A commercial energy audit has tremendous upside for any business. Not only does it provide an air of clarity in understanding a business’s energy consumption across the board, but it also identifies vital areas in which power optimisation strategies can be implemented which can save overall costs in the future.
At 13KUGA, we take pride in our unparalleled ability to provide apt and workable solutions for our clients with carefully calculated and accredited commercial energy audits. While it is possible for a company to conduct these analyses in-house, the necessary depth of knowledge and comprehensive understanding of optimal power solutions needed can leave many avenues of improvement unheeded – this is where we come in.
This article will cover the fundamentals of a professionally conducted energy audit and how it can contribute heavily to a company’s image, budget, and efficiency rating.

What Is Involved With An Energy Audit?
In our overview, we will carefully evaluate each facet of a business’s current operation to identify opportunities for power optimisation. We achieve this through a thorough inspection of power usage data and analysis of baseline correlations between power usage and business operations.
After identifying key factors that may be impeding progress, we then consolidate our findings into a comprehensive final energy audit report that offers strategies and avenues of approach for more sustainable power practices in the business.
We also work with you in planning ahead for any recommendations you choose to go forward with, using our years of experience as a backbone for our services and solutions.
How Does A Business Benefit From An Energy Audit Report?
Cutting costs is certainly the main proponent of an energy audit. This is because the report itself will contain a variety of key identifiers of wasteful or underutilised power practices that when addressed, can cut costs significantly and reduce a company’s bottom line expenditure.
The derivation of excessive power usage aside, the optimisation strategies found within an energy audit can also prolong the life span of business equipment which in itself is a cost-saving measure that many commercial enterprises are likely looking for.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Carbon emissions are a hot topic of conversation around the world, and in Australia – it is not only morally beneficial for a business to consider greener measures, but it is also advantageous from a reputational standpoint.
Companies that adopt a green policy or at least a less wasteful one have a notable improvement in customer perception which is always beneficial for the bottom line and prospective profit margins further down the road.
Productivity & Performative Boosts
A company that has a vested stake in its own productivity and performance is certainly one destined for growth. This is why an energy audit and the improvements that derive as a result will notably improve productivity metrics over the long term as an efficiently run facility and enterprise complements productivity.
What Information Is Generally Required From A Business?
In preparation for the inspection, it is best to have as much information as possible on hand to provide your auditor so that they can make the most accurate measurement and analysis possible. This can include all information and expenditure documentation related to power usage and costs.
It is also beneficial and wise to have a decent idea of the current state of power use in the facility – this includes patterns of usage/hours of operational usage.
