Energy audits

If you want your business to make better use of energy, our energy audit is an invaluable tool. An energy audit evaluates how energy is being used, and identifies the energy and cost-saving opportunities. We'll even help fund your audit.

What’s on offer

We fund audits of the following technology systems:

Eligible sites can get EECA funding towards a base-level audit or an investment-level audit. You select the scope of audit suited to your needs.

Types of Energy Audits
Funding and Eligibility
Type 1
Basic Energy Audit
 
                                                                    
Type 1 audits provide a quantitative overview of energy performance and identify low cost opportunities with payback of up to 2 years.  Type 1 audits are suitable for smaller energy users of as a scoping energy audit of a large energy using site or process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you spend more than $150,000 per year on energy, you may be eligible for financial support.  Funding is available for up to 40% of thecost of an energy audit to a maximum of $20,000.

Type 2
Detailed Energy Audit
  Type 2 audits provide detailed analysis of energy performance to quantify the full range of opportunities for a site.  Type 2 audits involve a comprehensive review and analysis of equipment systems, and operational characteristics of the whole facility to enable quantified implementable energy savings recommendations.
Type 3
Precision Subsystem Audit
  Type 3 audits are detailed audits of specific subsystems, with additional data gathering and measurement to provide a higher level of accuracy than is possible with Type 2. Type 3 audits are normally undertaken to support business cases for capital intensive upgrades that require more certainty around savings outcomes.  Type 3 audits include the audits of the following systems:
  • compressed air
  • pumps
  • fans
  • refrigeration
