If you want to drill down and get to the finer details of your energy use, you need a full Energy Audit. A Utiltywise Business Energy Audit is a full review of your commercial premises and is conducted by our teams of qualified and accredited energy surveyors. It tells you what steps you need to take in order to make energy savings.
Get detailed information on your energy use
Our commercial energy surveyors will analyse and provide a full report on your current electricity, gas, and water consumption, as well as certifying your carbon dioxide emissions and annual energy spend.
The objective of the Commercial Energy Audit is to carry out a full energy audit assessment to highlight the physical and behavioural changes that will reduce energy consumption. The savings from each of the change measures is shown, along with the associated payback period. Our energy auditors are highly skilled and fully accredited energy professionals who can deliver cost-effective energy savings to your business.
Energy saving devices
Some of the energy savings suggested by your Energy Audit will be energy saving devices that can help you reduce your energy consumption. These energy saving devices could be timers, boiler controls, energy efficient lighting, or motion sensors, to name but a few. Each will be shown with the energy saving it would achieve, the carbon footprint reduction, and the expected payback period.
Prioritise energy saving projects
The Energy Service Audit is effectively a plan that will allow you to prioritise energy saving projects and help you find ways to implement them. Some of the projects will be harder to implement than others, and will involve changes in your staff behaviour.
Staff behaviour projects often result in considerable savings for very little investment in equipment. The University of Bradford reduced the energy consumption at the School of Health Studies by 33% through a behavioural change alone. The success of the behavioural modification was measured by Edd:e, our circuit-level energy monitoring system.
What does the Energy Audit analyse?
The Business Efficient Energy Audit covers:
- Building fabrication
- Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
- Water use
- All electrical systems, including machinery
- Any monitoring systems
- Full energy management audits certifying energy improvement for your business
The Energy Audit is conducted by an experienced Utilitywise Energy Manager, who can quickly identify improvements in equipment and behaviour change that can make real and quantifiable energy savings.
All of our Commercial Energy Audits are produced using the Utilitywise Audit Tool. We’re proud to say that this system, built by our energy experts, is now used as the auditing system by several energy suppliers.
