In order to meet the European Union’s environmental targets for 2020 and 2030 (the EU is aiming to reach 20% energy saving by 2020 and 27% or greater by 2030), the European Commission introduced Directive 2012/27/EC (Article 8.4) establishing EU-wide energy efficiency requirements, and as part of the action plan, large enterprises are required to carry out regular energy audits prepared by qualified independent experts in order to evaluate their energy consumption and savings potential. With slight variations in the exact wording of requirements, most Member countries stipulate that companies having 250 or more employees or an annual turnover exceeding 50 million euros and balance sheet total exceeding 43 million euros are obliged to carry out an energy audit.
The energy audit should cover all major energy consuming facilities, including energy consumed for transportation, heating and cooling, lighting, industrial or other machine operation, among other aspects. In addition to identifying, quantifying and reporting current energy consumption, an energy audit is also designed to provide reliable technical and economic information for formulating feasible and cost-effective recommendations for energy efficiency improvement measures and packages of measures that would lead to measurable energy savings if implemented. As such, the energy audit can potentially have significant benefits in addition to ensuring compliance with legislative requirements, i.e. it can constitute the source of energy savings business planning.
