The major objectives of energy audit in lighting system include: • • • • • • Measurement and comparison of illumination levels at various locations Measurement of total power consumption of all lighting feeders Calculate the installed load efficacy in terms of lux/watt/m² (existing vs design) for general lighting installation. Compare calculated value with the norms for specific types of interior installations for assessing improvement options. To suggest ways and means to optimize the illumination levels and to optimize the power consumption at different locations. To identify energy saving measures and quantifies the energy and cost savings.

The steps involved in conducting energy audit of lighting plant are: • • • • Data collection Observations, measurement and Analysis Exploration for calculations energy conservation measures with detailed techno-economic
