  • Plant-wide audit is for when you need help deciding where to begin to improve your business' energy efficiency and want guidance on what your best opportunities might be.

Let's take a look at both of them in more detail.

Plant-wide audit

We'll provide up to 100% of the funding towards an energy audit from an expert who'll complete a full walk-through of your facility. They'll deliver a high-level report of how much energy your different systems and equipment use and what the greatest areas for improvement are.

Other updates include:

  • A pre-engagement meeting to fully understand what your efficiency goals are and to understand any known issues.
  • An opportunity register featuring a list of all your potential efficiency measures. They'll be categorized and ranked by cost, effectiveness, and ease of implementation so you can select the ones you feel will benefit your business the most.

They'll deliver a detailed report with an assessment of your options, plus your estimated savings, and implementation costs. You can also get advice on how to build this information into a business case if required.

Additional support from an expert

The energy consultant that conducted your audit or study will provide you with a presentation to outline their findings. For transparency, and to help with any decision-making, you're welcome to invite additional team members and stakeholders to attend the presentation.
