Large organisations subject to regular energy audits

18th July 2013

Article 8 under the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU), requires that large organisations undertake an assessment of energy consumption with the first audit to be completed by December 2015 and every four years thereafter.

Forcing large companies to assess their energy efficiency will save £1.9 billion over 15 years, says DECC in a consultation outlining a scheme due to launch in 2015. Source:

Large organisations being defined as:

  • more than 250 employees and
  • an annual turnover exceeding €50 million.

In order to meet Article 8 under the EU Energy Efficiency Directive as outlined above, an Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme is currently under consultation, click here for more details. The consultation period for the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme closes on 03 October 2013.
