The purpose of the GAP analysis is to establish the bases for a successful certification and to determine the precise effort for setting up an energy management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001. Consequently, the GAP analysis represents an integral part of the preparation for a future certification in accordance with DIN EN ISO 50001.

In doing so, the question of how standard-compliant the previously collected data and structures have been so far, should be addressed.

  • Determining and classifying the company’s existing energy flows in kWh and €

  • Revealing and prioritizing of weak points and energy efficiency potentials

  • Recommendations for linking energy cycles, which means using wasted energy from the company itself in another place where it can be more useful

  • Energetic (in kWh) and monetary (in €) evaluation within the scope of energy efficiency potentials revealed by the GAP analysis

  • Recommendations for technical and economic measures to eliminate technical weak points

  • Estimation of the required investment costs to eliminate discovered weak points

  • Assessing the current data situation as well as the company structure with regard to the introduction of an energy management system in accordance to DIN EN ISO 50001
