Audits

 

Pursuant to Decree-Law 23/2010 of 25 March, in its current wording, the EEGO is responsible for conducting audits and monitoring cogeneration production facilities and equipment, as well as the power-measuring equipment that enables and ensures the correct qualification of the facilities and the guarantee or certification of origin of the electricity produced. The audits are conducted in accordance with the provisions set out in the EEGO's Procedures Manual.

Three types of audits are envisaged:

    An initial audit, consisting of a set of checks and trials intended to confirm that the facilities transitioning to the new decree meet the applicable regulatory requirements so that the electricity produced can be certified by guarantees or certificates of origin.
  • Periodic audits, consisting of a set of checks and trials carried out periodically, pursuant to the legislation and regulations in force, and which are intended to confirm that the production facility is still meeting the applicable regulatory requirements so that the electricity produced can be certified by guarantees or certificates of origin;
  • Extraordinary audits, consisting of a set of checks and trials requested by one of the interested parties, with the aim of determining if the production facility meets, or is still meeting, the applicable regulatory requirements so that the electricity produced can be certified by guarantees or certificates of origin.
The audits are conducted either by the EEGO itself or by properly qualified auditors whose qualification to carry out the activity of providing auditing services for facilities producing electricity through cogeneration or from renewable energy sources is governed by the requirements set out in Law 75/2015 of 28 July. The selection process used to assign an auditor to a particular audit is based on objective, transparent and non-discriminatory criteria.
