The scale developed consists of 5 factors. Factors related to the scale are energy efficiency factor (EEF); control factor (CF); automation factor (AF); educational factor (EF) and management factor (MF). The structures consisting of 37 items were supported with goodness of fit values. Chi-square is 451.77; degree of freedom is 138; p is 0,000 and the RMSEA value is 0.085. The analyzes were performed with SPSS and LISREL 9.1 program. Considering the values, it was decided that the scale was developed in a way suitable for measuring energy efficiency in enterprises.
