Draft standards on energy audits open for public comment

Tuesday, 11 February, 2014

Standards Australia has announced the release of three draft standards on energy audits for public comment. The standards are designed to assist organisations when deciding on what type of audit to implement, as well as providing an outline in best practice for energy auditors.

“Auditing energy use is important as it enables companies to determine how efficiently energy is being consumed and identify cost-saving opportunities,” said Dr Bronwyn Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Standards Australia. She added that, regardless of size or type of organisation, energy audits are an important step to achieve economic and environment benefits.

“In a competitive market, energy audits identify measures to increase energy efficiency and reduce energy costs, empowering businesses to become more resilient and sustainable for the future.”

Stakeholders may now participate in the revision of a suite of standards regarding general requirements for energy audits for commercial buildings, industrial sites and transport:

“The standards recognise the different approaches to energy auditing but strive to harmonise common aspects in order to bring more clarity and transparency to the whole process,” noted Dr Evans.

Australian Standards are available through SAI Global at www.saiglobal.com/shop.
