Energy Audit and Energy Consulting.
An Energy Audit is the starting point for an Energy Management Strategy. Get clear answers on where, when and how energy resources are used. You may not even realise you are spending it. Energy Audit are carried out by our experienced Energy Managers, who have a wealth of experience and have helped some of the biggest companies in Slovenia to save money. They have experience with companies operating in a wide range of industries.
The EcoFund provides subsidies to small and medium-sized enterprises in the form of grants covering up to 50% of the eligible costs of an energy audit, excluding VAT.
The Energy Audit is carried out in four key steps.
Data collection. We collect data on the energy consumption of the building, equipment, machinery and other important energy consumers. This is important for analysing the whole system, understanding the organisation’s performance and energy consumption needs.
Visiting the organisation. It is necessary to collect any additional information needed to study energy consumption patterns (e. g. make and size of equipment model, operating hours, etc. ).
Analysis of information. The available data is analysed to determine energy consumption and efficiency based on the company’s activities and operations. We identify where energy consumption is too high to take appropriate measures to reduce consumption, costs and increase efficiency.
Energy Saving Plan. The preparation of an energy saving plan is based on the information gathered. The Energy audit will propose measures to improve energy efficiency and assess opportunities to reduce energy and water consumption.
An Energy Audit identifies energy efficiency problems and energy saving opportunities in the company. With a detailed report, a company can see what is using more energy than it should. Find out where you can make improvements that will help you save on energy costs and fight climate change.
Benefits of Energy Audit.
- LOWER ENERGY COSTS
- LOWER CO2 EMISSIONS
- IDENTIFY MALFUNCTIONING EQUIPMENT
- INCREASED EMPLOYEE SAFETY
- CUSTOMISED REPORTS AND ANALYSIS
- CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
- MORE ADDED VALUE
- LONGER EQUIPMENT LIFETIME
What you get from an Energy Audit.
The Energy Audit will suggest organisational measures to reduce costs and energy consumption and provide a summary for business decision-making. The main findings of the Energy Audit will be summarised, together with a list of proposed actions, with an estimate of the investment needed and the annual savings. The analyses and findings will be presented in writing, in a way you can understand. We also present it to the company‘s management.
The implementation of the Energy Audit is based on the UNI EN 16247 standard, which specifies the implementation of energy audits, and the SIST ISO 50002: 2018 standard, which specifies the implementation of energy audits, the relationship between the energy audit and the energy management system according to ISO 50001.
A clear action plan.
The company will receive a clear action plan and a clear report on the implementation of the Energy Audit. Focus on presenting feasible energy optimisation measures.
- Proposal for organisational measures (not involving significant investment and maintenance measures with minor investments)
- Proposal for investment measures (building level, heating system, electricity use, cooling and ventilation)
- Project timetable
- Expected costs of implementing the measures
- Expected annual savings
The Benefits of an Energy Audit.
The aim of the Energy Audit is to raise awareness and information among employees and company management, and in particular to make proposals for action in the field of energy efficiency. Based on the proposed organisational and investment measures for energy efficiency and on energy, economic and ecological criteria, the management decides on the implementation of individual measures and investments according to certain priorities.
A company can quickly improve its energy efficiency when it starts to do so systematically. It does this by including everything that has any impact on energy use. On average, our customers achieve savings of 7% in the first year after implementation!
