We believe that for all energy saving or energy efficiency projects it is very important that the actual impact of the project can be verified and quantified after completion.

This is achieved by installing an independent energy and power quality meter before the project begins to establish a baseline for energy consumption and power quality. These baselines are not pure load profiles, kilowatt-hour (kWh) and rand values, but are connected to parameters like temperature and production to ensure that the actual impact of the project is quantified.

For example, if a facility is using 10 000 kWh/day as a baseline and after the project is completed the facility is only using 4 000 kWh/day after completion of the project, it can be considered a success with a 60% saving, right?

But what if the facility was producing 1 000 units/day (10 kWh/unit) at the beginning and afterwards production was down to 500 units/day, thus 8 kWh/unit? The actual saving was therefore only 20%.

It is thus important for the baseline to be connected to production, occupancy or a similar type of parameter.

In addition to being able to monitor and verify the actual savings achieved during a project we are also able to determine the impact of energy saving projects on power quality by establishing a baseline beforehand and again measuring the power quality afterwards. As many modern energy saving technologies can have a negative impact on power quality it is important to ensure that you are not saving energy, but breaking your equipment due to poor power quality and thus negating the positive effect of the energy savings.
