An energy audit is the key to a systematic approach to decision-making in the area of energy management. The primary function of an energy audit is to identify all of the energy streams in a facility in order to balance total energy input with energy use. The four main objectives of an energy audit are as follows:

ASHRAE Energy Audit Overview

To establish an energy consumption baseline

To quantify energy usage according to its discrete functions

To benchmark with similar facilities under similar weather conditions

To identify existing energy cost reduction opportunities

Cogeneration Solutions

The concept of combined heat and power or cogeneration is simple: Why use 3 fuels when you can use one? Combined cooling, heat and power is the simultaneous production of electrical and thermal energy from a single fuel source.

Cogeneration is not an energy source itself, but rather more of an energy multiplier, squeezing more usable energy out of each unit of fuel most everywhere it is applied.

  • Bi-product of this generation is heating (hot water and space heat) and cooling (AC and refrigeration).
  • Provides a triple benefit to a client.
  • Provides both energy reduction and production.
  • Can easily be integrated with solar and other technologies as well as provide
    backup generation.
