From January 1, 2017 on, the new guideline for the promotion of energy management systems of December 20, 2016, will be effective. The guideline (German: Richtlinie für die Förderung von Energiemanagementsystemen vom 20. Dezember 2016 (Fundstelle: BAnz AT 29.12.2016 B1)) was mainly revised editorially. An important content-related change compared to the previous guideline is the cancellation of funding prerequisite certification of an alternative system according to appendix 2 of the German SpaEfV. All other measures such as the initial certification of an energy management system, the external consulting for the implementation of such a system, the acquisition and installation of measuring technology and software, as well as the training of employees to become energy or management representatives will still be funded with the known sums.

FUNDING PROGRAM ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS WILL BE CONTINUED IN 2017
