Agriculture and Food Energy Audit
The issue of energy consumption has been a growing interest across all industry sectors not only because of its immediate impact on production costs but also because of its considerable impact on environmental sustainability.
An improvement in energy efficiency within your organisation can potentially bring significant business benefits. With this in mind, SGS has developed energy audit services to help you find the best information for improvement opportunities. Energy audit services are a key part of our dedicated energy efficiency services and the first step towards your comprehensive energy management strategy.
Our audit provides you with a clear understanding of energy consumption in your buildings and facilities. Quantitative findings can provide substantial practical guidelines for:
- Continuous improvement in production efficiency
- Identifying cost saving opportunities in energy efficiency
Starting with the development of an energy consumption inventory detailed auditing activities will be conducted to identify buildings and facilities with particular focus on rationalising their energy profiles. Field measurements will be also taken to quantify critical operating parameters. Following the establishment of an energy consumption profile, the potential energy saving opportunities can be identified. Energy management strategy and particular energy reduction programs can be organised and planned with reference to energy audit results.
Our energy audit services can further provide a range of additional benefits. The findings of an energy audit can be a good reference for your management in supporting commercial decisions. You can acquire a sustainable reputation with your customers. As the law or policy for energy efficiency will be enacted sooner or later; earlier preparation can enhance your competitiveness.
A diverse range of industries have already experienced improved energy and production efficiency following our energy audit services. SGS is the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, with a network of over 1,000 offices and laboratories around the globe. As such, there is no organisation better equipped to deliver a robust solution that best suits your energy efficiency needs.
