Energy Assessments

Energy Conservation delivers energy audits for all types of building and site to Levels 1 to 3 Australia New Zealand Standard 2014:3598.  

A full audit identifies the best solutions for more complex situations and technologies.  We can also deliver you a streamlined energy assessment focused on particular areas of your site or business with the best potential to save energy and money.  Steps in an audit or assessment include:

  • Initial on-site discussions with key stakeholders to identify issues and priorities

  • Assessment of electricity bills, retail and network tariffs and analysis of meter data

  • Site inspection to assess key energy using plant & equipment

  • Where appropriate, sub-metering of equipment, and/or thermal imaging to determine temperatures and insulation properties

  • Establishment of energy use by equipment types

  • Identification of potential Energy Conservation Measures (ECM)

  • Further discussion with stakeholders to select most suitable ECM for investigation

  • Presentation of outcomes to stakeholders and delivery of assessment/audit report

  • Preparation of a suitable implementation strategy

Our presentation and report will summarise the most promising energy-saving actions, with information on potential cost savings, the capital cost of implementing actions and the return on investment. This provides you with the basis for a sound plan to implement actions and take control of your energy costs.
