Thank you for participating in the Energy Auditor Training Level 1 ! We believe you will
learn much on energy auditing from our lecture as well as hands-on session.
It is estimated that the electricity consumption will increase by 4.5% annually in nonJapan Asia, which is the fastest growth in the world. The very fact that you attend this
course, it shows that you are well aware of the emerging importance of Energy, one of
the most important commodity today. We want to welcome you to this exciting area of
Energy Management, which has sparked such high level of attention as a result of the
tremendous Asia industrial growth.
Why Energy management ?
A decade ago, energy is consider a commodity alongside with water, which we buy from
the utility companies and pay the monthly bills without asking much about how the
money is spent. With the transformation of the industry in term of management &
operation, energy has now become one of the aspect that need much effort to consume
it more efficiently. From the experience that we have learnt from our customers and
partners in the energy business, we believe Energy will continue to be one of the most
focused and high growth area in the next ten years. The following are the reasons :
This is the buzzword which alone has brought the word “Energy Management” into the
agenda of the top management of many huge corporations. The energy market of many
Asian countries has been deregulated in the past few years, which allows selected
consumers to purchase energy freely from a list of energy suppliers which they deem to
provide the best package. In this process, potentially large energy cost saving can be
achieved by selecting the most optimum supplier.
Different energy suppliers offer different energy package based on the energy
consumption pattern of their customers. In order to decide on the best party to buy
energy from, the consumer itself needs a clear understanding of their own energy
consumption pattern which in the past only the total kWh is sufficient. Comprehensive
energy monitoring has now becomes the integral part of this effort to save cost through
Company management is now aware of the huge energy bill that they are paying every
month, and the various energy saving programs have been design to reduce this cost.
The various operations will be studied to determine if the operation is energy efficient or
any unnecessary energy wastage. Activity Based Costing (ABC) is also a trend which has
been increasingly adopted by many companies to determine the production & operation
cost. It has been well proven that these activities if carried out well are able to cut down
energy cost substantially, and this is the reason for the increasing number of companies
looking into implementing these programs.
Green Business Trend
Being environmental friendly in the business operation is now a global business trend for
large Multinational Companies (MNCs). Environmental standard such as ISO14000
have been widely adopted by most MNCs which want to ensure their operation does not
adversely affect the well being of the environment. Energy consumption is one of the
most indirect environment pollutant. Amount of CO2 gas emitted correlate directly to
the amount of energy produced to meet the requirement of the consumers. CO2 being a
green house gas brings harmful effect to the environment which includes depleting the
ozone layer and increase the earth temperature. This is why energy conservation and
management has been one of the important agenda in ISO14000 apart from other
aspects such as waste management and emission control.
Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)
TPM is a philosophy which builds a close relationship between Maintenance &
Productivity. Production personnel will be instilled a sense of “ownership” of their
machines together with the maintenance personnel to continuously improve on the
As the machine operators are given the task of continuous improvement on their
machine together with the maintenance engineer, machine energy management is one of
the important activity that can be carried out. Through a simple energy audit on the
machine, many potential improvements can be uncovered. The TPM team can now
implement steps to improve the productivity and the maintainability of the machine.
Some of the example may be: Reduce energy consumption by shutting down the
machine during idle time, or early detection of machine abnormalities (Predictive
Our Energy Management Methodology
We design our training based on the widely used Six Sigma (6σ) Concept and
Methodology. Six Sigma is the proven structured approach which has helped companies
like Motorola and General Electric to achieve breakthrough performance. This
methodology is able to provide a frame work to assist a proper implementation of
energy management program, and a precise way to quantify the results in term of the
Whether or not you are currently using Six Sigma methodology, we believe this training
concept will certainly help you to implement a more effective energy management
program after you have completed the course.
What will you get at the end of the training ?
The Energy Auditor Training Level 1 (EA1) is designed to provide the trainee a
fundamental understanding and approach to conduct a simple yet informative energy
audit. The trainees will be able to carry out the role as an internal energy auditor to the
company and most importantly spearheading energy conservation program.
All participants will be awarded a Certification of Attendance upon submitting a self
proposed energy audit report on their respective facilities.
Thank you once again, and we wish you a pleasant training experience with us !
