COMPANY DIRECTORS - who know that Energy Management excellence is reflected in their share price. International studies leave no doubt about the correlation between how companies manage the energy use and the premium given by the stock market. A correlation that should be fully leveraged. Rising concerns about climate change and other damage from burning fossil fuels similarly place a firm's energy use under more intense scrutiny. Energy consumption is also one critical factor that may be replica watches uk subjected to scrutiny by institutional investors and corporate social responsibility (CSR) analysts.


CEOs - and other senior management who need to know that, whether energy is a major or replica rolex minor expense, it is being managed to the highest possible standards. Micromanaging expenses that are well understood, while ignoring significant and persistent over-use of energy is not the stuff of well run companies.


CFOs - who want to be sure that energy costs have been optimised. Energy costs are not 'overhead', 'fixed', or 'uncontrollable'. They are an expense that directly contributes to meeting business objectives. Introducing zero-based budgeting, accountability, and best-practice energy accounting, are proven success strategies. The return on an energy management initiative we undertake is typically between 25% and 200%. With these rates, replica watches uk the right question is not "what will it cost", but "is there any limit to how much can we invest"?


Facilities Managers - who need to know the where, when, how, and why energy is used. The daily objective is to eliminate complaints and avoid having to spend beyond the budget. With tight resources it's tough to do all the maintenance and training and meet the standard that's needed. Energy management (not "a project here, a project there") offers the means to deliver lower quickly, and lower costs, year after year. But working out those savings requires a deep understanding of what makes up that total monthly consumption.

Energy Audits

The term 'energy audit' can mean a one-hour walk-around by a lighting salesman or a fifteen-month fully metered academic exercise by a bevy of PhD candidates.
A professional energy audit also serves to provide an official starting point from which accumulated savings can be tracked and measured. This applies not only to consumption and demand savings, but also to greenhouse gas emission savings, fossil fuel depletion savings, etc.
One popular arrangement is to structure energy audits in line with Australian Standard 3598/2000, as follows. Other formats can be matched on request.



  Australian Standard 3598/2000 Definition Typical Methodology

Level 3
Broadly equating to a Detailed Audit

A Level 3 audit provides a detailed analysis of energy usage, the savings that can be made, and the cost of achieving those savings. It may cover the whole site or may concentrate on an individual item, such as a single industrial process or one of the services. The auditor may often employ a specialist to carry out specific parts of an audit or may need to install local metering and logging.

The report from a Level 3 audit often forms the justification for substantial investment by the owner or an energy performance contractor. Detailed economic analysis with appropriate level of accuracy is required.

A Level 3 audit is expected to provide a firm estimate of savings and costs. Accuracy of figures would be within +10% for costs and -10% for benefits.

Two auditors on site for four or five days.  Work completed within 60 days.

All energy purchasing, conversion, end-use, accounting, and management issues studied.


A Level 2 audit identifies the sources of energy to a site, the amount of energy supplied, and what the energy is used for. It also identifies areas where savings may be made, recommends measures to be taken, and provides a statement of costs and potential savings.

A Level 2 audit is an energy use survey which is expected to provide a preliminary assessment of costs and savings. Accuracy of figures would generally be within ±20%.

One or two auditors on site for two or three days. Work completed within 45 days

Level 1
Sometimes referred to as a Scoping Audit

A Level 1 audit, sometimes called an overview, allows the overall energy consumption of the site to be evaluated to determine whether energy use is reasonable or excessive. It provides initial benchmarks of the site so that the effect of energy measures can be tracked and evaluated. It may be in the form of a desktop study, however the information given to, or gathered by, the auditor needs to be sufficient to enable the overall level of efficiency of the site to be determined.

A Level 1 audit is expected to give an overview which provides rough orders of savings and costs. Accuracy of figures would generally be within ±40%.

One auditor on site for one day. Work completed within 30 days
