An energy audit is an examination of an energy consuming
equipment/system to ensure that energy is being used
“Energy Audit” means the verification, monitoring and
analysis of the use of energy including submission of technical
report containing recommendation for improving energy
efficiency with cost benefit analysis and an action plan to
reduce energy consumption.
Purposes of Energy Audit:
1. Find realistic energy saving.
2. Environmental protection.
3. National Energy supply/demand balance.
4. Occupational safety and health
5. Promoting energy efficiency and conservation.
6. Create important information, new ideas.
7. Define cost effective project.
8. Prepare action plans.
9. Develop staff training programs.
10.Aspiration of the improvement to corporate image by promoting energy
efficiency and conservation
Energy audit is an effective energy management tools. By identifying and
implementing the means to achieve energy efficiency & conservation, not
only can save energy but also equipment/system life can be extended. All
these means saving money.
Based on the principle of “The less energy is consumed, the less fossil fuels will
be burnt” so companies will generate relatively less pollutants and by-
products. Therefore, all concerning these will contribute to conserve the
environment and to enhance sustainable development.
Energy Audit = Saving Money +
Classification Of Energy Conservation Measures
Based on energy audit and analysis of the plant, a number of potential energy
saving projects can be identified. These may be classified into three
No cost/Low cost – High return
Medium cost- Medium return
High cost- High return
Normally the low cost - high return projects receive priority. Other projects
have to be analyzed, engineered and budgeted for implementation in a

Benefit of Energy Cell
Morang & Sunsari Industrial load is about 45 MW, when energy conservation
and audit was conducted it was found about 10% energy was saved. It
can result in financial capital, environmental quality. Economic security and
It will help to promote the concept and fundamentals of energy
conservation so that Industries in this region as well as in Nepal can
become more competitive.
To provide creative input into product and service innovation.
Present and Explain energy efficiency program to all sector of economy.
To promote energy awareness in Eastern region with coordination with sister
How Energy Cell will serve to Industries
1. Data collection and Analysis.
Comparison with standard /Industrial best, average.
Production data for industrial plants to find out operation improvement
2. Site Investigation
Discuss operation with site personnel, often they will know the energy use
Install energy monitoring where required to assess opportunities and to
identify energy waste.
3. Cost and Benefit Analysis when conducting
Feasibility study on energy saving projects cost and benefit analysis are
4. Preparation of concise report.
5. Staff training
Through Energy audit, staff are educated and trained.
6. Presentation of the result to management.
7. Action plan for project Implementation.
8. Follow up monitoring to prove result.
Typical annual saving from project with payback period between 0-2 year.
Improved knowledge of process operation leads to reduce energy waste.
Increased awareness of energy cost leads to more management focus on
energy use and improved energy conservation.
Energy audits, either walk-through or detailed energy audits, are essential for
all sectors of the economy (including residential/tertiary sector
buildings, School, College, Hotel, Hospital as well as industrial sector and
transport companies) to promote a better understanding of the current status
of end-use energy efficiency.
The audits, which are usually coordinated by engineering or facility
departments, will not only create awareness among those who are
functionally involved in the management of energy but also justify the
necessity for the implementation of energy efficiency activities.
And now last but not the least on behalf of Chamber of
Industry, Morang I would like to express my gratitude to FNCCI
and GIZ Nepal in supporting and promoting energy efficiency
in industries enterprises, with capacity building in Energy Audit
as an area of focus.
