CitySwitch Energy Audit Toolkits

Effective management of your organisation’s energy usage makes good business sense. It can produce  both environmental and economic benefits and importantly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions. These Energy Audit Toolkits have been developed to assist non-technical or semi-technical energy managers in small to medium organisations:
  •  identify actions to improve energy efficiency through the use of a simple but detailed audit checklist;
  • and develop plans for implementing energy efficiency actions.

The checklists contain notes supplying the auditor with further explanation or hints on how to compete the tasks. It should be possible to complete the majority of tasks through simple observation.
