Energy Audits for SMEs

Enterprises that are Small or Medium are invited to apply through the official Application Form for a grant that can cover the cost of carrying out an energy audit. The energy audit must be to the level and detail as outlined in the Schedule Section of the Government Notices establishing the scheme, and must be done by a certified energy auditor chosen from the list of Energy Auditors which can be accessed on the website of the Regulator for Energy and Water Sources (REWS).

After reviewing the application, the Agency will inform the enterprise that it can proceed with the audit. Once the energy audit is complete and submitted to the Agency (both the summary template and the full report are required), the latter will ensure that the report meets the minimum requirements as detailed in the previously mentioned Schedule.  If the report meets the minimum requirements set out, the enterprise will receive the amount invoiced by the certified energy auditor capped up to the amounts as indicated below:

Grant
Category 1 Medium Sized Enterprises in the NACE Code C and I € 5,000
Category 2 Medium Sized Enterprises in all other NACE Codes € 3,000
Category 3 Small Sized Enterprises in the NACE Code C and NACE Code I subgroup 55 € 3,000
Category 4 Small Sized Enterprises in all other NACE Codes and NACE Code subgroups € 1,000
