The Department of Energy has published draft regulations for mandatory reporting of energy consumption by large energy users. This forms part of their development of an Energy Efficient Monitoring System (EEMS) to track the efficient consumption of energy within South Africa and the trends involved. Companies with annual energy consumption exceeding the threshold of 180 000 gigajoules per year will be required to report on their energy consumption. Companies that exceed 400 000 gigajoules per year will have to submit mandatory energy management plans.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss the impact of these energy reporting requirements for your business.
