Implementation of Article 8 EED 2012/27/EU in Austria

To implement the EU Energy Efficiency Directive 2012/27/EU, Austria enacted the Law on Energy Efficiency. In this Austrian Energy Efficiency Act, large companies are obligated to carry out an energy audit every four years or to implement a certified energy or environmental management system with an integrated energy audit. If a company chooses option 1, the energy audit must be done by a qualified external auditor. If the company chooses option 2, the energy audits can be carried out also by qualified internal auditors. With the Energy Efficiency Act, Austria also defined the qualification criteria for energy auditors.

Also additional criteria to Annex VI of the EED are defined by the Austrian Law on Energy Efficiency for energy audits. All defined criteria must be considered within energy audits. An energy audit must be carried out relating to the process structure of the European Standard EN 16247-1 Energy Audits - General Requirements. The EN 16247-1 includes the process steps for the audit process, as data collection, involvement of interested parties, on-site visits, analysis of data and reporting.
The Austrian Energy Agency is the Monitoring Body for the Energy Efficiency Act in Austria on behalf of the

Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economics and evaluates Austria‘s progress in regard to energy efficiency.
