ISO 50001 offers tremendous potential to contribute to international, national, and corporate energy and climate emissions reduction goals.
The ISO 50001 Impact Estimator Tool (IET 50001) empowers governments and organizations to estimate energy and emissions savings potential from the implementation of ISO 50001 in a country or region.
A scenario with 50% of projected global industrial and service sector energy consumption under ISO 50001 management by 2030 would generate cumulative primary energy savings of approximately 105 EJ, cost savings of nearly US $700 billion (discounted to 2016 net present value), and 6500 million metric tons (Mt) of avoided CO2 emissions. The avoided annual CO2 emissions in 2030 alone are equivalent to removing 210 million passenger vehicles from the road.

The report contains more details about the methodology and its assumptions.
The annual and cumulative results generated by the tool are based on generic regional energy consumption, energy prices, percent ISO 50001 uptake and percent energy savings attributable to ISO 50001. (The default values can be overridden if more region-specific data is available.)
