ENERGY AUDIT

Energy audit is the collection, processing and analysis of data on the use of energy resources in order to assess energy saving opportunities and potential and to draw conclusions.

OBJECTIVES ISSUES

– Reduction of FER (fuel and energy resources) consumption for own needs through introduction of energy-saving technologies and equipment;

– Reduction of losses during distribution and consumption of FER;

– Creation of new or modernization of existing fuel and energy accounting systems.

– identification of sources of irrational energy costs and unjustified energy losses;

– Identification of energy saving and energy efficiency potential;

– development of a targeted, comprehensive energy-saving program.

According to Paragraph 4 of Article 16 of the Law "On energy saving and energy efficiency improvement", State Energy Register subjects, except for state institutions, undergo mandatory energy audit at least once every 5 years. Energy audit is carried out in accordance with the Rules of Energy Audit.
ENERGY AUDIT – THE MAIN STAGES

Based on the results of the energy audit, the energy audit organization shall draw up a conclusion consisting of three main parts:

Following the results of the energy audit, the GER subject develops an Action Plan on energy saving and energy efficiency improvement in the form according to the Annex to the Requirements and is approved by the first head of the GER subject with indication of the term of its approval.

According to Paragraph 2 of Article 9 of the Law "On energy saving and energy efficiency improvement", State Energy Register subjects shall provide the National Electric Power and Energy Saving Development Institute with a copy of the energy audit report and the approved action plan.
