Home / Our Services / Energy Audit


Energy audit also known as energy analysis, energy survey or energy evaluation is conducted in a commercial or industrial facility to examine the ways energy is currently used in that facility and identify some alternatives for reducing energy costs. The goals of an energy audits are:

    • To clearly identify the types and costs of energy use
    • To understand how the energy is being used and possibly wasted
    • To identify and analyze alternatives such as improved operational techniques and/or new equipment that could substantially reduce energy costs
  • To perform an economic analysis on those alternatives and determine which ones are cost effective for the business or industry involved

There are 3 phases of an energy audit:

  1. Preparation for the audit visit
  2. Performing the facility survey
  3. Implementing the audit recommendations
