Environmental Management & Information Obligation Act

The time has almost come: the duty to provide information. In addition to the existing Energy Saving Obligation, every organisation that consumes more than 50,000 kWh of electricity or 25,000 m3 in natural gas (equivalent) per year must comply with the Information Requirements before 1-7-2019. But what exactly does this mean and how can we help you with this?


How long do you have?


Energy saving obligation

Is a duty whereby organisations that fall under the Environmental Management Act must take mandatory measures for energy saving with a payback period of a maximum of five years.

The Energy Saving Obligation means that companies must comply with all energy saving measures for their specific sector of the Recognised Measure Lists (EML) with a payback period of five years or less. These are approximately twenty saving measures per EML.

NEW: the obligation to provide information. What should you do?

The Information Duty requires you to report the measures taken by the EML to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).

You have until 1 July to report which energy-saving measures you have taken or will take in the coming years. You do so by having an EML report made and reporting this to the e-counter at the RVO. The supervisor is the regional Environmental service. This is the party that can issue fines as of 1-7-2019.

Hero Balancer and implementation of the Environmental Management Act

Energy saving measures have been drawn up in the EML for nineteen branches. Of these, six branches are suitable for the Hero Balancer as an interpretation of a mandatory recognised measure: Healthcare & Welfare, Offices, Education, Sports & Recreation, Hotels & Restaurants and Retail.

Hero Balancer has been designated as an Energy Registration and Management System (EBS) and as an Energy Management System (EMS) on these six Approved Action Lists. The unique thing about Hero Balancer is that the Hero not only registers, but as one of the few proactive and 24/7 autonomously optimises your existing installation(s)!

It’s not without reason that Hero Balancer is regarded as a low-hanging fruit when it comes to simply and effectively completing obligations in terms of sustainability. We can help you to comply with the Environmental Management Act and/or the Information Duty!

The central heating system is not optimally adjusted at most offices, schools and homes. This has adverse consequences for energy consumption and comfort. To solve this problem, water heating must be applied.
