Audits for larger companies

Required audits for large companies (EER/EED)

Non-SMEs (according to the European definition of an SME) are required under the European Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) to have an audit carried out every four years.

This Directive became effective in 2015.

Why should you call in Encon?

All Encon audits meet four key requirements:

    1. Practicality
      Encon always opts for sound technologies that work and have proven their reliability in the field. Encon's audits only focus on savings that pay themselves back over a reasonable period of time. Encon's audits always pay themselves back multiple times over, thanks to the savings opportunities revealed by the audit.
    2. Fewer burdens
      Because Encon can take care of both designing and implementing energy projects, it relieves its customers of the burden of implementing projects themselves.
    3. Guaranteed savings
      Due to our specific approach and our extensive experience in the field, Encon has been able to develop its own unique expertise. This ensures that the savings that were forecast during the earlier phase are actually achieved on the ground.
    4. Independence
      Encon operates in total independence. This gives Encon the freedom to choose the most cost-effective solutions from among all the options that are available on the market. The 'total cost of ownership' is our main motivation.

    Even though the audit is mandatory, Encon strives to derive maximum added value from it, our motto being: 'if you have to, you'd better get as much out of it as possible'.

    A two-step approach to guaranteed savings

    When performing an EED audit, two important principles are paramount to Encon:

    1. An audit should reveal significant savings with a short payback period.
    2. The audit should lead to effective savings measures and not end up in some drawer.

    An important additional advantage is the fact that Encon assists its customers in handling the administration and helps them to fill in the web application associated with the audit.
