ISO 50001 is a systematic approach that puts forth some principles and requirements in order to establish a standard energy management system in order to increase energy performance by efficient use of energy. However, it is a guidance to form objectives and tasks, which doesn’t include specific measurements for evaluation of energy performance. Hence, additional energy maturity models are required in order to evaluate the progress of the businesses in energy performance. In this study, adaptation process of the ISO 50001 will be explained, and how a business can achieve a better organization performance by applying the energy management models that will be integrated to the ISO 50001 will be examined. With the assumption that ISO 50001 and additional energy management models cover each other, and cannot be considered separately, the purpose of this study is to find out whether the businesses can obtain optimum performance while saving energy. In the scope of this purpose, applying an integrated energy management system based on ISO 50001 is assumed as more effective than implementing ISO 50001 by merely following its guidance since the organization can measure its performance level more accurately. In the end of the research, the effect of the energy management system will be clarified on organization performance.
