  1. International Organization for Standardization

  2. International standards supporting energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and monitoring of green house gas emissions Daniele Gerundino International Organization for Standardization UNIDO EGM on Standards and Industrial Energy Efficiency, Vienna 21/22 March 2007

  3. CONTENTS • ISO and its mission • Technical work in ISO • ISO governance structure • ISO relevance for the energy sector • International standards supporting energy efficiency and renewable energy sources • ISO and IEA cooperation

  4. What is ISO? The International organization for standardization (ISO) At February 2007 156 national members • IT tools • Standards development procedures • Consensus building • Dissemination 179 active TCs 3000 technical bodies 50 000 experts Central Secretariatin Geneva 150 staff

  5. ISO Key mission statement • global and market relevant International Standards covering • products, services, good conformity assessment, management and organizational practices To be the leading value adding platform and partner for the production of

  6. ISO Technical Work Extent of ISO System Last update: 2007-01-01 153 full-time posts 16455 ISO Standards Secretary Chairman 726 Secretariats held by 42 countries About 193 TCs(178 active) Ch 540 SCs Convenor C 2244 WGs 3415 active projects at 2006-12-31

  7. Multi-stakeholder participation in ISO’s work • Open participation • Participation in ISO is open on a non-discriminatory basis to all countries of the world • All ISO member bodies have equal rights of participation at the policy development level and at every stage of standards development, adoption of standards and dissemination of adopted standards • National delegation and National enquiry • ISO members are committed to organizing participation in ISO's technical work through national delegations that represent a balance of interests reflecting the technological, economic and public interest conditions in the country • A key right and responsibility for each ISO member concerns the organization of national input during the enquiry stage – prior to the approval of ISO’s normative documents

  8. Multi-stakeholder participation in ISO’s work (2) • Transparency, impartiality and consensus • The ISO process is based on procedures designed to take account of the views of all parties and to reconcile any conflicting arguments • ISO members are committed to respect the results of ISO's consensus building processes, i.e. that an ISO normative document is approved when there is an absence of sustained opposition by any important part of the concerned interests

  9. Ensuring market relevance and efficiency of technical work • Involvement of key stakeholders in the standards development process • ISO policy on Global Relevance • Various modalities to address new areas of work quickly, such as: • Strategic Advisory Groups, New Work Studies • Project Committees, International Workshop Agreements • Set timeframes (forcing the project management approach)

  10. Ensuring market relevance and efficiency of technical work (2) • Continual improvement of the ISO standards development process • Service agreements between ISO and member bodies holding TC/SC secretariats • Timeframes, Tracks, Performance monitoring, … • Full computerization (document authoring and exchange, electronic balloting, user management, project management, …) • Proven results • Average time needed to publish an International Standard (in 2006): less than 3 years • Increased participation and use of International Standards

  11. ISO Governance structure General Assembly Council TC 1 TC 176 TC 204 TC xxx During its session holds the powers of the Organization and approves its overall policies Governs the organization Resolvesconflicts(of technical and policy nature)escalated to Council level Defines and oversees application of procedures for technical work Decides on new TCs and allocation of work to TCs Resolves conflicts of technical nature Technical Management Board Technical Committes Technical Committes are independent and the sole entities responsible for ISO’s technical work

  12. ISO relevance for the Energy sector • International Standards have given and continue to give an important contribution to the Energy sector • helping to enhance the safety of industry operations, assure quality, allow for variety control and interoperability, reduce waste and achieve significant cost savings • helping to improve production, products, processes and networks, and to speed-up market acceptance • ISO has published 670 standards for the Energy sector and, at June 2006, had over 200 active work items

  13. International Standards supporting Energy Efficiency • Preliminary portfolio analysis conducted in the framework of a pilot project (using a restrictive approach) • 18 ISO TCs are involved • More than 100 ISO standards published and 36 active work items – with 21 standards and 3 WIs covering industrial products and processes • Energy efficiency of Buildings is the field covered more broadly by ISO standards

  14. IS concerning Energy Efficiency of industrial products and processes A few examples ISO 5802 – Industrial fans performance (ISO TC 117) ISO 1217 – Compressors – Consumption vs. power output (ISO TC 118/SC 6) ISO 9946 – Manipulating industrial robots – power consumption (ISO TC 184/SC2)

  15. International Standards supporting Renewable Energy sources • Preliminary portfolio analysis conducted in the framework of a pilot project (using a restrictive approach) • Three ISO TCs are involved • 20 ISO standards published and 11 active work items • The majority of ISO standards in this field cover solar heating systems

  16. IS concerning Renewable Energy Sources A few examples ISO 81400 (ISO TC 60) – Wind turbine gearboxes ISO 9459 (ISO TC 180/SC4) – Solar water-heating systems ISO 13600 (ISO TC 203) –Technical Energy system

  17. ISO cooperation with IEA Energy efficiency has a key role to play and is available in the short term

  18. ISO cooperation with IEA (2) • ISO and IEA agree that International Standards are a key tool for disseminating new technologies and good practices, developing global markets and supporting the harmonization of government policies on energy efficiency and renewable sources on a global scale • The two organizations are willing to cooperate with a view to: • refining the portfolio analysis of International Standards relevant to these fields • identifying priorities that can be shared by public authorities, the private sector and societal stakeholders • performing a gap analysis and providing recommendations to standards experts on high-priority areas that can be covered by International Standards

  19. Energy Management and Auditing standards • The theme of Energy Management standards has been debated informally in ISO but work has not been proposed yet • ISO is well aware of national standards covering the subject and following developments in the field (regional projects, bilateral/multilateral cooperation) – recognizing that most documents are compatible with the ISO management systems “model” • ISO welcomes the UNIDO initiative and looks forward to support in the most suitable way proposals from ISO members and recommendations from international organizations to initiate international standardization activities on the subject
