This involves visiting the building or facility in order to identify energy conservation measures and energy saving opportunities and also involves analysis of utility billing information, building equipment and operating data. It also involves brief interviews with site-operating personnel, a brief review of facility utility bills and other operating data, and a walk-through of the facility to become familiar with the building operation and to identify any glaring areas of energy waste or inefficiency.
These walkthrough audits have yielded useful areas for improvement and highlighted immediate actions for implementation.
The Eenovators general audit expands on the walkthrough audit by collecting more detailed information about the facility’s operations and by performing an in-depth evaluation of energy conservation measures. Utility bills are collected for a 12- to 36-month period to allow the team of auditors evaluate the facility’s energy demand rate structures and energy usage profiles. Where interval meter data is available, the detailed energy profiles that such data makes possible will typically be analyzed for signs of energy waste.
Additional metering of specific energy-consuming systems is often performed to supplement utility data. These audits have led to energy-saving recommendations and projects leading to increased conservation and reduced billing.
INVESTMENT GRADE AUDIT
Eenovators is pioneering these audits locally that involve detailed assessment of capital intensive improvements and require rigorous engineering analysis. The investment-grade audit expands on the general audit and relies on a complete engineering study in order to detail technical and economic issues necessary to justify the investment related to the projected transformation.
Eenovators as an Energy Service Company assists clients to identify, evaluate, and plan for a specific list of measures to undertake towards efficiency savings and the associate costs to effectively plan for return on investment financially and environmentally.
