Energy Audits

An Energy Audit will provide you with an impartial, expert assessment of how energy is used at your premises and recommendations on how to reduce consumption and spend.

Typical areas an audit or health check will assess include:

Recommendations will be prioritised by payback period – the time it takes to recoup the cost of implementing an initiative through the money saved on your energy bills.

What does the Energy Audit involve?

The Energy Audit will be carried out by a qualified Assessor. They will undertake a thorough survey of the property using measurements and photographs and assessing lighting, heating and insulation systems, the building construction type and its usage, to create your Audit Report.

A visit typically takes around 2 hours (occasionally longer for larger or more complex buildings), though the Energy Assessor will not need to be accompanied at all times.

Before the Energy Audit you will be asked to provide the Energy Assessor with some initial information to help them plan their visit. If available, floor-plans for the building are also useful. The audit is a visual inspection and so not invasive of the structure of the building.

How do I book an Energy Audit?

Eligible small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) can apply for an Energy Audit through our Utilise Plus programme, fully-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

If you think your organisation is eligible and you’re interested in an Audit, please register your interest.

If your organisation is not eligible for a fully-funded Audit, please get in touch and we can quote for one instead.
