What is a Level 2 Commercial Energy Audit?

In today's energy-conscious landscape, optimising energy efficiency is not only a responsible choice but also a strategic business decision. A Level 2 Energy Audit is more comprehensive than a Level 1 audit and involves a more in-depth analysis of energy consumption and potential energy-saving opportunities.

From analysing energy data and conducting comprehensive assessments to providing tailored recommendations, this audit empowers you to make informed decisions that enhance your bottom line, reduce environmental impact, and propel your business towards a sustainable future.


What is involved?

A Level 2 Commercial Energy Audit goes beyond the surface, delving into the intricacies of your commercial building or facility to reveal hidden opportunities for improvement. It is suitable for single sites, processes or fleets, to identify and evaluate a range of specific coherent opportunities with quantified costs and benefits.

A Level 2 audit provides a detailed understanding of energy consumption, and of relative contribution from each energy source including average and marginal costs. It can also help businesses to identify and evaluate low cost energy saving opportunities, providing comprehensive savings calculations and preliminary investment costs.

During the audit, our assessors will prepare energy consumption profiles and benchmarks (depending on consumption data available) to indicate current efficiency and to identify high energy consumers or inefficiencies and to identify anomalies in daily, weekly, monthly or seasonal patterns. They will conduct a walk through survey to inspect energy users and to identify low cost and easily quantifiable energy savings opportunities, and identify more capital intensive energy saving improvements. 

A Level 2 audit can provide typical and Indicative savings and payback periods calculated using common rules and simple payback method (Life-Cycle Costing Analysis where appropriate for ESOS Audits). It can also outline the steps required to generate specific actions that can be implemented (ESOS: Action Plan).
