Energy audits and their associated fundamental energy-related understanding have become essential subjects to combat climate change, achieve net-zero by 2050, and improve industrial and commercial bottom-line savings. The energy auditor uses the systems approach to assess significant energy uses in companies. International best practices are used to balance the effort of auditing energy systems and the value-added to the company with due regard to cost, savings, and risks. Energy audit results should be calculated, packaged, and presented in such a way as to convert potential into realised savings.

This ETC training course covers industrial and commercial facilities, focusing on energy systems, including electric motors, lights, heating, ventilation, air conditioning, fans, pumps, boilers, and compressors. The delegates will evaluate and analyse energy use in a facility and identify energy efficiency measures to make recommendations to minimise energy costs.

The energy auditor will understand the energy-related science and systematically assess energy systems in a facility. The delegates will identify, quantify, and recommend energy-saving opportunities where consumption can be reduced or optimised. Whether building new knowledge or validating experience, energy audit workshop participants will learn theoretical concepts based on many years of international practical experience.

By the end of this training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Conduct energy audits with confidence in industrial and commercial facilities
  • Optimise the use of energy in buildings, plants, and systems
  • Package and recommend financially feasible energy savings opportunities for implementation
  • Understand electrical-, thermal-, and mechanical –energy systems
  • Develop baseline adjustment models according to ISO50001 and international Measurement & Verification guidelines

This training course will use various proven learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The training course will follow a participative workshop format. It will be focused on developing practical skills that delegates can apply in real-life business situations on return to their organisation.

Upon completion of this course, the organisational impact would be: 

  • Improved technical capacity of the workforce on energy systems and its associated optimisation
  • Improved financial competitiveness and productivity
  • Improved operational management
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions and environmental impact
  • Improved marketing position due to net-zero by 2050 target alignment

On the successful completion of this training course, the delegate will be able to:

  • Appreciate the effects of climate change and the positive solution to a successful outcome
  • Understand the basics of energy, efficiency, conversion, and balance
  • Understand energy systems that may encounter at a facility and their associated optimisation
  • Assess and investigate a facility’s energy systems operations with confidence 
  • Package and recommend identified potential energy savings opportunities
  • Communicate an identified energy management project in the language of financial decision-makers

Professionals that are involved in undertaking and assessing energy auditing projects. The delegates that influence the operation of significant energy-consuming equipment, utility management, or energy optimisation implementation projects.
