An Energy Audit It is the basic tool to be able to identify the energy saving in the companies. It consists in the realization of a diagnosis that allows to know the situation of the company with regard to the energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This diagnosis identifies the energy saving and efficiency measures that could be implemented in order to minimize consumption and reduce the carbon footprint.

The Energy efficiency It is a practice that aims to reduce energy consumption. Energy efficiency is the efficient use of energy to optimize production processes using less energy and to produce more goods and services. In other words, produce more with less energy. It's not about saving light, it's about lighting up better by consuming less electricity, for example. Energy efficiency also significantly reduces the carbon footprint.


Energy audits must be carried out by duly qualified energy auditors. Energy consumption should be studied in buildings or industrial facilities, including transportation. In the energy audits, detailed and validated studies will be carried out for the proposed measures thus facilitating clear information on the potential of savings, always from a cost-benefit analysis and with a period of return of the investment.
