Critical Success Factors for ISO 50001 Energy Management System Implementation

There are many organizations that need to manage their energy to improve the competitiveness or to meet decarbonization goals.
Many organizations begin an EnMS implementation, allocating resources and time from their team, but fail to complete the requirements of ISO 50001, ending this initiative without any results.
Before beginning the implementation of an EnMS, the organization must determine if it meets the following critical success factors:
1. Top management involvement
2. Cross section energy team
3. Energy performance improvement
4. Energy efficiency projects portfolio
