Identifying and implementing opportunities for reducing energy use in buildings can save money while demonstrating a commitment to environmental performance and meeting high performing building initiatives.
The preliminary audit is the simplest and fastest type of audit. It involve minimal interviews with site operating personnel, a brief review of facility utility bills and other operating data, and an inspection of the facility to identify areas of energy waste or inefficiency.
Typically, only major problem areas and simple “low hanging fruit” corrections will be uncovered during this type of audit. Corrective measures are briefly described, and quick estimates of implementation cost, potential operating cost savings, and simple payback periods are provided.
