New verification solution for electro-intensive companies

AENOR offers you the new verification solution for electro-intensive certified companies. This verification is mandatory for companies with this rating, in order to obtain subsidies included in the Royal Decree 1106/2020: Electro-intensive consumer statute and that of the Order calling for the granting of these subsidies.

What do we understand today by electro-intensive industry?

The electro-intensive sector is formed by those industries (metallurgical, chemical, steel and industrial gases) for which energy and electricity management are the primary factors in their processes. These activities generally belong to the basic industry, which is the one dedicated to the processing of raw materials and therefore requires a greater amount of labour and energy that other industrial sectors. In these industries, energy costs can reach 50% of production costs.

What is the new verification solution for electro-intensive companies?

The Ministerial Statute states that all applications must include a Report verified by a verifier accredited by the Spanish National Accreditation Body (ENAC) or any other National Agency to certify the part of the electrical consumption intended for activities in the sectors listed in Annex I of this Order, as well as, for said consumption, the amount of access tolls paid during 2020.

This verification will take place every year, i.e. it is recurring and the beneficiaries of these subsidies must have, prior to 16 December 2022,an audited Energy Management system that combines energy performance indicators according to the standard UNE-EN ISO 50001:2018.


All certifications related to energy efficiency, especially the standard standard UNE-EN ISO 50001:2018.
