What happens next?


Introduction and audit scoping

An SSE Airtricity representative will contact your business to introduce you to our Energy Audit offering and its benefits. After that, there is an audit scoping. This helps define the scope of the works to be carried out in an Energy Audit, as well as to identify and collect the initial data required pre-audit.


Development of audit agenda

The Energy Audit agenda includes identification of key site personnel, significant energy users and areas of focus. When all of the relevant information has been provided then a site visit can be scheduled. It is vital that the key site personnel identified as part of the audit agenda are available on site on the day of the site visit.


Site audit and review of significant energy users

Our Energy Auditor will carry out a detailed analysis of the site during their visit to verify various energy users. This involves developing an understanding of the sites energy usage patterns and practices, while also establishing the level of energy management currently in place on the site.


Development of a register of opportunities

A detailed analysis will be carried out on the energy data from your site. A list of potential energy efficiency opportunities on site will be developed, highlighting where energy and cost savings can be made.


A final audit report

A final Energy Audit including comparative graphical results of the audit findings that we will present and discuss with you. Our report will also include recommendations of energy efficiency improvement actions, expert advice on financial supports and further guidance of how SSE Airtricity can support you in achieving your goals.
