Energy audit

Ener­gy audits are con­duct­ed to opti­mize the ener­gy con­sump­tion and costs relat­ed to the building’s oper­a­tion. It is a com­plex process per­formed in three main stages:

 

  • Data col­lec­tion — the first stage con­sists of doc­u­men­ta­tion review, inspec­tion of the facil­i­ty and mea­sure­ments and inven­to­ry­ing the devices mak­ing up the HVAC sys­tems and elec­tri­cal sys­tems. More­over, data from ener­gy invoic­es and data relat­ed to tech­ni­cal main­te­nance of the facil­i­ty are col­lect­ed.
  • Data analy­sis — as part of the sec­ond stage, an analy­sis of data col­lect­ed dur­ing stage one is per­formed. This forms the basis for prepa­ra­tion of a numer­i­cal mod­el of the build­ing which illus­trates the ener­gy con­sump­tion areas.
  • Find­ings and rec­om­men­da­tions — the last stage con­sists in pre­sen­ta­tions of improve­ments aim­ing at ener­gy con­sump­tion sav­ings and opti­miza­tion.

 

Audits are con­duct­ed for indi­vid­ual facil­i­ties and for net­worked projects.
