Savings even without investments
Intensifying the use of energy brings a direct economic benefit to companies and organisations and reduces environmental emissions caused by the activity.
The intensifying measures start from familiarity with the present situation and the identification of economically viable rationalisation targets. The first step towards more efficient energy consumption is an energy audit.
Energy audits for blocks of flats and terraced houses
The energy audit model for blocks of flats is intended for charting the energy saving opportunities of blocks of flats. The model can also be used for auditing terraced houses, for example. Viable energy saving measures are determined on the basis of energy usage information and the building’s energy consumption distribution.
Energy audit reports for blocks of flats deal with the present situation of energy and water consumption, describe the operation and use of HPAC systems, and provide well-grounded savings proposals, including saving effects and repayment periods.
The audit model now also includes the calculation of the CO2 effects of the energy savings measure for residential buildings.
Real estate audit
An energy audit for real estate is suitable for charting the energy savings potential of commercial and service buildings, which employ ordinary building services technology. It can also be used for auditing a large or technically complicated service building (such as a hospital, large shopping mall or public baths).
Unnecessary energy consumption is determined on the basis of a thorough examination of energy consumption data and the building, and economically viable energy savings measures are specified.
Energy audit reports for real estate deal with the present situation of energy and water consumption, describe the operation and use of HPAC systems, and provide well-grounded savings proposals, including saving effects and repayment periods.
- 5 000 cubic m – 10 000 cubic m: Real estate energy inspection or Real estate energy audit.
- Over 10,000 cubic m: Real estate energy audit.
Real estate energy inspection is an energy audit for small industrial or service buildings and small blocks of flats and terraced houses. The field work and output focus is on examining the savings potential of the building in question.
The real estate energy inspection discloses the peak consumption points and the most important energy savings opportunities with a reasonable workload.
Energy inspections are suitable for small buildings.
Energy auditing is intended to be a continuous process. At its most efficient, it is part of the company’s ordinary process of continuous improvement. The real estate follow-up audit model was developed for this purpose – for the ongoing maintenance and improvement of energy efficiency.
The model is suitable for cases where an energy audit based on the instructions of Motiva and Ministry of Trade and Industry has been previously performed on the building. The model may also be applied in follow-up audits of industrial buildings, but a project plan must then be appended to the support application.
