The Essential Role of Energy Audits in Energy Management and Sustainability

Imagine you are managing a facility that consumes at least 15,000kWh per month. Did you know that there are potentially several ways you could be saving on energy costs while maintaining your output and comfort? Welcome to the world of Energy Audits, a mandatory requirement for facilities in Kenya under the Energy Management Regulations, 2012.

Energy Auditing

Why is an Energy Audit Important?

An energy audit is essentially an assessment of processes, buildings, or equipment with the aim of understanding the amount of energy utilized and exploring opportunities for energy saving. But why exactly should your facility undergo an energy audit?

  1. Billing Verification: It helps you verify if the amount of energy consumed corresponds to the bills charged by your utility company.
  2. Energy Index Establishment: An energy audit helps you establish an energy index for your facility. This is essentially a measure of energy consumed per unit of production or occupancy.
  3. Electrical Leakages and Losses: Energy audits identify any electrical leakages or losses, helping you avoid power peaks and other wasteful situations.
  4. Cost-Saving: Lower electricity bills are always a welcome change! With an energy audit, you can drastically drive down your energy costs.
  5. Environmental Impact: Less energy consumption means a reduced carbon footprint, leading to less pollution and waste. It’s a win-win for you and the planet!

Our Services

We offer comprehensive energy audits, including both Electrical and Thermal audits.

Electrical Energy Audits

In an electrical energy audit, we analyze energy billing patterns for any potential penalties or fixed rates. We assess various aspects such as amperage, voltage, power factor, and kWh on motors. Thermographic analysis of electrical cables, panels, and motors is carried out to detect any instances of overheating. Our audit identifies various energy-saving areas, helping you make informed decisions.

Thermal Energy Audits

Our thermal audits involve determining the efficiencies of generation, distribution, and utilization of thermal energies. From boiler efficiency tests to steam trap analysis, we cover all the bases to help you optimize your energy use and conserve where possible.


Energy audits are not only about compliance with regulations. They are essential tools that help businesses become more energy-efficient, sustainable, and cost-effective. If you are a business owner or a facility manager in Kenya, an energy audit is a step you can’t afford to skip.
