Detailed Energy Audit

The fundamental goal of energy management is to produce goods and provide services with the least cost and least environmental effect. The term energy management means many things to many people. One definition of energy management is: "The judicious and effective use of energy to maximize profits (minimize costs) and enhance competitive positions"


Audit scope: The audit team must decide on the initial scope of the audit. This includes which systems will be investigated and the depth of the investigations. Facility maintenance personnel may already suspect where significant energy wastes are and what tests will be required to quantify them. This information is usually the basis for deciding on the type of audit. Audit scope can always be expanded later if initial results lead to deeper testing. However, it is helpful to establish early the criteria for allowing the scope to be expanded along with how other phases of the process will be affected.

Baseline data gathering: An energy audit relies heavily on comparisons between expected energy use and actual use. Actual energy use is quantified as baseline and measured data. Baseline data is data that represents a normal operating state and is used as a point of reference for future changes. Most measured data is gathered later during an audit investigation, but baseline data is gathered primarily from existing documents. The most common sources of baseline energy use data are utility bills. Billing information should cover at least the preceding 12 months. However, gathering information from over a few years may better represent any seasonal or long-term trends.

Other documentation that is useful when planning an energy audit or analyzing results includes equipment specifications, manufacturer recommendations for testing equipment, and maintenance records. Audit team members may also want to interview personnel who work on or near major equipment about their observations and suggestions.

Plant profile: Preliminary information is used to create a plant profile. This is a snapshot view of the facility including square footage, energy expenditures, significant loads, control system setpoints, and other basic facts.

Conducting the energy audit

The auditing portion of an energy audit consists of two phases. First, the core members of the audit team conduct an investigation and then help prepare an audit report. The supporting members of the audit team are also involved in preparing the audit report. Outside contractors may be involved in any phase for their expertise or specialized tools.

Audit investigations: An audit investigation involves the inspection of each system within the scope of the audit. It traces from the source of energy or the resource to each point of use. A variety of test instruments is used extensively during the investigation to identify energy waste and other abnormal conditions. The audit assesses the efficiency, physical condition, and operating profile of the equipment, including the duty cycle, load changes, and controls.
