Energy Audits

An energy audit is a preliminary activity towards instituting energy efficiency programs in an establishment. It is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s). The energy audit is a feasibility study. Not only it serves to identify energy use among the various services and to identify opportunities for energy conservation, but also†it is†a crucial first step in establishing an energy management programme.

The purpose of an energy audit is to reduce operating costs by reducing energy consumption and the government has estimated that most companies can reduce their energy consumption by 10% to 20%.

With the Climate Change Levy increasing most companies' energy costs by 13% or more, energy efficiency is even more important now than it was in the past. Experience shows that these savings are usually best achieved by performing an energy audit. Investment on any Energy saving device qualifies for 80% depreciation in the 1st year under the Income Tax Act.

When deciding whether or not to carry out an energy audit is a good starting point is to assume that you will save at least 10% of your current energy consumption. By reviewing Utility bills you can get an indication of the savings to be made and investment that you should be prepared to put into the auditing process.

In most industrial sites about two-thirds of the energy is consumed by electric motors. In its lifetime the cost of energy consumed by an electric motor may be 100 times its purchase cost. So the reduction of losses in the motor itself is very important and modern electric motor design can reduce the energy loss in the motor by up to 30%. Many pumps and motors are operated at full power constantly, irrespective of process needs, and in some sites this offers the potential of large cost reductions.

An energy audit will identify all these issues and calculate the potential savings to be made. An energy audit is a significant investment and many man-hours' will be needed to find out where energy is being consumed in a building, production plant or utility facility. It is important that a thorough log of consumptions on each spur is made because excessive energy is sometimes used in the most unlikely places. In the case of fluctuating work or process loads, the monitoring of each energy consuming piece of plant may require several days to complete.

Our professional team excels at developing course of action plans for maximizing your property's energy efficiency. Part of this process is to perform a free investment grade audit to identify opportunities to improve efficiency, save costs, and increase occupancy satisfaction.
