Energy Audits as foundation to achieve most suited strategy for Buildings
Energy Audit: Point of departure for Sustainable Buildings
Why are we even saying this? It is because the country we live in consumes 113.2 billion kWh of electricity with a per capita of 11,754 kWh, more than twice the per capita consumption of Europe.
The time has come for all types of entities & businesses to make sure that they create minimal negative impact on the global or local environment, community, society, or economy—a business that strives to meet the triple bottom line PLANET, PEOPLE & PROFIT. Often, sustainable businesses have progressive environmental and human rights policies.
Almost 45% of the energy is consumed by the buildings and we estimate that we will be able to save around 25% of it by top-notch engineering, technology & lastly common sense. Energy is a KPI for infrastructure, operation & delivery of products & services.
What & Why are we talking about?
Similar to the annual financial audit, exercising a periodic energy audit determines the amount of energy flowing into the facility & where it is being consumed. With soaring energy costs & unstoppable destruction to the environment, energy audits identify losses, inefficiencies, conditions that affect performance along with occupant comfort & indoor environment quality.
Analyzing building performance, systems and equipment in association to their behavior with regards to the weather conditions & occupancy, we design energy conservation measures which are bespoke to every building identifying the savings potential, optimizing operation philosophy & maintenance strategy without compromising on the purpose & requirements of the end-user.
How does it help?
Failing to Plan: Planning to Fail. Power saved is power generated. In the context, optimizing building energy performance, implementing of proposed solutions, saves power viz increased profits along with the below.
- Reduced Energy Costs with discovery of undesired energy losses
- Reduced maintenance cost with equipment usage as per design life
- Increased asset value
- Lesser impact of increasing energy costs
- Help combat climate change with lesser emissions & reduced carbon foot print
- Adds up to your CSR, brand recognition, ‘green & sustainable’ image in market
Eventually, leading to increased health, productivity & morale from the improved indoor environment quality from our comprehensive services tailor-made solutions by our certified energy professionals.
