A Kelcroft energy audit finds the all ways to cut your energy costs to lower your building operating costs without sacrificing comfort.

Commissions are undertaken range from the small energy assessments to major projects, and successful energy consultants deliver cost cutting measures.

EMSD energy audit



More than seventy five percent (75%) of buildings are operating incorrectly, have inappropriate maintenance contracts or waste money through inefficient energy usage. And all too often the energy management systems installed to reduce operating costs, don't function as intended, and actually waste energy.

You wouldn't operate your business without the advice of an accountant to oversee your finances. Likewise an annual energy audit ensures that your energy cheque book is balanced too.

Energy costs tend to rise every year, tariff increases are threatened, increasing energy costs impact your bottom line, Kelcroft's cost cutting energy audit helps reduce your energy bills.

Why Should I Get an Energy Audit?

Most of us know about low flow shower heads, CFLs and unplugging our cell phone chargers when not in use, but there is so much more. Real savings need a professional REA Energy auditor.

An energy audit is also an appropriate tool if you are considering an energy efficiency or renewable energy project. The energy audit can help you decide whether or not the project is truly worthwhile.

Kelcroft's Approach

Kelcroft's approach is a total energy approach, it considers the total picture, not just the low hanging fruit providing an overall energy cost in use perspective.

The goal is management of resources without sacrificing end-user comfort. Our energy audits are conducted in accordance with international standards, and local EMSD guidelines as required.

One thing I have learned over the years is that energy auditing is not a desk job, it needs boots on ground, the site inspection of equipment actually operating is important, and very revealing.

If your energy auditor is not challenging and questioning your team, something is very wrong. We ask thousands of questions about the operation of your building, and you will not be surprized to learn we get different answers to the same question, confusion over operations is a leading cause of energy waste.

Success Stories

Finding and identifying energy waste, energy auditing reveals the underlying losses you can only imagine, don't be left in the dark.

energy conservation



It commences with the collection, and analysis of all information that may impact the building energy consumption. That data is analyzed, the performance of existing systems examined, and existing management techniques reviewed.

Then we compare your facilities energy performance with published standards (benchmarks) for your premises and activities of a similar nature and provide proposals that are financially viable to lower energy costs.

Energy Audit Report

The result of the energy audit is the audit report, Kelcroft's energy audit report includes our findings, and is sub-divided into three energy management sections, namely:

Within these three sectors, we explain energy saving options and opportunities for your review and implementation.

The energy audit is really only the first step, implementing the findings to lower costs is the ultimate goal.

Housekeeping

Housekeeping measures are low cost / no cost measures improvements involving relatively simple steps to start achieving energy savings. For example signage, and or training courses to increase energy consumption awareness amongst your staff.

Operation Measures

Operating and Maintenance measures are recommended improvements that necessitate some change within your existing regime or maintenance strategy.

For example lighting modifications, improved the switching arrangement or implementing a new lamp replacement strategy benefiting from the efficacy of the latest technology. Or perhaps re-commissioning to recover lost capacity.

In the majority of cases, the working environment for your customers is improved..



Capital Works

Capital works are major improvements to your premises or systems that will require significant expenditure.

Examining your installation, analyzing your operating and maintenance costs, and evaluating possible options for energy conservation.
