Energy will make up a large proportion of your utility bills. By conducting an energy audit, you’ll get a better understanding of your energy usage and your organisation’s cost saving opportunities.

An energy audit, or survey, is a systematic review of how energy is used within an organisation. It includes a physical inspection of buildings and equipment, ranging from a simple visual inspection to a fully instrumented study, and a report on recommended energy and cost saving opportunities.

To conduct an energy audit in your organisation you should review your organisation’s current energy usage and identify how much energy you use, and when and where you use it. Reviewing bills and even talking to your colleagues in your various departments can help you build a full picture of energy use. Once you have a good understanding of your current energy usage, you can start to identify energy saving opportunities and define practical ‘next steps’.
