What is energy efficiency?

Energy efficiency – also called efficient energy use - is the strategy of reducing the amount of energy required to provide products and services.  There are many motivations to improve energy efficiency. Reducing energy use reduces energy costs and may result in a financial cost saving to the industries or other services provider which in its turn leads to lower production cost and, thus, higher profitability of a company.

Implementing energy efficiency is not always related to costly investment. Generally, there are many no-cost and low-cost saving options found before investing in expensive energy-efficient technology.  

Energy efficiency is also seen as a solution to the problem of reducing emissions and environmental impact of industrial activities. According to the International Energy Agency, improved energy efficiency in buildings, industrial processes and transportation could reduce the world's energy needs in 2050 by one third, and help control global emissions of greenhouse gases.

More practical information about how to implement energy efficiency you can find in our learning section.

What is Energy Audit?

An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows in an industry, building, process or system aiming at the reduction of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output.

Energy audit involves a systematic study undertaken on major energy consuming sections and equipments to identify the flow of energy and energy saving opportunities. Energy audit identifies opportunities for financial savings by elimination of wasteful use of electricity, coal and fuel oil, without affecting the process or quality of product. A well-conducted energy audit would reveal the areas of wastage of energy and it would be possible to suggest saving of energy.
