Energy Audit is a detailed study of a plant or facility to explore potential areas for Energy Conservation and Improving Energy Efficiency. Mainly an Energy Audit (especially Industrial Energy Audit) consits of 2 parts - Electrical Energy Audit and Thermal Energy Audit. This exercise is carried out by Certified Energy Auditors who are experts in the field of Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency especially for Industrial Plants.
Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency are two terms which are used interchangeably. However the fact is that although the 2 terms are related they are not the same. Energy Conservation refers to arresting or stopping energy wastage by plugging the holes in the system. Whereas Energy Efficiency refers to improvements in the existing system so that it performs more efficiently either by using retrofit equipment or by modifying operational parameters for optimium energy usage.
Electrical Energy Audit primarily consists of study of Electrical Utilities such as Transformers, Power Distribution System, Motors, Power Quality Checks (including Harmonics), Pumps, Compressors etc.
Thermal Energy Audit consists primarily consists of study of Thermal Utilities such as Boilers, Thermic Fluid Heaters, Steam Distribution System, Cooling Towers etc.
For specific Industrial Energy Audit Requirements Thermography of the system is also carried out. Some Industries also need a Power Quality Focus Energy Audit which primarily consists of checking harmonics level in the present power system, analyzing the sources and effects of the same and submitting a report with recommendations of appropriate Harmonic Filters. The next steps include designing and implementatin of Harmonic Filters.
Our dedicated team of B.E.E. Certified Energy Auditors and Energy Managers and Experts can reduce energy consumption of any type of unit. We undertake a detailed Energy Audit of your Plant or Facility and recommend Techno-Commercially viable Solutions (including Retrofits) and modifications that are guaranteed to show significant reduction in energy consumption through Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency. With our team of Certified Energy Auditors and Energy Managers you can be rest assured that your plant can achieve significant savings.
Our Services Include :
1. Pre-visit Analysis or Offsite Analysis to estimate Energy Saving Possible. Also popularly known as Walk-through Energy Audit.
2. Onsite Visit for a detailed Study of your Plant / Facility. This includes actual measurements, interaction with plant professionals, analysis of collated data etc.
3. Post the onsite phase is offsite phase i.e. Preparaiton of Energy Audit Report with Findings, Analysis, Losses, Savings Calculation, Recommendations etc.
4. Solution Implementation or Energy Saving Project.
5. Follow-up visits to carry out Savings Monitoring to prove the savings committed and calculated during Energy Audit and included in Energy Audit Report is actually taking place in the plant.
We have executed Energy Audit and Energy Optimization Projects for various diverse and leading Industries across the Country and for Overseas Clients as well.
Generally an Energy Audit is recommended once every 1-2 years depending on size and power consumption of a plant. It is also recommended that a walk-through energy audit be carried out in the plant atleast once a year. An annual walk-through energy audit ensures that plant is performing at an optimum level and Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency becomes a way of life and not just a one time activity. We carry out walk-through Energy Audit as well.

Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency through Energy Audit is highly recommended for all Industrial Plants especially energy intensive Units which can significantly save Energy and reduce Production Costs. Other units where Energy Audits have not been carried out can certainly benefit from an Energy Audit through Energy Conservation and Energy Efficiency improvement.
