EAS Audits: Compliance and Energy Efficiency Solutions

The EU Energy Efficiency Directive requires all non SMEs to have an energy audit every four years. In Ireland these audits are termed EAS audits, the relevant legislation being SI 426 of 2014.

EAS audits are managed by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI). A requirement is that the auditor must be registered with SEAI, be a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and hold a minimum level of insurance. Bob Sutcliffe, a director of Environmental Efficiency, is on the SEAI list of approved auditors.

The energy audit will first review historic patterns of energy use to determine causes of variations in energy use. For example fuel use for space heating will be reviewed against outdoor temperature data. This review will help determine whether the control systems are optimised and inform the auditor of areas to examine in detail during the site visit.

The site visit will review all significant energy users, how energy use is controlled, whether they are inefficiencies and departures from best practice. Recommendations are then made in the report together with implementation costs and financial benefit.

Environmental Efficiency has over 25 years of experience in reducing energy use and decarbonisation. This has included work for large companies such as Meta, KPMG, General Electric, Energia, BOC Gases, One 51 Group, Aquilant Ltd, Ricardo AES Corp and Compass Ireland.
