Getting an Energy Audit is a great first step towards reducing energy costs and cutting your organisations carbon footprint.
CarbonetiX can provide you with a comprehensive AS/NZS 3598:2000 compliant Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 energy audit.
With experience in a range of different facilities and environments, our experienced assessors will identify a wide range of electricity and gas reduction opportunities. All of these opportunities are outline them in a clear, detailed report.
As well as auditors, we are project managers, sustainability managers and planners. This means that once you have received our recommendations, we can provide the next level of support. We thrive on helping all types of organisations reduce energy costs, lower carbon emissions and become leaders in sustainability.
Different Audit Levels
A Level 1 Energy 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 efficiency 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 energy efficiency of the site to be determined.
A Level 2 Energy Audit meets the requirements of a Level 1 Audit and also 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, potential savings, and payback periods. A Level 2 Audit is an energy use survey, which is expected to provide a preliminary assessment of costs and savings.
A Level 3 Energy Audit covers the requirements of a Level 1 and Level 2 Audit and provides a detailed analysis of energy usage, the energy savings that can be made, and the cost of achieving those energy 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 employ a specialist to carry out specific parts of an audit or may need to install local metering and logging equipment to monitor energy use. The report from a Level 3 Audit often forms the justification for substantial investment by the owner or management.
A Walk-Through Energy Audit is a low level energy audit, which identifies energy reduction opportunities for a site with no quantification of potential savings or energy costs. A list of unquantified energy saving recommendations is then provided.
