Energy Audit 能源審核

Energy audits examine the energy footprint of your operations, the goal to lower your operating cost without sacrificing occupational comfort, or in the case of manufacturing without production impacts.

Projects undertaken range from the smallest energy assessments to major energy audit projects.

Surveys indicate that seventy five percent (75%) of buildings are operating incorrectly, have inappropriate operating and maintenance contracts or are waste money through inefficient energy usage. Energy is often the greatest expense, accounting for 1/3rd of property developers operating expenses.

Also we have to consider that energy costs are rising every year, tariff increases threatened, and oil prices are soaring, all effecting your bottom line - Kelcroft helps organisations reduce your energy bills, improving profitability.

Energy Audit

Kelcroft energy audits begin with the collection and analysis of all information that may affect your buildings energy consumption.  Analyzing the performance of your existing systems and installation, existing management techniques and utility bills.

An energy audit report summarizing our findings is sub-divided into three energy management sections, namely:

Within these three sectors, we explain energy saving options and opportunities for your managers to review and implement.


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, as part of a staff induction.

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 would be 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).

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 seeks a two- to five-year payback, while an energy service company or public utility may accept a 5- to 10-year payback horizon.

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