Does your data centre already comply with the Energy Efficiency Directive ‘EED’?
The EED is a European directive that has been in place for several years and intends to stimulate energy saving in larger companies. If your company carries out an economic activity and has over 250 employees (FTE), or an annual turnover exceeding 50 million euros and an annual balance sheet exceeding 43 million euros, your company must carry out an energy audit every four years. The deadline for submitting the next audit report is no later than 31st December 2020.
Companies that have been participating in the Dutch multi-year agreements energy efficiency (Meerjarenafspraak Energie Efficiëntie; MJA-3 or MEE) and/or participate in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) also need to carry out and submit an EED energy audit before the end of this year.
The audit provides an overview of the energy flows of the various buildings, operations and transport and gives insight into potential energy-saving measures. The result of the energy audit is a list of cost-effective measures to decrease energy use.
The requirements of the audit are extensive and can be time consuming. Would you like support with complying to the EED? Or do you have any questions regarding the EED?
