Voluntary and supported Motiva energy audits are comprehensive surveys of energy use and energy-saving opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises and municipalities.

The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment supports the voluntary energy audits of small and medium-sized enterprises and municipalities. The support is conditional – the recipient must comply with the implementation and reporting guidelines specific to the audit model and use auditors certified by Motiva.

Do the following

1 Visit Motiva’s website for instructions on auditing and to learn about the various audit models.

2 Select the audit targets.

3 Select auditors who have been qualified by Motiva. Auditors can be from the same organisation or third-party auditors.

4 Apply for support through Business Finland’s e-services. If you apply for support, the audit cannot start before the support application has been submitted.

5 Carry out the audit in accordance with the instructions.

6 Submit a payment application through Business Finland’s e-services.

7 Implement the energy-saving measures found in the energy audit.

You can find more detailed instructions for conducting an energy audit on the Motiva website.
