The Energy Audit Grant Programme

The DBJ’s Energy Audit Grant Programme provides a grant of J$200,000 to Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSME) to conduct an energy audit of their facility.  

The main objective of the programme is to assist MSMEs to make informed decisions regarding Energy Efficiency Measures (EEM) or Energy Opportunity Measures (EOM) and their associated energy-saving potential.

What Is an Energy Audit?

The purpose of an energy audit (sometimes called an ‘energy assessment or ‘energy study) is to determine where, when, why and how energy is used in a facility, and to identify opportunities to improve efficiency.

Energy auditing services under the DBJ’s Energy Audit Grant Programme is conducted with Certified Energy Managers (CEMs), also referred to as Energy Auditors.

The Energy Auditor leads the audit process and has to work closely with building owners, staff and other key participants throughout their respective organizations to ensure accuracy of data collection and appropriateness of energy efficiency recommendations.

Levels of an Energy Audit

Two levels of an energy audit may be conducted under the DBJ’s Energy Audit Grant Programme. Each audit level builds on the previous level.
