As per the Energy Conservation Act, 2001, Energy Audit is defined as “the verification, monitoring and analysis of use of energy including submission of technical report containing recommendations for improving energy efficiency with cost benefit analysis and an action plan to reduce energy consumption”. Implementation of recommended measures can help consumes to achieve significant reduction in their energy consumption levels. 4C Consulting Provides the Energy audit.
Energy audit involves a systematic study undertaken on major energy consuming sections and equipment’s including construction of heat and mass balance with a view to identify the flow of energy, utilization efficiency of energy in each of the steps and pin-point wasteful energy used. A well-conducted energy audit would reveal the areas of wastage of energy and it would be possible to suggest saving of energy.
The Energy Conservation Act requires the energy audit report to contain recommendations for improving energy efficiency with cost benefit analysis and an action plan to reduce energy consumption. The conduct of energy audit and implementation of its recommendations on cost-benefit basis through accredited energy auditors is expected to help the designated energy consumers to achieve significant reduction in their energy consumption levels.
Energy can be defined as the capacity to do work. Since India is a developing country we need more energy for continuous progress. While efforts are being made to improve availability of various energy sources, there is still a continuing gap between demand and supply of energy. Conservation and efficient utilization of energy resources play a vital role in narrowing the gap between demand and supply of energy. Improving energy efficiency is probably the most economical way of narrowing the gap.
Considering the vast potential of energy savings and benefits of energy efficiency, the Government of India has enacted the Energy Conservation Act, 2001 (52 of 2001). The Act provides for the legal framework, institutional arrangement and a regulatory mechanism at the Central and State level to embark upon energy efficiency drive in the country.
