An energy audit fulfils the need of political and administrative authorities to be aware of the energy situation in their country: the state of the available resources, the means of energy production, transformation and transport installations, levels and patterns of consumption, prices and taxation, company results of energy suppliers, configuration and characteristics of markets. The study is divided into three sections: auditing the energy consumption of households, services, agriculture, industry and transport; energy supply channels and markets; and interaction between supply and consumption. The final section describes the interactions between constituent parts of the energy system, the main problems and decision nodes, and discusses ways to carry out an audit and reach agreement on its conclusions.
