Energy audit, TAO certificate

Energy audit

The energy audit is such a complex process that includes the investigation of the energy consuming systems, the analysis of the energy consumption and the development of recommendations to increase energy efficiency.

The aim of the energy audit is to increase the efficiency of energy production and consumption, to reduce the energy costs and to protect the environment. In Hungary, the 2015. LVII. Law on Energy Efficiency made the preparation of the energy audit for large companies mandatory. Every four years, every large company is obliged to carry out an energy audit to explore its energy characteristics. The mandatory energy audit should have carried out until 5 December 2015 for the first time. The Decree 122/2015. (V. 26) describes the implementation of the Law on Energy Efficiency. The energy audit in accordance with the regulation should cover:

  • Determination of energy sources and costs
  • Determination of consumer trends, basis and specific values
  • Finding and presenting the points of energy wasting
  • Identifying and analysing the cost-effective energy use patterns, the possibility of using renewable energy sources, improved operating procedures and installing new equipment.

The energy audit is based on detailed calculations and provides recommendations to increase the energy efficiency. In compliance with the Regulation, the energy efficiency improvement opportunities shall be determined at least according to the following categories of intervention:

  • Does not require investment
  • Expected as profitable even without external financial support
  • Currently it is reasonable only with external financial support

The Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority inspects the fulfilment of the mandatory energy audit and the compliance with the legislative requirements

Our company has prepared energy audits for several years, so we have great experience in this field. We welcomed the EN 16247 standard package on energy audit, that results the energy audit can be made within the frame of the standard. The standardization and the legal provisions strengthened further the importance of energy auditing. We would be pleased if we could be your partner in the preparation of the energy audit and we can help to reduce both energy costs and environmental impact.
