Unformatted text preview: wever, especially in terms of how to measure and analyze electricity usage of equipment, has been around since the beginnings of energy management, and is typically described in the context of energy audits[2]. A traditional industrial energy audit consists of a trained energy auditor and/or energy management spet inspecting a manufacturing facility over a number of days or weeks to determine the main sources and uses of electricity in the facility and recommend energy improvement opportunities. Traditionally, these audits have focused on large central facility support systems. and acknowledge the difficulties of producing recommendations around more efficient use of specialized equipment used in manufacturing operations[2]. Data sources for these audits are typically utility hills, equipment documentation and site specific knowledge, with a notable lack of emphasis on metering of individual equipment[2].
