Increase Energy Efficiency and Save Taxes with an Energy Audit

The EU Energy Efficiency Directive stipulates that all companies that are NOT small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) according to the EU definition must carry out an energy audit. The German government has implemented this EU requirement into national law and an energy audit obligation by amending the Energy Services Act (EDL-G), which has been in force since the end of April 2015. Since the amendment of the EDL-G, energy-intensive companies have been required to have their energy consumption regularly audited according to sections 8 to 8d EDL-G.
As an alternative to an energy audit, obligated companies can introduce an energy management system according to ISO 50001 or an environmental management system according to the European EMAS Regulation. Companies that can already prove certification according to ISO 50001 or EMAS are exempt.

An energy audit is an important tool for identifying energy efficiency potential and disclosing essential energy flows. If you know how much energy is consumed in which areas of your company, potential savings can be quickly identified. At the same time, this enables you to comply with new legal requirements and benefit from tax breaks through, for example, the electricity tax peak compensation. In addition, the German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) subsidizes the introduction of an energy management system with up to 30% of the net investment costs through the BAFA energy audit guideline for the promotion of energy efficiency. This includes energy management software and commissioning, necessary hardware, and installation, as well as the expansion of existing systems.
