Energy accounting is appropriate for both public and private buildings. According to the Energy Act, for buildings with a total useful floor area over 500 m2 which are in use of state authorities, local communities, public agencies, public funds, public institutions, public commercial institutions and other public entities that are indirect users of the state budget or local community budget, the Government may adopt annual energy efficiency targets. For the said buildings their managers need to keep energy accounting, which includes information on the types, prices and quantities of energy consumed.
