Abstract

Nowadays energy saving goals are challenging energy consumers in the industrial- and municipal sector as well. To reach these goals many energy consumers need help to figure out economic ways to save energy. Energy audits by an outside consultant are useful help when determining the energy saving potential of the company. Energy audits are good examples of successful energy saving. Lappeenranta University of Technology has done energy efficiency related research for a long period in interactive cooperation with Finnish companies. Parts of the LUT's energy efficiency research are energy audits for different kind of energy consumers. LUT's energy audit project was started in the fall of 2008. Focus of the LUT's energy audits has been energy efficiency of pumping processes, because the subject is widely studied at the department of LUT Energy. It has been indicated that the energy consumption of a pumping system might be decreased up to 50 percent by changing the drive components with more efficient ones and by changing the applied control method of the pump. LUT's energy audits have been implemented for pumping processes in industry and also for municipal water supply and sewerage systems. In addition to pumping systems LUT's energy audits have studied  More>>

Energy audits by an outside consultant are useful help when determining the energy saving potential of the company. Energy audits are good examples of successful energy saving. Lappeenranta University of Technology has done energy efficiency related research for a long period in interactive cooperation with Finnish companies. Parts of the LUT's energy efficiency research are energy audits for different kind of energy consumers. LUT's energy audit project was started in the fall of 2008. Focus of the LUT's energy audits has been energy efficiency of pumping processes, because the subject is widely studied at the department of LUT Energy. It has been indicated that the energy consumption of a pumping system might be decreased up to 50 percent by changing the drive components with more efficient ones and by changing the applied control method of the pump. LUT's energy audits have been implemented for pumping processes in industry and also for municipal water supply and sewerage systems. In addition to pumping systems LUT's energy audits have studied energy consumption of structures. An energy audit for building takes into account the HVAC systems of the structure and figures out ways to save energy for example in heating, ventilation and lighting. In energy audits energy saving potential has been discovered especially at the large sized pumps which are running most of the time. Also the applied control method of the pump has shown to play a significant role in energy efficiency of the pumping system. When it comes to the energy audits of buildings, the main points of consumption have been revealed. LUT's energy audits have discovered energy saving potential for example in ventilation, lighting and insulation of the structure. Led-technology and its possibilities in general lighting has been one of the fields that many clients of the audits have been especially interested in. There is an aim to develop LUT's energy audits by means of the experience gained during the auditing project. Energy auditing process is under improvements also from the business economical point of view by thesis study. Service oriented business requires defined methods, focusing and development of the whole service chain from creating the customer connections to after care of the customership. (orig.)}
