UNIDO Energy Management System Implementation in Industry


Side Event: Industry Leaders in UNIDO’s Energy Management Programme

20 June 2015


Energy Management Systems (EnMS) have emerged over the last two decades as proven best practice methodology to ensure sustainable energy efficiency and continually improving performance in industry. The UNIDO Industrial Energy Efficiency Programme supports enterprises in developing and emerging economies in the implementation of EnMS, thereby helping them improve their energy performance, productivity and environmental sustainability. The breadth and scope of the programme has expanded significantly since its inception, resulting in significant reductions in greenhouse gases and a stronger market for energy efficiency technologies and services. There is still much scope for the programme within and between regions, however, if the Sustainable Energy For All (SE4ALL) goal of doubling the rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030 target is to be met. The Vienna Energy Forum 2015 provides an ideal opportunity to raise awareness and promote the further implementation of the EnMS programme by presenting examples of best practices that may encourage new adopters at the forum, while strengthening ties with existing partners.

As a sector that is projected to account for the largest share of new global energy demand by 2035, industry has a critical role to play in the achievement of international sustainable development goals, including energy security and climate change mitigation. Sustainable industrial development is particularly important in developing and emerging countries, which will require over 90% of the new industrial energy demand by 2035. According to the International Energy Agency’s World Economic Outlook Report (2013), the industrial sector holds 38% of total potential energy savings in the future, which could be realised through the broad dissemination and application of best available practices and technologies.
UNIDO’s mandate is to ensure inclusive and sustainable industrial development. The Industrial Energy Efficiency Unit (IEE) works within the Energy Branch to support industries in developing and emerging economies in promoting cost efficiencies and competitiveness in industry. The IEE programme consists of around 35 projects, with a project portfolio of $105 million (over 80% of which is supported by the Global Environment Facility: the GEF), and committed co-financing from government partners, industry and financing institutions of more than $660 million. Under the EnMS and System Optimization (SO) programme, UNIDO has provided in-depth training on implementation and system optimization in line with ISO 50001 standards to more than 800 energy efficiency consultants and assisted more than 300 companies in the implementation of energy management projects and state-of-the-art system optimization practices. Average organization-wide energy savings in first 1-2 years of implementation of the UNIDO-IEE programme range from 5% to 15%, with little or no capital investments. Moreover, enterprises that have implemented EnMS have achieved annual energy savings that are 2-3 times higher on average than those that have not.  
Industrial companies and innovative entrepreneurs working in collaboration with the UNIDO-IEE Programme have experienced multiple benefits beyond pure energy cost savings, including increased productivity and competitiveness, reduced exposure to volatile energy prices and greater reliability of operations. Real-life success stories are widely recognized by enterprises and other stakeholders as an effective means to demonstrate the benefits of EnMS, and could act as an effective catalyst for its adoption. Showcasing case studies and best practices is therefore an integral part of achieving UNIDO’s objective of supporting improvements in energy efficiency worldwide.
The main objective of the session is to highlight the significance of energy management and energy efficiency as a key driver for inclusive and sustainable industrial development and a substantial opportunity area to support the achievement of the SE4ALL goal on energy efficiency, while mitigating climate change. Accordingly, the event intends to provide examples demonstrating EnMS as the preeminent best-practice for sustainable energy efficiency in industry, achieving multiple benefits including substantial cost reductions.
The session also aims to showcase the leadership of UNIDO industrial partners in implementing EnMS around the world. Panellists will have the opportunity to share their experiences with EnMS implementation, practical results and competitive advantages realized, as well as challenges and lessons learned. It is envisaged that the session will catalyse further commitments to enhancing energy efficiency, including replication and up-scaling by partner companies/ holdings of the panellists. This will be encouraged on a voluntary basis.
