Utility Performance Audit is a study evaluating the performance of various major energy equipments to identify the various parameters such as Specific energy consumption per equipment, Operating efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Energy Intensity, etc.
This can be done periodically to take necessary steps and actions to improve the performance of the utility. Based on the type of utility, the evaluation parameters vary. The utility performance can be performed for
After analysis, the major findings of the PEA would be
- HVAC systems
- Boilers & steam systems
- Heat exchangers
- Motors & drives
- Fans & Blowers
- Lighting systems
- Cogeneration systems
After the performance assessment potential Energy Conservation Opportunities will be found and recommended for implementation. The scope of opportunities will include Retrofitting of a equipment or Replacement of a part in the utility or change in the process parameters which affects the performance of the equipment.
