Energy Management 24 March 2013 Energy management assessment
Identify poor practice areas in energy management.
Identify gaps in information, including energy data, systems processes, and accountabilities.
Identify pre-existing energy-management structures that could be built upon.
Complete energy-management assessment checklist, including:
Energy policy and/or strategy in place?
Operational procedures in place – and adhered to?
Procurement policy for energy technology and energy-rated equipment?
Workforce engagement and communication?
Conduct energy survey
Construct road map for energy-management procedure Energy metering, monitoring and targeting
Analyse sub-metering and interval data status (drawing on initial energy-management assessment, as above).
Diagramatise data sources broken down by energy category.
Validation and cross-matching of all available energy-consumption data.
Monitoring and analysis of all interval and manual reading data from meters.
In-depth normalised data analysis (normalised for building type, occupancy levels, outside air temperature and energy demands specific to the business).
Benchmark energy-usage statistics against similar organisations and buildings.
Calculate KPIs (key performance indicators) and benchmarking.
Identify areas of energy wastage and potential energy-reduction actions.
Construct targets for energy reduction and roadmap actions, with all stakeholders’ engagement.
