TÜV Nord Certifies the Energy Management of SMA Solar Technology AG(PresseBox) (Niestetal, )
"The careful handling of energy using a comprehensive energy management is becoming increasingly important for households and companies. SMA not only offers just the right system solutions for this, such as SMA Smart Home, but it also sets a good example with its operational energy management. The successful certification according to DIN EN ISO 50001, which aims to continuously improve energy efficiency and minimize energy consumption in companies, is yet another confirmation that we are the pioneers here too," explains Dr. Günther Häckl, SMA Chief Representative and Vice President of Public Affairs. He said that an efficient and renewable energy supply coupled with minimum consumption had already been a fixed integral part of the corporate and sustainability mission statement at SMA for a long time. The declared objective was to cooperate with employees to achieve operational energy management excellence and to highlight ways to ensure resource-saving production.
DIN EN ISO 50001 is the global applicable standard for certifying energy management systems in organizations and companies. The key components of the certification include defining the in-house energy policy, formulating energy targets, introducing an energy controlling process and implementing efficiency measures for continuously improving energy use.
Consistent energy management allows commercial and industrial companies not only to meet their environmental responsibility, but to considerably reduce their electricity costs and therefore increase their competitiveness. "The selfconsumption of solar power is becoming increasingly important. After all, company's PV systems enable them to produce their own power cost-effectively and make themselves more independent from rising electricity costs," says Günther Häckl.
