China Energy Audit

A Kelcroft energy audit begins with the collection and analysis of all information that impacts the energy consumption of the building.  

We analyze the data and performance of your existing systems, the installation, the existing management techniques and utility bills.

We compare your facilities energy performance with published  standards for your premises and activities of a similar nature and provide proposals.

Reporting

A Kelcroft energy audit report contains our findings, and is sub-divided into three energy management sections, namely:

 

Within these three sections, we explain energy saving options and opportunities for your managers to implement, as follows:


Housekeeping

Housekeeping measures are improvements involving virtually no cost, and involve relatively simple steps to start achieving energy savings. For example training courses to increase energy consumption awareness amongst your staff, or as part of a staff induction programme.

Operation measures

These improvements necessitate some change within your existing regime or maintenance strategy.

For example lighting modifications, improved the switching arrangement or implementing a new lamp replacement strategy to benefit from the efficacy of the latest technology.

In the majority of cases, the working environment for your customers and employees is improved. 

Capital works

Capital works are major improvements to your premises that will require significant expenditure.

Examining your installation, analyzing your operating and maintenance costs, and evaluating possible options for energy conservation. Viable proposals that will benefit you financially are offered for appraisal. For example, switching to water cooled air conditioning (cooling towers) under the pilot programme.

The energy analysis would comprise a practical and economic evaluation of energy saving options. This evaluation would include an investigation of all the various elements that contribute to your owning and operating costs.

Typically these would comprise:

  • Initial expenditure - capital required to purchase the plant or equipment
  • Cost in use - the calculated running costs for the installation based on the data retrieved during the survey
  • Investment analysis - payback and net present value calculations, which are tools to establish if a proposal would recoup your investment during a specific period).
Payback hurdles vary by company and sector. For example, a commercial or industrial customer generally might seek a five-year payback, while an energy service company or public utility may accept a ten year payback horizon.

An economic analysis examines alternatives, gauging the overall viability of a particular energy-saving strategy.
