ISO50001 Ireland 2014 is an industry conference which will bring together approximately 120 senior management from Irish Business who are considering the transition to this International energy standard, but have yet to make the journey.
The theme/profile of this event is simply to create an exchange of information between organisations who are about to make the transition to ISO50001 and companies who have already made the transition. Our speakers have been carefully selected based on their experiences and knowledge of this standard and are keen to network with delegates in an effort to develop the standard further within Ireland.

Lieutenant Commander Gerard Menihane – Irish Naval Service
Our effort towards ISO 50001 retention focused on activities which contribute to increasing energy efficiency, thus reducing energy consumption and its associated cost. Certification has lead to reduced GHG emissions and carbon footprint, increased energy awareness among staff, facilitated decision-making processes in incorporating energy considerations from system design through to operation, and improved corporate responsibility – affirmed Gerard Menihane, Lieutenant Commander, Officer In Charge Electrical & Electronic Section – The in-depth assessment performed by Certification Europe helped us turn the Energy Management System at the Naval Service into a fluid process rather than a set of loosely interlinked activities”, added Lt Cdr Menihane.
