The REEM would be in the best position to advise companies on how to set up EMS such as ISO50001 and AEMAS Energy Management Gold Standard. Such REEM could offer the best value for money service because, not only can they help ensure the company’s compliance with EMEER 2008 regulations, but also assist the company sustain energy cost saving, improve profitability, project a positive image and ultimately gain a competitive edge. For companies intending to periodically conduct a detailed energy audit, appointing a REEM that includes such audit services would be worthwhile considering, as it would be beneficial and cost effective for the company in the long run.
