determine how and where energy is used and to

identify methods for energy savings. There is now a
universal recognition of the fact that new
technologies and much greater use of some that
already exist provide the most hopeful prospects for
the future. The opportunities lie in the use of
existing renewable energy technologies, greater
efforts at energy efficiency and the dissemination of
these technologies and options. This energy audit of
the Avr&Svr college area was carried out by us.
This report is just one step, a mere mile marker
towards our destination of achieving energy
efficiency and we would like to emphasize that an
energy audit is a continuous process. We have
compiled a list of possible actions to conserve and
efficiently utilize our scarce resources and
identified their savings potential. The next step
would be to prioritize their implementation. We
look forward with optimism that the institute
authorities, staff and students shall ensure the

efficient. It is a fact that our college community
uses a huge amount of energy and it is also very
obvious that we waste quite a sizable chunk of it.
Our college bill keeps up around INR 9, 60,000 per
year. This amount is huge and thus naturally attracts
attention when we understand that quite a lot of
energy is being wasted, which in turn would mean
that huge amount of financial resources are being
Avr&Svr College has an approximate area of 6
acres with student community strength of around
3000 and about 200 faculty. There is a floating
population of the order of 500 in the campus as the
residents enjoy the right of way through the
campus. Avr&Svr College enjoys 24 hour
electricity supply while within a few hundred feet

of the institute there are 12 hour power cuts.

Avr&Svr college has a demand of 200KW
(APSPDCL data). Operating power factor over
around a good 0.98.
The methodology adopted for this audit was:
Formation of audit groups for specific areas and
end use.
Visual inspection and data collection.
Observations on the general condition of the facility
and equipment and quantification.
Identification / verification of energy consumption
and other.

Types of Energy Audits:

There are three types of audits that are described

Detailed calculations, analyses and assumptions.
Potential energy saving opportunities.

type of audit used is discussed at the preliminary
consultation stage. The best way to determine the
appropriate type of audit is to look at the
Energy Use Index (EUI) of the facility or building
involved (see Appendix A).
