Understanding Energy Use
Verification, Monitoring, and Reporting
Energy today has become a key factor in deciding the product cost at the micro level as well as in dictating the inflation. Energy cost is a significant factor in economic activity as par with factors of production like capital, land, and labour. The imperatives of an energy shortage situation call for energy conservation measure, which essentially means using less energy for the same level of activity.
Energy Audit attempts to balance the total energy inputs with its use and serves to identify all the energy streams in the systems and quantifies energy usages according to its discrete function. Energy Audit helps in energy cost optimization, pollution control, safety aspects and suggests the methods to improve the operating & maintenance practices of the system
Preparation: Before the auditor’s visit, gather information of your client : List of load connected, Quantity of each type of load area wise, year of construction, energy bills, type of HVAC system with details, etc
Audit: First of all, the information that you have gathered about your home is analysed. After this, when conducting afull audit, the auditor checks. The quality of the insulation of the outside walls. The proper functioning of the heating installation, the hot water system, and the ventilation system. The proper use of your various pieces of equipment.
Report: All the data collected during the audit are encoded into a specialized software program. This application is usedto attribute a label from A to E to all the elements analysed. The auditor then makes recommendations and draws up aprojection of the way your home would be if you were to follow these recommendations. In the last stage, the auditor draws up a final report and adds any observations he may have.
Power Quality determines the fitness of electrical power to consumer devices.This will further help you address reliability and stability concerns before they actually impact onyour facilities performance and more important on the bottom line of the organization.Without proper power, an electrical device may fail, malfunction or not operate at all.
Higher energy consumption & High Current Load or fluctuation.
Production Quality & Quantity losses.
Financial Losses due to the stoppage.
Increase in Reactive power consumption.
The reduced life cycle of Equipment/damage.
Increased Maintenance and Service cost.
Degradation of electrical system
And many more issues
Harmonics (Vthd & Ithd)
Earth-pit resistance Test (at mains transformer), Every Control Panel and Distribution bound level.
Reactive Power Analysis
Line Disturbances (Transient, Sags, Swells at main Transformer)
Captive Power Assessment
Inferences & Recommendation
You may not be aware of issues facing in your “ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS”due to poor power quality. Diagnosis of power quality is important to
Protect electrical equipment safety.
Trace the area which is creating problems.
To avoid any electrical system hazards.
Improve Power Factor & system efficiency.
Avoid Break-downs & Voltage/frequency fluctuations Interruptions
Save on-going excess Energy consumption
Remove Harmonics, Surges & Transients from electrical Network.
Avoid Transformer overheat, Capacitor burst, Trip Etc
Savings in Energy Bills due to reduced Losses & KVA demands
Accurate Measurements by Installed Meter.
Better Production Rate and Quality due to reduced interruption.
The enhanced Life cycle of Electrical distribution system network & component.
Maximize Plant distribution Capacity
The building energy audit seeks to analyse the energy consumption produced by a building with the aim of proposing measures to reduce them, as well as the related emissions and the economic cost of the energy used.
Green building and sustainable building both refer to the design and construction of buildings that have a minimal impact on the environment and using processes that are environmentally responsible, resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle from site visit to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation,and deconstruction. A green building: Makes efficient use of land, materials, energy,and water. Generates minimal or no waste. Provides a healthy indoor environment for its occupants.
Assess current energy performance
Prepare for a Green Building Audit
Commit to energy savings
Conduct an audit
Quantify savings Potential
Create an action plan & implement improvements
Sustain & Continuously monitoring improvements
Analyse the constructive and use characteristics of the building, in order to determine the real demand.
Determine the performance of the HVAC systems installed, in order to estimate the consumption which satisfy the real demand of the building
Evaluate the possibility of reducing the real demand of the building.
Evaluate possible measures to reduce the consumption of the system.
Evaluate and propose a list of measures prioritized according to the previous analysis, calculating the joint effect and its profitability, both in terms of reduction of the energy (primary and final) consumption and in economic terms.
It will be necessary to use a proper combination of the data obtained in site with building performance models.
Have enough precision to reproduce the monthly consumption.
Have enough precision to evaluate the interest of the saving measures proposed.
Be able to evaluate the influence of the variables not measured in the consumption.
Energy efficiency assessment will provide insight on financial benefits, reducing demand and overhead costs. During our assessment, our team will create specific recommendations on upgrades you can make to improve your building's systems.Most often these recommended energy updates include:
Automation and energy management systems
High-efficiency water heating systems
Heating, cooling, and ventilation (HVAC) upgrades
LED and high-efficiency indoor and outdoor lighting.
R enewable energy systems including commercial solar plant.
Each efficiency project begins with our certified energy auditorswho will evaluate your facility, collect consumption data and develop a custom plan that will maximize your savings.
Facility assessment and data collection
Our project engineers will redesign your lighting system to maximize the energy savings and incentives. We will also work for other building systems including HVAC.
Once the project is underway, leading the design, installation and service portions of the project. Upon completion of the project, we will continue to verify your savings. Our team of electricians can cover any maintenance, so you can focus onrunning your business.
