With the cost of energy increasing, it is important to ensure that you maximize the energy efficiency of your business and equipment.  The easiest way to find out if there are ways to improve your energy efficiency is by getting Elexacom to undertake a comprehensive Energy Efficiency Audit, our report will provide a complete power consumption report for your premise.energy efficiency elexacom

As part of our procedure we will install a high accuracy energy efficiency logger on to your installation for a period of time.  Logging your power over a period of time provides valuable information about power consumption, voltage, power factor, harmonics, peak usage, off peak usage, distribution of power etc.

The data from the energy efficiency logger is combined with information collected from the installation such as connected equipment, number of power points, types of lighting, air-conditioning etc.

We will then combine all of the information collected and provide you with a report on our findings including all of the raw data collected from the energy efficiency logger.  As part of our report we can also provide recommendations and fully costed quotes on the scope of works required to improve the energy efficiency of your premises.

Energy Efficiency through lighting

When it comes to improving energy efficiency the first area to look at is lighting.  Changing existing lighting to more efficient lighting types can normally be done quickly and cost effectively.energy efficiency

Lighting can account for up to 40% of energy costs in commercial buildings and up to 7% of industrial energy use. There are many low-cost and no-cost measures that can be implemented to reduce these costs without adversely affecting working conditions.

Lighting energy savings of 75–90% can be achieved using daylighting and task lighting strategies and using the most efficient equipment. It is also a very visible way to demonstrate to staff that energy efficiency is a business priority and to encourage them to take an active role in reducing energy costs.
