For large companies, the mandatory 4-yearly energy audit is due again in 2023. It is a particularly fortunate timing right now, as we are in the middle of an energy crisis, and even companies that previously saw mapping energy loss as just another obligation now might regard it as an opportunity. A comprehensive energy audit results provide the corporate management with detailed information on energy saving and optimisation opportunities. An energy audit can also help lay the foundations for improvements and serve as a baseline documentation of ISO 50001 energy management system.
The energy audit is an analysis of energy consumption and building related costs, technology and transport activities, according to the standard of MSZ EN 16247-1-4. We prepare specific energy indicators and make proposals for energy saving opportunities, supported by return on investment calculations.
The following areas will be investigated:
The next deadline for completion of the mandatory 4-yearly audit is 5 December 2023, regardless of the date of submission of the first energy audit by the company.
In our experience, in cases where there was no energy specialist involved or no energy audit in the last few years, we can identify significant immediate savings, with the audit fee being recovered almost immediately.
It usually takes between 20 and 30 working days, depending on the data provided.
Since 2016, we have been assisting large companies in this area as an authorised energy auditing organisation and entitled to carry out energy audits since the introduction of the Energy Efficiency Act LVII of 2015. Our team of experts, together with experienced auditors in the field, will carry out the assessment and draw up improvement plans. Providing complex advice to our clients, we always examine the tax benefits, subsidies, financing options and, if required, the EIF option.
Our company has liability insurance covering energy audits.
