Energy Management Tools
a) Occupancy Profile
How to complete the building occupancy
- First list the main areas of the site, these should be separated into areas where lighting or heating is controlled
- Then, for each day of the week, record the times when it is occupied
Estimate if the area is fully or partially occupied
- List the unoccupied periods
Use the occupancy schedule to
- Check that any timer schedules match this unoccupied period
- Control heating, cooling and lighting
b) Key Cost Reduction Check List
c) Survey Check List
Begin by taking meter readings. Then move through the building noting where energy saving actions are/are not being undertaken. The goal is to note areas where energy could be saved by making changes to day to day operation.
d) Low Cost Replacement Check List
Whilst looking at the Good Housekeeping actions that could save energy you should consider the appliances and plant and
their replacement or maintenance. Are they operating efficiently? When they were last maintained? When will they need
replacing? Are they low energy appliances? Could they be replaced with lower energy consuming versions?
e) Controls, Timers and Switches Record Sheet
Use this sheet to record the details of timers and switches and operations that will help achieve the energy savings measures outlined in the 'CO2 Reduction Opportunities' section - these may change over time.
