TREES has the expertise and the experience to undertake Energy Audits to various levels of engineering accuracy, based on international energy audit standards. In addition, TREES can provide Energy Management Consulting services to produce a Detailed Specification for the implementation of a multi technology Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy project.
If the client wishes to proceed with the project, TREES can also provide the services of an experienced Project Manager to implement the project on behalf of the client, taking the role of “Owner’s Engineer” right through to project commissioning and handover.
Improving your business’ energy efficiency and reducing your carbon footprint begins with an energy audit. We at TREES have the expertise to perform energy audits according to international energy audit standards.
We then use the findings from the audit to recommend solutions that will help you achieve your energy efficiency objectives – whether they involve targeted processes or equipment, or a holistic program that will encompass your entire operations and facility.
Our energy management services include all aspects of the project as follows:
Energy audits have two basic objectives: (1) Improve productivity areas and (2) Identify cost and energy saving opportunities. To achieve these, audit processes look into the following:
An energy audit may be a single purpose audit intended to analyze one or more types of projects, or a comprehensive audit that encompasses a facility’s entire energy system. Generally, the energy audit process involves the following stages:
1. Benchmarking – benchmarks are created by analyzing historical energy use and costs, and comparing these against other similar buildings or facilities.
2. Walkthrough survey – this involves assessing the facility’s energy efficiency by studying installed equipment, processes and energy use, and verifying the data collected and analyzed during the benchmarking phase. At this stage, potential ECMs (energy conservation measures) and ECOs (energy conservation opportunities) are identified, as well as areas that may require further audits.
3. General audit – this is a more intensive and thorough analysis of a facility’s energy use, through actual measurements using sophisticated tools and software, as well as closer inspections and reviews of installed equipment. The ECMs and ECOs identified from previous surveys will also be analyzed at this stage.
4. Investment-grade audit – this is a thorough analysis that involves identifying potential investments on energy-saving improvements and the financial costs and returns on these investments.
Having identified ECMs and ECOs in your facility, the next steps are to develop and implement an energy savings strategy.
TREES offers comprehensive energy audit and management services. Our detailed specification will include multi-technology solutions to achieve your energy-saving targets, based on findings from our audits.
Our energy management consultancy services cover the construction and implementation of the identified technologies, including trainings and regular performance review and analysis.
A project manager will be designated as your owner’s engineer to implement the project on your behalf, and, upon agreement with you, will oversee the project from the planning stage to the realization of your energy and cost-saving goals.
