Before deciding on a consultant to proceed with an audit, ask these 2 essential questions : 1. Will the audit be completed as per the applicable Australian Standard (AS3598:2000) ? 2. Is the consultant appropriately qualified ? (simply being an electrician does not necessarily ensure the skills required) Energy is an essential business input and often constitutes a significant and growing line item of company operating expenses. The cost of energy is projected to continue to rise due to many factors, a number of which are beyond the control of most businesses. These factors will continue to place further upward pressure on energy prices and subsequently improve returns on energy efficiency investments. One of the essential first steps in an energy efficiency project is to establish an energy usage baseline through the completion of an Energy Audit. During an energy audit a suitably qualified professional will assess how much energy a building or portfolio is using and where it is being used. An energy audit is the important starting point for any energy efficiency program as it not only establishes the baseline energy consumption but identifies areas where it can be reduced. There are three levels of energy audits, all of which need to be performed to the specifications of AS/NZS 3598:2000 Energy Audits.
