The higher energy demand impose burden on country’s economy, specifically for the countries which are import dependent for energy supplies. Pakistan is an emerging economy which is going throw an energy crisis due to sharp rise in demand supply gap. Industry is the largest energy consumer of Pakistan and textile industry is the largest industry of the county in terms of exports and gross domestic product. ISO 50001:2001 energy management system was implemented in Shafi Texcel Ltd, to reduce the energy consumption of the textile unit. Energy performance indicators were identified (3 in the current study) and objectives were formulated to reduce the steam consumption in processes and reduce coal consumption or boiler efficiency enhancement. The targets were met with fairly small payback periods (less than 3 months), which means, that it is convienent to implement energy management system in a short period of time without huge capital expenses. It also ensures that although the renewable energy systems are helpful and must be incorporated but management of already available sources is also essential for sustainable energy future. The savings of Rupees 15.6 Million will achievable annually after an investment cost of 2.2 Million Rupees.
