Energy audits

Compulsory energy diagnosis.

Energy efficiency promotion and improvement (Italian Leg. Decree 102/2014).

The Leg. Decree 4 July 2014 no. 102 establishes that big companies and energy-intensive companies perform an Energy diagnosis (DE) in the production sites found in the national territory by no later than 5 December 2015 and thereafter every 4 years.

In order to comply with the law, Lucen proposes a DE that analyses the efficiency state of the casing, systems and production cycles related with each energy vectorfound in the company.

The DE includes the analyses of the various components and expresses a result able to guide customers towards intervention choices with a cost/benefit assessment of the eventual requalification.

Big companies:

  • Have more than 250 employees

In the event of breach – failing to file the DE to the institutions in charge – they can incur into fines spanning from 4,000 to 40,000 €.

The non-energy-intensive SMEs do not have to perform the energy-diagnosis, but they can access to funds to cover the costs incurred to perform it.
