Energy Efficiency Audit

An energy audit will provide your business with an impartial, expert assessment of how energy is used at your premises, as well as recommendations for initiatives to reduce consumption and spend.

Why have an energy efficiency audit?

Often buildings have many chances to reduce their energy use and therefore their costs.  An energy efficiency audit identifies these opportunities and details how much energy could be saved.  The audit can provide you with a business case for investment in technology that improves your energy efficiency.

The energy audit will be carried out by a qualified and registered energy assessor. They will undertake a thorough survey of the building using measurements, photographs and thermography.  They will assess the lighting, heating and insulation systems, the building construction type and its usage to create a detailed audit report.

Recommendations will be prioritised by payback period,the time it takes to recoup the cost of implementing an initiative through the money saved on your energy bills. The audit will also show you how energy efficient your building is compared with properties of similar structure and use.

What does an energy efficiency audit involve?

The audit will involved looking at different areas of your building. The type of lighting used in the premises will be assessed to determine whether energy efficient alternatives are available. Our engineers will look at how your heating and cooling systems are managed and review the settings and control types. Our equipment will judge your insulation levels to see where heat loss could be reduced.

We will also review the type of energy used to run the premises, and report on whether cheaper or lower carbon fuels or renewable energy would be more appropriate. We will not only look at the building but look at how equipment and machinery is used, and if savings can be made through more efficient operation. The audit is a visual inspection and so will not be invasive of the structure of the building.
