Abstract:This report provides a reflection of the research done on the comparison between the Lankan Electricity Companies (LECO) current Energy Management System (EnMS) and the system as described by the ISO 50001 standard on energy management. It was found that LECO is running a well functioning management system to monitor and control electricity losses in their distribution network, although the system has some shortcomings. The company is furthermore aware of these shortcomings and is working to fix them. Key difference with the ISO 50001 standard was the lack of central organization within the system and the absence of a general company policy on energy efficiency. It is suggested that fixing these 2 issues would provide the starting point from which the company could then adjust a number of smaller issues to make their EnMS ISO 50001 certifiable. A key question that is raised and left open is if the company would wish to expand the scope and boundaries of their EnMS to include other aspects of company operations.
