Collaboration with the Standards Institution of Israel

The Energy and Environment Cluster experts are members in several committees of the Standards Institution, which are meant to define and design standards in the energy and environment fields. Among the committees the team's members participate in, are:

  • Technical Committee 1206 "Products with an Environmental Aspect" – Prof. Ofira Ayalon
  • Technical Committee 2201 "Energy Management Systems" – Tal Goldrat

As part of the work with the Israeli Standards Institution, the Energy and Environment Team at the Neaman Institute completed in the beginning of 2012 documents that are supposed to assist the Institution in presenting the Voluntary Greenhouse Gas Registration and Reporting Scheme in Israel to organization in the county and the world.

The first document summarizes the Israeli policies, in comparison to policies abroad, in order to allow international organizations assess its applicability to reports calculated according to similar mechanisms.

The second document is a report on the ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems Standard and the Israeli Standard that adopts the international standard. The purpose of the report is to provide an initial review of the implementation of the standard globally and in Israel. The international standard, which was published on June 2011, and respectively the Israeli standard, provide an organization with the framework to develop and implement an energy management system in order to reduce the organization's energy consumption. In evaluating the initial impacts of the standard, it can be determined that the standard is an important tool to implementing energy efficiency policies in the country, and holds many opportunities for industry and decision makers: economic savings, energy security of the implementing organization and environmental protection (for reducing emissions of local pollutants and global pollutants). In addition to the international review, the document contains a matrix of questions that will help to characterize correctly the contribution of the standard to the overall energy efficiency of a company or organization.
