Our experts in energy efficiency management carry out in-depth analysis of all energy-consuming and transforming systems and processes, whether these are part of an industrial process energy audit or facility energy audit.
Industrial energy audits begin by looking at energy-generation systems (boiler rooms, cooling systems, co-generators, biomass facilities, generation systems powered by renewable energy, etc.); then the audit assesses energy efficiency in distribution systems (pumping systems, compressed-air rings, hydraulic or electric drive systems, etc.) and finally looks at the end equipment (air-handling units, fan-coil units, cold stores, lighting systems, etc.).
Our energy-efficiency analysis of a client’s various technologies and processes focus on determining the profitability of any energy-saving measures (ESM) that can be realised with energy saving solutions. This requires the potential savings of every possible ESM to be calculated against the current outlay, plus the level of investment required to implement the energy efficiency project.
Within the field of strategic energy efficiency management and consulting, Applus+ also leads in monitoring and developing national energy-efficiency policies in different countries around the world. Such projects include developing an energy-certification system to classify a country’s buildings according to their relative energy efficiency and using geo-referencing to monitor energy intensity in a particular zone in order to track energy consumption.
