Standard Energy Audit
This audit gives a comprehensive analysis of the energy systems of a facility. It involves both a preliminary audit and utility cost analysis. Further, the standard energy audit involves the establishment of baseline energy use, evaluation of energy measures within terms of energy and cost savings and cost effectiveness.
Off-site, the auditor establishes the utility's operational features through drawings and discussions along with utility managers. Standards and codes are reviewed and building and equipment use schedules are established. On-site, an inventory is taken of all the energy consuming equipment nameplate ratings of energy consumption. Metering equipment is installed to verify the energy consumption of the equipment. Based on the drawings, site survey, and utility analysis, the auditor built a baseline energy model. The Potential energy savings measures are then evaluated for their efficiency and payback.
