Energy Audits in Industries
The energy audits informs about the energetic consumption of a factory, using thermography and studies about machines and refrigeration equipment consumption could be saved a considerable quantity of energy.
There are several studies options for your industry.
- Option 1: Building study.
The energetic losses are localized in all the areas of the building where the insulation could be vulnerable, for example, thermal bridges (doors, windows, etc.). In this case, the losses are not quantified, but is recommended to take corrective actions for each anomaly. The evaluation technique is based in a thermography analysis of the surroundings of the building, is possible to include an analysis of the roof by drones equipped with an Ultra HD camera and a thermal camera.
- Option 2: Building and thermal equipment study.
Avoid the losses of energy through corrective measures about the insulation and optimization solutions is the goal. In this option, the energetic losses are quantified and possible corrective actions and inversions on energetic efficiency are evaluated. If customer request, a roof analysis can be made by drones.
“With oil prices rising, the savings will be even more and, consequently, lower the payback time.”
- Option 3: Total audit.
It is a global evaluation of efficient corrective actions in different fields, for example, lightning, energetic consumption, air conditioning, incorporation of more efficient equipment, etc. The audit could be partial or total. If is partial, the evaluation is of a particular process or sector. Roof analysis can be made. In all cases, the energetic losses are quantified.
In conclusion, the energy prices increments promote the energetic efficiency strategies to decrease the production costs, CO2 emissions and, consequently, the competitiveness of a business. Undoubtedly, an energy audit is a economic, sustainable and timeless concept.
Less consumption = Greater economic benefit
Less impact = Social and environmental benefit
