Survey open on energy audit standards

A survey is under way to provide feedback on Australia’s energy auditing standards, and ultimately help businesses identify and implement high-quality energy-efficiency projects. 

Standards Australia released a series of standards for energy auditing in 2014 that set out the minimum requirements for commissioning and conducting three prescribed types of audits that identify opportunities for cost-effective investments to improve the energy performance of organisations or sites.

These include:

AS/NZS 3598.1:2014 Energy audits – Commercial buildings

AS/NZS 3598.2:2014 Energy audits – Industrial and related activities

AS/NZS 3598.3:2014 Energy audits – Transport related activities

The EN-001 Energy Management and Auditing technical committee is now running two surveys to assess how well the standards are meeting market needs, and the needs of energy users. One survey is aimed at energy auditors, and the other is for energy audit clients.

The surveys take approximately 10–15 minutes to complete:

Standards Australia is also hosting a webinar on July 7 from 10–11.30am (AEST), that will provide a brief introduction to the standards and give more context on the survey. The webinar can be accessed on the day via this link.
