‘All companies over a certain size are now required by law to carry out an energy audit’

The EU EED is part of the EU’s action plan to address global warming. Of significance to businesses is Article 8 of the Directive that requires large organisations to carry out an energy audit by 5 December 2015 and every four years thereafter.

This EU Directive has been transposed into Irish law as SI 426 of 2014. In the UK, Article 8 of the Directive has been implemented by a scheme known as ESOS. In summary, the Directive requires large organisations to have a high quality energy audit undertaken/signed off by a competent person. HEG has a team of SEAI Registered Energy Auditors trained to analyse your utility bills and building equipment and come up with financially sound energy saving opportunities, including:
