Participants will leave the training with:

  • A broad awareness of energy audit basics;
  • An understanding of the different audit types defined in the Australian Standard;
  • The ability to apply the Australian Standard's energy audit parameters; and
  • Knowledge on best practice energy audit reporting.


This 2 x half-day online training program will give energy audit practitioners the skills and knowledge to deliver energy audits that meet Australian Standard 3598:2014. 

The program is practical and hands-on, using workshops and group exercises to lead participants through the process of delivering an Australian Standard compliant energy audit relating to:

  • 3598.1 Energy Audits - Commercial buildings; and
  • 3598.2 Energy Audits - Industrial and related activities.

Please note that the content of the course relates to audit process rather than being an instruction on energy saving techniques and technologies.

Accurate and consistent energy auditing is critical to the uptake and quality of energy efficiency projects as it is often used as the basis for business case justification, project design and as a baseline to measure post-upgrade savings.

By providing your clients with Standard-compliant energy audits, you’ll give them the confidence to increase both the quantity and quality of their energy efficiency projects. Your clients will be better positioned to identify opportunities, develop powerful business cases, design innovative projects and to effectively measure post-upgrade savings.


In 2014, Standards Australia released the standard for energy auditing: AS/NZS 3598:2014, which sets out minimum requirements for commissioning and conducting three prescribed types of audits that identify opportunities for cost effective investments to improve energy performance.

Unlike the previous standard, this standard is a series of standards focused on particular economic sectors:

  • 3598.1 Energy audits – Commercial buildings
  • 3598.2 Energy audits – Industrial and related activities
  • 3598.3 Energy audits – Transport related activities

This series of standards are a significant revision to the previous standard, AS/NZS 3598:2000. They are more rigorous, are outcomes-based and are focused on providing audit customers with actionable energy conservation measures. 

To support the implementation of the standard across the industry, the EEC worked with the NSW government to develop a quick reference guide focused on commercial and industrial audits.


Bruce Rowse has worked in energy efficiency since 2002 and sits on standards committee EN-001, participating in the major upgrade of AS/NZS 3598 Energy Audits in 2014 and is the Chair of the Efficiency Valuation Organisation’s training committee.
