Energy Audits: Optimising Efficiency and Cost Reduction

Where organisations are more concerned with reducing energy costs than decarbonisation, we can carry out an energy audit to identify options to reduce energy use and cost. This will prioritise cost savings over decarbonisation.

Where the goal is to decarbonise a more holistic approach is required as an energy audit is restricted to Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions (emissions from your own activities and purchased energy). A decarbonisation project will include Scope 3 (indirect emissions associated with your supply chain).

Environmental Efficiency has over 25 years of experience in reducing energy use and decarbonisation. This has included work for large companies such as Meta, KPMG, General Electric, Energia, BOC Gases, One 51 Group, Aquilant Ltd, Ricardo AES Corp and Compass Ireland.

Our team includes mechanical and electrical engineers, and we are listed on the UK ESOS and the Ireland EAS registers.

The energy audit will first review historic patterns of energy use to determine causes of variations in energy use. For example fuel use for space heating will be reviewed against outdoor temperature data. This review will help determine whether the control systems are optimised and inform the auditor of areas to examine in detail during the site visit.

The site visit will review all significant energy users, how energy use is controlled, whether they are inefficiencies and departures from best practice. Recommendations are then made in the report together with implementation costs and financial benefit.

The current carbon footprint and the projected footprint after implementation will also be reported. Targets suitable for inclusion in Environmental management Systems will be proposed.
