Energy audit for companies

A new legal statute (Act LVII of 2015 on Energy Efficiency) - as a result of introducing 2012/27 EU directive to the Hungarian Jurisdiction - obliges large companies in Hungary to perform a mandatory energy audit. The Hungarian Energy and Public Utility Regulatory Authority (HEA) as a proceeding authority, set up a deadline until 31 December 2016 to perform the energy audit. One of the most important provisions of the Act is that the audit has to be repeated every four years at large companies starting from the current year.

Apart from performing the audit, Act CXCVI of 2015 on the Amendment of Certain Energy Acts prescribes that every qualified undertaking shall register at the HEA website until 30 June every year ( in 2016 this deadline was 20 January).

energetic auditUnder the Energy Efficiency Act all qualified undertakings which meet the following criteria: having more than 250 employees; or their annual turnover exceeds EUR 50M; or their balance sheet total exceeds EUR 43M are obliged to perform a mandatory audit.
