In 2012, MEMR enacted Bylaw No. 73 of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Law that requires large energy consumers to conduct an energy audit of their facilities every three years.  The Bylaw defines large energy consumers as those consuming more than 50 tons of oil equivalent per year. MEMR is developing its plans for implementation of the mandatory audit requirement and is seeking comment from all concerned parties.  Feedback from these workshops will reflect on a set of recommendations for MEMR to consider when developing the bylaw implementation plan.
