What rules have to be followed within the framework of an energy audit?

  • The basis for the energy audit demanded in the EU Energy Efficiency Directive is Standard EN 16247-1, which defines the procedure.
  • In exceptional cases, it is possible for in-house company personnel to undertake the energy audit themselves.
  • The company must appoint an internal or external energy representative as contact and coordinator for the energy audit.
  • The Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control checks on a random sample basis whether these rules are being observed and the energy auditor has the necessary qualifications.
  • The energy audit considers all the parts and locations of an enterprise, with the aim of representing at least 90 per cent of the total energy consumption.
