The megatrend energy was taken on by ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems defining requirements for external certification. The book explains how costs may be cut, strategy can be improved and how energy is blended into an overall integrated management approach implementing ISO 50001. This cross-functional and interdisciplinary field is touching accounting, operations, procurement, logistics, facility management and most other business domains, which have to contribute to improvements. Technological advances are allowing for an energy turnaround on national and international level. Important examples impacting companies are explained in a way that readers with nontechnical background may understand easily (plus-energy houses, e-mobility etc.). The overall challenge of energy is adding to complexity in companies, but - on the other hand - powerful new IT-tools are available. Examples are in-memory databases (IMDB), cloud and mobile computing, Big Data or smart metering. They are triggering energy and overall resource efficiency as part of corporate sustainability. Companies and academia should know about these trends indispensible for long-term competitiveness in international business.
