Energy Audit is a process including Inspection, Survey & Analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building, a process or a system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output(s) plugged. Energy Audit is the quickest, cheapest and cleanest way to reduce Energy Consumption. Also, it is a fast growing demand on the part of everyone in the market.

a) Preparation for energy audit
- Defining the audit criteria
- Defining the audit scope
- Selection of energy audit team
With around 600 mills the pulp and paper industry in India is the 15th largest in the world. India is also the fastest growing market for paper consumption posting 10.6 % increase in per capita paper consumption in 2009-10. This growing market provides ample opportunity for the paper industry to expand, but also necessitates increased energy efficiency to make the industry growth sustainable while meeting the rising demand.
Co-generation or Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is the technique where two useful forms of energy are produced from a single primary energy source. Typically, power production from fossil fuels is of very low efficiency (around 35 %) that makes co-generation an attractive option to increase the overall efficiency of any production facility while accruing monetary benefits.
Cement industry in India is the second largest in the world. India contributes about 8 % of total global cement production. The industry produced 330 million tonnes in 2011 – 12, with housing sector as its biggest consumer. Infrastructure, commercial, and industrial demands also contribute. But the per capita cement consumption is quite low, which gives great scope for the industry to grow.
India is the fourth largest producer of crude steel in the world. Total crude steel production of 86.5 million tonnes in 2014 is expected to grow up to 91.86 million tonnes by 2015. With such rapid growth in the sector, it is possible for India to become the third largest steel producer in the world by 2015 – 16.
Sugar industry in India is the second largest, after cotton textiles, agricultural-based process industry. In the 2010 – 11 season sugar production was estimated 243.50 lack tonnes. Aside from sugar as the main product, the sugar processing produces additional products – molasses and bagasse. Molasses is an important ingredient in alcohol distilleries, whereas bagasse can be used as the fuel in biomass boilers.
The Bureau of Energy Efficiency launched Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) in 2007 that sets minimum standards for energy consumption in commercial buildings that have a connected load of 100 kW or more. While meeting the standards is voluntary for the moment, it is prudent for firms to look at their building energy consumption, and improve the energy efficiency as it carries significant financial benefits.
Textile sector in India is one of the largest industries contributing 14 % of the total manufacturing production, and 4 % of GDP. While cotton remains the single largest raw material for the textile industry, silk, wool, synthetic fibres, and jute remain important commodities for the sector.
