An energy audit is the foundation for effective retrofit work. It is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s). As a result it offers at a minimum a description of the building, its characteristics and its envelope, details of its energy and water consumption and costs, and subsequently recommendations for adequate technical and organizational measures to increase the energy efficiency of the audited building.
The Energy Audit Firm Accreditation scheme is intended to ensure a minimum level of competency among energy auditing companies and the audit staff they employ.
Audits carried out under the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy’s “Directive on Energy & Water Efficiency of Buildings for Government Entities in Dubai” will be performed by audit firms accredited under this scheme. Audit firms will be retained to carry out these audits and each audit will have to bear the signature of an auditor meeting the qualification requirements of this scheme.
The Energy Audit Firm Accreditation scheme for Dubai sets out requirements and establishes criteria for the assessment and accreditation of Energy Audit Firms, and it is the basis upon which the register of Accredited Energy Audit Firms has been established. This accreditation scheme may be reviewed from time to time by the Energy Auditor Accreditation Board and revisions published on the RSB’s website.
A CHANGE IN THE RSB’S ENERGY AUDITOR ACCREDITATION SCHEME
Effective 22 November 2015, all applicants for Energy Auditor Accreditation will be required to possess the qualification of either AEE Certified Energy Auditor (CEA), AEE Certified Energy Manager (CEM), ASHRAE Building Energy Assessment Professional (BEAP) or equivalent. The qualification of AEE Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP), albeit recommended to possess, will not be sufficient to accredit Energy Auditors.
Update: Applicants, please ensure cheque payments are payable to: Regulatory & Supervisory Bureau.
