Solution: Energy audits & energy management: improving energy efficiency
Energy audit in accordance with the Energy Efficiency Act
Energy audit for companies in accordance with the Energy Efficiency Act
In Austria, the Energy Efficiency Act obliges large companies with more than 249 employees, more than 50 million euros in turnover or more than 43 million euros in total assets to take these energy efficiency measures. Companies that fall under this regulation must document their measures and subsequently report them to a central monitoring body.
External energy audit according to EN 16247
The TÜV AUSTRIA energy experts offer you independent energy audits in accordance with the applicable EN 16247 standard. Together with you, they analyse your energy consumption and uncover your potential for energy savings in terms of type and scope.
In a kick-off meeting, our auditors agree on the objectives, areas of application and limits with you. At the same time, they will determine with you a schedule, the responsible and necessary contact persons, as well as the level of detail required for the investigation and the subsequent practical procedure.
In the course of an initial data collection, the auditor analyses your energy consumption data of the last few years of all energy-consuming systems, processes and facilities concerned.
During an on-site inspection, the TÜV auditors record further necessary analysis data and get a picture of, for example, system and building conditions as well as user behaviour.
On the basis of this data, the auditors carry out an analysis in which your energy consumption is examined over time and the existing energy flows and their influence are evaluated. TÜV AUSTRIA uses the results to create individual energy indicators for you. In the end, a catalogue of measures for the improvement of your energy consumption is created.
TÜV AUSTRIA summarises all results in a report for you and once again explains in detail the proposed measures to increase efficiency.
The auditor then presents this report to your company. Here, TÜV AUSTRIA is of course still available to answer your questions.
