Energy Management Software
Perfect your energy management
Professional energy data management software: ProfiSignal 20
BaFA eligible according to ISO 50001
The prices for energy are rising drastically. While the price of electricity in Europe has risen by 6% annually since the turn of the millennium, companies will have to deal with price jumps of up to 580% in 2022 compared to the previous year. The situation is no better for natural gas. In April 2022, the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) recorded a 105 % increase in gas prices - and the current discussions in politics show that prices will probably rise drastically again in 2022.

What are the benefits of energy management?
Energy is a valuable resource and now accounts for one of the largest cost factors in the manufacturing industry. In many companies, however, the energy item is still treated as a subordinate topic - and managed in confusing, endless tables, lists or individual documents. These isolated solutions, which are more makeshift than useful, may allow a brief overview of the energy situation in the company. However, these approaches neither offer a quick visualisation of key figures nor do they enable the discovery of energy saving potentials. In order to reduce energy costs and at the same time be able to act more economically, more and more companies are now relying on energy management - a combination of different measures that are intended to ensure the lowest possible energy input for a required performance. Energy management refers to existing processes and systems, structural conditions and human behaviour. The goal of all measures in the field of energy management: to reduce the consumption of energy, raw materials, auxiliary materials and additives.
Energy management software as an interface solution
Energy is used in numerous areas in a company. Production, warehouse, administration or cold storage: in the end, many individual consumers make up the sum of the total energy demand. Just as numerous and distributed throughout the company are the responsibilities for the respective areas of responsibility. For a consolidation of the individual data sources in the sense of efficient energy management, real interface specialists are needed. With ProfiSignal 20, we provide a software-based interface solution that automatically manages and centralises all energy data of a company. This gives those responsible direct access to all relevant data relating to energy management. This saves time and reduces the effort noticeably.
Energy management according to ISO 50001
The ISO 50001
A management system standard published in 2011 that represents the international standard for energy management systems. The latest edition of the DIN EN ISO 50001:2018-12 standard is from August 2018.
The standard can be applied by small and medium-sized enterprises as well as by large companies or public authorities. ISO 50001 provides the framework for effective energy management, while compliance with the formulated requirements may be tailored by each company individually to its own needs.
With a guideline, the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control supports the implementation of an energy management system according to ISO 50001.
Our energy management software ProfiSignal 20 was developed in accordance with the requirements of ISO 50001 and guarantees 100% conformity with the guidelines defined by the standard.
Certification: Easy with energy management software
The certification of a company according to ISO 50001 is a long-term, organic process that takes place in several steps. The process of certification in the field of energy management is as follows:
- Integration of an energy management system into the structures of the company
- Verification of effectiveness through internal audits
- Selection of a suitable certification body and conclusion of a contract
- Pre-audit (optional) to clarify ambiguities or eliminate deficiencies
- Certification audit part I: Review of the documentation of the energy management system, site assessment and determination of readiness for audit stage II
- Certification audit part II: Review of the effectiveness of the implemented energy management system and its conformity with ISO 50001. In addition, renewed review of the documentation.
- Preparation of an audit report and evaluation of the results
- Final discussion for a detailed overview of the certification process
- Only in the case of deviations or non-compliance with ISO 50001: post-audit to check pre-defined improvement measures.
The certification of a company according to ISO 50001 is valid for three years. Since the standard requires a continuous improvement process, companies must conduct annual surveillance audits during the three years, which are essential as a basis for successful recertification.
With the right software, you can build a solid foundation for successful certification according to ISO 50001 right from the start. The ProfiSignal 20 solution, which was specially developed for the requirements of modern energy management, maps energy structures in an easily accessible way, is completely platform-independent, can be completely adapted to every need of a company and is fully compliant with the requirements of ISO 50001. With the software to successful certification: Delphin Technology is your reliable partner on the way to your certification!
