What is an Energy Audit?
An energy audit is an in-depth report which demonstrates energy saving areas within the property. The main aim of an energy audit is to underline the potential behavioural changes that will reduce a properties energy consumption. From these reports, energy savings can then be calculated alongside budgetary costings and payback period.
Types of Energy Audit
Compliance365 offer a variety of energy audit reports. The most basic report that we offer is an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Review, which determines how you can improve the energy rating for your individual properties. Within this report, we primarily focus on building infrastructure to identify upgrades on areas such as lighting systems, heating systems and external building fabric.
Our most in-depth report is the Energy Plus Audit, which is produced around five individual modules of energy and environmental efficiency. The five modules are:
- Building infrastructure and property energy consumers
- Water reduction
- Behavioural training
- Thermal Imaging
Within the audit, we can include as many of the modules as you desire.
Each report that we offer includes the savings associated with each upgrade both financial and consumption, along with indicative industry costs for installation and payback periods. All our prices include a full site survey, a 3D model of the building and the completed report of your choice.
Energy Audit Process
Our Energy Assessors attend site and undertake a detailed building inspection reviewing the existing infrastructure of the property, including construction and build date, the lighting, window glazing and HVAC details. From this, our modelling team produce a 3D model of the building, reviewing the operation of the site using the building modelling information (BIM) software design builder. The software calculates a simulated consumption which is calibrated against the actual kWh usage, allowing us to accurately simulate the property’s energy baseline.
It also allows for a ‘what if’ scenario analysis to be carried out, which identifies potential behavioural changes that could yield reductions in energy consumption, spend and carbon emissions.
