An energy audit is conducted by an energy auditor and involves a detailed building inspection and analysis of how efficiently energy is being used. The aim is to identify all opportunities to reduce the amount of energy consumed without negatively affecting occupant comfort & operations. The formal methodology behind an energy audit is described in the Australian Standard AS 3598.
This is a simplified energy audit conducted by an assessor. It is most commonly offered to householders & small businesses. It involves a simple walk though inspection, that provides usually generic information and sometimes specific information about the energy efficiency of existing appliances and lighting. Energy saving tips are provided but tend to be based upon typical applications. If energy saving products are offered for purchase then the assessment becomes the justification for a biased marketing pitch.
