Dependant on your location and utility service provider! This includes a more detailed building surveyand whole building utility consumption analysis.

Commercial Energy Audits (ASHRAE)

Association for Energy Affordability. It will also list any potential capital-intensive improvements that require more thorough data collection and engineering analysis Level III Auditand a preliminary judgment of potential costs and savings associated with those improvements.

The Level I audit is intended to help the building owner understand where the building performs procfdures to its peers; establish a baseline for measuring improvements; decide whether further evaluation is warranted; and if so, where and how to focus that effort. It provides detailed project cost and savings calculations with a high level of confidence sufficient for major capital investment decisions.

Energy consumption is broken out by end use such that building owners and operators can ashre understand which areas of operation may present the greatest opportunities.


ASHRAE Building Energy Quotient (bEQ)

The audit results in a brief summary report that will detail the findings. Click here for instructions on how to enable JavaScript in your browser. Notify me of new posts by email. This Guilding Results in: Develop the Energy Utilization Index EUI and compare with similar buildings to determine if further engineering study and analysis are likely to produce significant energy savings.

The goal of the new standard is to define audit approaches, information that should be in an audit, and way that information should communicate to the facility manager. Also, provide a listing of potential capital improvement that merit further consideration based on costs and potential savings.

All key building representatives owners, managers, operators and occupants are interviewed to gain a thorough understanding of the operational characteristics of the building, to explore all potential problem areas, and to clarify financial and non-financial buildinb of the assessment.

Preliminary Energy Use Analysis: The site assessment may commercia a variety of diagnostic testing. One of our representatives will contact you to discuss. The Level III audit is typically reserved for complex commercial and industrial buildings with very specific and accurate economic payback analysis requirements.

In the interest of considering the ahrae distance between comparable standards and methods for energy performance i. The Level III energy audit is a highly instrumented and long term study. Open for review and comment until Jan.

Energy Survey and Engineering Analysis: Open for public comment until Jan. Analyze two to three years of utility data electric, gas, water. The Level III audit involves collecting long term trend data using data logging devices and information fed from the buildings energy management or building management systems. Utility rates are analyzed to determine if there are rate change opportunities or if specific utility rate DSM programs are available to the building.


In addition to the energy model, the energy engineer will also generate an audit report that thoroughly documents building conditions, operational characteristics, and proposed energy savings measures.

The audits can be performed in three levels of complexity and detail: It may also provide a list of more capital intensive improvements that merit further consideration, and an initial judgment of potential costs and savings.

Depending on the types of systems the building has and the reported problems or issues the building may be experiencing, diagnostics may include any of the following: These procedures for conducting audits are accepted as the industry gold standard and proven to be effective for any size project. This standard is to establish minimum performance levels for energy audits and bring some order to the chaos.
