INFORMATION OBLIGATION RELATED TO ENERGY SAVING

The new information obligation regarding energy saving for companies and organisations is effective as of 1 July 2019. This information obligation requires each company and organisation to conduct a quick scan to determine the scope of their energy information obligation. A company / organisation that falls within these parameters is required to submit a report to the competent authority in which a distinction is made between the energy-saving measures applied and those that still have to be carried out. The point of departure is a list with accredited measures.

YET ANOTHER ENERGY OBLIGATION. WHY?

The 2017 National Energy Study (NEV) indicated that various 2020 energy and climate objectives will not be attained. One conclusion is that the competent authorities possess insufficient information for focused supervision and enforcement of the energy-saving requirements. Implementation of the information obligation envisages acceleration of the data provision needed to take the appropriate action as indicated by the study.

WHEN SHOULD THE INFORMATION OBLIGATION BE FULFILLED

The date of 1 July 2019 is also the deadline for compliance with this energy-saving information obligation. According to Article 2.15 (2) of the Activities Decree, currently in the works, a new report should be submitted every four years. A submission deadline of 5 December 2019 has been set for companies that fall under the energy audit obligation within the framework of the EED.
