Energy Audits.

Energy audits are the essential first step for organisations to identify key areas for improvement. An Energy Audit entails a comprehensive analysis of a facility’s energy consumption, designed to identify areas for improvement and unlock cost savings otherwise unlikely to be realised.

What is an Energy Audit?

At its core, an Energy Audit involves a systematic evaluation of energy use, conducted by qualified audit professionals to an Australian standard. 

An Energy Audit can clarify your company’s energy consumption and identify areas for potential savings, as well as lead to reduced energy use, improved productivity and opportunities to innovate.

Typical Energy Audits include comprehensive analysis and reporting of a site’s energy usage across three categories aligned to AS NZS 3598.1 & AS NZS 3598.2, including: 

  • Detailed Tariff Analysis 
  • Time of Use (ToU) Analysis 
  • Energy Usage Breakdowns (EUBs) of all main energy-using equipment 
  • Energy Efficiency Opportunities, categorised by a payback period of less than 2 years or greater than 2 years
  • Detailed Asset Registry

Energy Assessments.

Energy Assessments are similar to Energy Audits, but are more high-level and primarily focused on finding the ‘low-hanging fruit’ relating to energy efficiency opportunities within a facility.

The Energy Assessment is a process where ‘quick wins’ are identified to reduce your energy consumption based on the findings of a site visit. The Return on Investment (ROI) of each Energy Upgrade is estimated based on high-level values and industry averages. 

Ecovantage’s specialists can help with both Energy Assessments and Energy Audits, and support you in determining which is the best option for your business.

The advantages of Energy Audits extend beyond immediate cost savings. They provide valuable data that supports:

Informed Decision-making
Audits equip organisations with insights to make informed investment decisions about energy upgrades and process modifications.

Continuous Improvement
Regular audits create a tangible measurement of site progress while informing ongoing efforts.
