", many prefer to take the "status quo". Energy is a living creature requiring daily improvement and change. From the experience of promoting EnMS in various business operators, you encounter a very peculiar situation in which many in the organisation tend to segregate "energy" from daily business operations.

  • Many are falsely convinced that energy is a matter of the utility facility department.
  • Many are falsely convinced EnMS will increase their workload therefore increasing cost.
  • Many are falsely convinced that even a slight loosening of tap that a child can fix should be fixed by maintenance people by rule.
  • Many are falsely convinced that EnMS in daily operations is to simply switch off lights at lunch time by office workers.
  • Many are falsely convinced that energy cost is so little compared to the revenue amount and therefore energy matters are low on their top management’s priority.
  • Many are falsely convinced that "Energy" is a technical matter so an energy manager should have engineering degree.
Two things are being overlooked.
The most important energy in energy management system is named "PEOPLE".
No one can run a business without the performance of energy, including workers.
So I am tempted to call it a "Business Management System (BnMS)" rather than "Energy management System (EnMS)".


"Documentation is the key to effective and sustainable operation of EnMS" says ISO 50001

Strong documentation, a foundation to successful EnMS operations.

The heart of the ISO 50001 class is to qualify that you have thoroughly documented organizational processes, and that organisation’s workers actually do things in the way that was documented. This means the documentation plays one of the most important roles in ensuring an organisation's "continual performance improvement" resulting from EnMS operations. Establishing sound documents and the proper control of documents are essential in order to maintain, communicate and further improve the management systems with all people involved. The guideline and provisions defined in EnMS Manual (EnMS Charter) should address proper handling of documents including defined structure and procedures as EnMS documentation.

Free "EnMS Management Document User's Guide" is available for your reference


 EnMS Management Document User's Guide

EEnMS-Doc specialises in EnMS documentation. We offer "guidebook + templates in one" as well as creating and developing documentation systems tailored to the energy user organisation. Since the time ISO 50001 was launched (June, 2011), we have made templates for the key documents that should be at least prepared by an organisation considering ISO 50001 self-declaration or certification. We have prepared introductory information package for the familiarisation of ISO 50001 and why the documentation is so important. Those of you who are interested please download

Introduction to Lean Energy (EnMS) Procurement


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: Hiroyuki Nakasone).

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 activities 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.
...For those interested, kindly please download here (pdf)


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.

Competent EnMS operation with solid documentation leads the organisation to ISO 50001 conformity and voluntarily declare its compliance. The organisation then can decide if the certification is strategically beneficial for their business. 

We still see a lot of attentions being placed on certification when ISO 50001, International Standard for Energy Management System (EnMS) is talked about. On the other hand seldom we hear about the importance of documentation that forms the fundamental part of enhancing EnMS operation conforming to the ISO 50001 requirements. Full story...
