Ever since the industrial revolution, production activities undertaken by mankind have pushed the concentration of greenhouse gases to new heights. A collection of severe weather issues has resulted, directly threatening our future. Emissions from energy production and utilisation now account for two thirds of the total greenhouse gases in the world, in view of which, countries have begun contemplating how to effectively minimise global warming and resolve energy shortages. In addition to carbon emissions reduction and emissions trading, another perspective has emerged: the energy management system.
Formulating and implementing an energy management system within an energy-consuming enterprise, and a gradual reduction of energy consumption or the utilisation rate of energy, will simultaneously achieve the goal of emissions abatement. However, as the largest producer and consumer of energy in the world, China is experiencing a significant contradiction between energy demand and consumption.
In 2016, TÜV Rheinland published a White Paper on the status and development of energy management systems, summarising its practical experience with energy management on a global scale. In this publication, many recommendations were made with respect to the following areas:
- The current status of global energy,
- Chinese issues on energy consumption,
- Policy-specific directions,
- Issues and lessons learnt from the development of energy management systems.
For business sectors engaged in high energy consumption or low-ratio energy utilisation, these recommendations will help them understand energy management systems and seize opportunities for energy conservation and emissions reduction. In addition, they will help businesses make the correct decisions and identify the direction of corporate development.
