Energy auditingAn energy audit investigates and analyses the energy consumption and energy conservation potential of the audited party and proposes conservations measures, their profitability calculations and impact on CO2 emissions. Energy audits also investigate the opportunities for the use renewable energy sources.
An energy audit can cover a property, transport chain or an entire municipality (municipal renewable energy audit):
- A property’s energy audit aims to increase the efficiency of the property’s energy consumption by investigating the current situation and the chances for energy conservation and the utilisation of renewable energy.
- The energy audits of transport chains are comprehensive investigations of the transport chains of freight traffic and particularly beneficial for those who procure transport services, such as municipalities and cities.
- A municipal renewable energy audit investigates a municipality’s or city’s opportunities for using renewable energy in the heating of properties and electricity production within its area.
The implementation of an energy audit may be eligible for government aid: the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment grants aid for the audits of service properties and renewable energy audits.
