Identifying Energy Efficiency Potential: The Benefits of an Energy Audit


The EU Energy Efficiency Directive stipulates that all companies that are NOT small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) according to the EU definition must carry out an energy audit. The federal government has implemented this EU requirement into national law and an energy audit requirement by adapting the Energy Services Act (EDL-G), which came into force at the end of April 2015. Since the amendment to the EDL-G, energy-intensive companies must have their energy consumption checked regularly in accordance with Sections 8 – 8d EDL-G.
As an alternative to an energy audit, obligated companies can introduce an energy management system according to ISO 50001 or an environmental management system according to the European EMAS regulation. Excluded are companies that can already provide evidence of certification according to ISO 50001 or EMAS.

An energy audit is an important tool for identifying energy efficiency potential and disclosing significant energy flows. If you know how much energy is used in which areas of your company, savings potential can be quickly identified. At the same time, you meet new legal requirements and can benefit from tax relief through, for example, the electricity tax peak equalization. In addition, the Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) supports the introduction of an energy management system with up to 30% of the net investment costs through the BAFA Energy Audit Guideline to promote energy efficiency. This includes energy management software and commissioning, required hardware and installation, but also the expansion of existing systems.
