Energy Audit obligations — a roadmap to 2019 building on national feedback and best practices

The purpose of this session is to share feedback and best practices, and to exchange views on the transposition of Article 8 of the EED. We present the results of implementation assessments in various Member States, in particular including energy audits related to the EN 16247 series and the EN ISO 50001 Energy Management standard. We will share the findings of these assessments with the Commission, Member States and industry, with respect to raise awareness about the benefits of these standards. We then will exchange views with the audience, aiming for high quality recommendations on a roadmap to 2019 on energy audit obligations, backed up by all relevant stakeholders. 

The event targets EC policy officers dealing with the Energy Union, with the EED art.8, and with the financeability of energy efficiency projects in particular; MS representatives in charge of national implementation of the EED Directive; Energy efficiency and energy management experts in various sectors; and NGOs with an interest in energy efficiency and the environment.

The event will be chaired by Bernard Gindroz, Chair of the CEN/CENELEC Sector Forum on Energy Managment. The program balances between short presentations (limited to conclusions and questions guiding further discussion), followed by a highly interactive moderated panel discussion. A live and online voting tool ( will be used to capture the audience’s opinion and live Tweeting during the event will be used to engage the broad Energy Union community.

The roundtable is part 2 of a tripod-approach that creates the highest possible momentum in one week: the conclusions from the transposition assessment workshop on Monday 19 June, are immediately shared and scrutinized with the Commission and other stakeholders during the policy conference. Then, on Thursday 22 June, conclusions and concrete recommendations are immediately fed back to the MS representatives via the CEN/CENELEC SFEM plenary session.
