Estimate Energy Baseline based on available information to establish the running costs of the plant over its lifetime and the main energy usage areas within the plant. This provides a focus for the review and helps to quantify the savings initiatives proposed.
Analyse the Plant Design, Identify Alternative Processes/ Technologies or Optimise Energy Performance of Existing Processes. This normally takes the form of a 1-day workshop attended by the Public Sector Body, Project Design Consultants and an Energy Efficient Design Expert, followed by a report with the main savings estimated.
Implementation consists of ensuring:
(a) that identified EED initiatives make it into final tender documents, are installed and commissioned correctly, and
(b) that savings due to EED are quantified.
