European Energy Directive

In order to achieve the common goal of increasing energy efficiency by 20 per cent by the year 2020 and also to make further improvements after this, the European Union passed the Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU at the end of 2012.

The political objective is to guide a wide variety of target groups towards behaviour which is sustainable and saves resources. In practice this means that that they not only contribute to environmental and climate protection, but can also obtain tax reductions and funding.

Energy audits as per DIN EN 16247-1, Energy management system as per ISO 50001 or Environmental management system as per EMAS

An important component of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive is to oblige organizations to perform Energy audits (DIN EN 16247-1), install an Energy management system or undertake validation according to EMAS.
