Conducting an Energy Audit is crucial in understanding the energy usage and specific energy needs of a building. Through such an activity, the Facility or the Building Managers will be able to find out answers to the questions raised through benchmarking a facility.
Further, the process will also lead to uncover the plausible causes for energy inefficiencies and scope for improvements that can be achieved through implementing facility specific Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs).
At Ogni, our Energy Engineering team has all the required skill and expertise gained through their vast experience in the field to conduct energy audits that follow guidelines and standards provided by the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
This involves a simple review of utility bills, a quick walk-through of the facility followed by interviews with facility personnel. This preliminary audit potentially helps in understanding some of the easily noticeable problems in the building.
This includes, in addition to the initial walk-through, a detailed energy analysis, solutions and life cycle costs for each measure. This also includes potential changes to operation and maintenance procedures and a list of potential capital-intensive measures that require more analysis.
This involves large capital investment projects that require intensive data collection, measurements, energy modelling, and large-scale implementation. This analysis is typically for projects that involve long term implementation and detailed project life cycle requirements.
