Energy Audit Programme

Last updated: 5 November 2017
The purpose of an energy audit is to analyse the energy use of the facility being audited, to work out the potential for energy savings and present a profitability calculation of saving proposals. Energy audits are also one important element in the implementation of energy efficiency agreements to figure out energy savings measures and energy savings potentials.
Energy audit subsidies for service buildings and of industrial and energy production facilities have been granted since 1992. The actual energy audit programme started in 1994. The Ministry of Employment and the Economy (MEE) provides subsidies for carrying out the energy auditing of the commercial and public buildings and industrial and energy sectors (since 2014 according to the restrictions based on EED Article 8 mandatory energy audits for large companies). The MEE also supports municipalities to carry out audits concerning promotion of renewable energy use in the municipality district (Renewable Energy Municipal Audit).
Audit programme includes promotion of audit activities, development and monitoring, the training and qualification of energy auditors, and the quality assurance of audits. The results of energy audit activities have been monitored through a separate monitoring system since 1994.
