ENRAMS Energy Efficiency Audit (EEA) service is tailored to identify the latest technologies and cost effective opportunities available to our clients to reduce their energy consumption.
Our EEA’s look at the main use of energy within a building or facility to provide an analysis of both cost and effective energy efficiency opportunities.
We offer three levels of audits based on the Australian Energy Audits Standard AS/NZ 3598:2000.
Level 1 Audit
An introductory first step assessment investigating cost-effective energy saving opportunities. It provides an assessment of the overall energy consumption of a site, benchmarks the energy consumption as reasonable or excessive and allows for energy measures to be tracked and evaluated.
This audit provides a cursory guide to potential savings and costs at an accuracy of ±40%.
Level 2 Audit
Provides a more detailed assessment of your pattern of energy usage and a more comprehensive energy saving and costing analysis. It includes a greater assessment and detailed descriptions of relevant energy efficient technology. It is intended for sites that have some knowledge of energy efficiency and energy management and require a detailed assessment of opportunities to reduce their energy consumption. It identifies the sources of energy for a site, the amount of energy supplied, and what the energy is used for, via tracking and monitoring. It also identifies areas where savings may be made, recommends measures to be taken, and provides a statement of costs and potential savings.
This audit provides a preliminary assessment of costs and savings at an accuracy of ±20%.
Level 3 Audit
Provides a comprehensive analysis of energy usage, savings and costs. It incorporates both tracking and monitoring, and may cover the whole site or focus on an individual operational area. The results identified within the report require an appropriate level of accuracy and economic analysis to justify capital investment by stakeholders.
This audit provides a firm estimate of saving and costs at an accuracy of ±10%.
An EEA provides organisations with three direct benefits:
Financial gains: accrued from low, medium or high cost investment measures. These can be realised in several ways and are not only dependent on investment. These include reduced expenditure on energy, reduced maintenance costs, savings in other costs, improved employee well-being and more.
Operational Benefits: in addition to direct operational cost, further benefits can be achieved from the information being made available to upper management. This is beneficial in asset planning and decision making, all of which can lead to improved workplace efficiency. These can include reduced maintenance or increased productivity, long term options involving major refurbishment or influencing future policy on design and operation and planning for a more effective approach to ongoing energy management.
Environmental Benefits: these arise from using energy more efficiently, therefore reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reduction of environmental impacts related to energy and a reduction of regional and national energy demand and conservation of natural resources.
