What is an energy audit?
An energy audit is a survey of energy use across an organization, looking at all aspects of energy use, from the scheduling of machinery to the efficiency of lighting. An energy audit can be a stand-alone activity or part of an energy management system and is aimed at identifying where energy – and money – can be saved.
Across Europe, each member state is required to develop a scheme to meet the requirements laid out in the EU Directive. In the UK the Government have created the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
