An energy audit identifies potential causes of energy or resource waste and serves as the first step in making a facility more energy efficient. Energy Auditing for Industrial Facilities is an introduction to the planning, conducting, documenting, and evaluating of an energy audit.
Specific types of measurements and how to interpret them are given for each system in a facility. The textbook also covers prioritizing, implementing, and verifying energy-efficiency projects as well as giving suggestions for sustaining long-term results. After studying this material, technicians familiar with building systems and the use of test instruments will be able to participate in an energy audit. This textbook is also key to educating managers on the benefits of an energy audit and the processes involved.
