1. Energy efficiency plan

Having a documented plan to monitor energy and reduce its use will help achieve energy efficiency in a structured and informed manner. A plan should document how, where and when energy use will be monitored and how the results will be used to improve energy efficiency over time. Reducing energy use for the same quality and quantity of production has clear economic and environmental advantages.

No best practice guideline has been defined for Energy efficiency plan.

Minimum Standard

Producers should have a written plan that identifies targets and methods for energy use reduction within their production operation. This should encompass a monitoring programme and energy use reduction strategies including engineering solutions and training to improve energy efficiency. The aim of the plan should be to reduce the amount of energy used for the same quality and quantity of production.
