SawEnMS Handbook

The SawEnMS handbook is a guide for sawmills on how to implement a practical and usable Energy Management System (EnMS) and developed by ECOINFLOW partners. By following the guide, the sawmill company could develop a framework for working with energy management. SawEnMS is an EnMS that has been tailored to fit the sawmilling industry. Though many parts of an EnMS is relevant to companies in any sector, the SawEnMS is made to ease implementation at sawmills, with relevant examples, advice and tools that can be implemented directly. The ECOINFLOW team made efforts to make it a simple, but robust and powerful tool for energy management. 

Although it is based on the ISO 50001, it is not intended as a complete EnMS that can be certified. However, by following all the steps of the guide, the users could have a very good starting point for an EnMS ready for certification.

SawEnMS consists of seven steps. By using SawEnMS, you could be guided through the whole process, step by step.  The seven steps are as follows:

1.Appoint an Energy management Team
2.Decide on an Energy policy
3.Perform an Energy review (mapping the energy use)
4.Decide on Energy targets
5.Develop an Energy action plan
6.Develop Routines for energy efficiency in everyday work
7.Develop routines for Internal communication

The steps shall be repeated regularly and infinitely to achieve a more and more enhanced EnMS. You could see the steps as an infinite spiral of enhancements to reach a higher level of energy efficiency.
