Abstract – An energy audit is an inspection, survey and analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building, process or system to reduce amount of energy input in to the system without negatively affecting the outputs. Energy audits don’t save money and energy for companies unless the recommendations are implemented. Audit reports should be designed to encourage implementation, but often they impede it instead. This energy audit was carried out in a foundry. Energy auditing is done in the fields of furnaces, cooling tower, compressor, sand plant, core shop, molding and other loads. In this paper, we discuss our experience with writing industrial energy audit reports and suggest some ways to make the reports more user-friendly. The goal in writing an audit report should not be the report itself; rather, it should be to achieve implementation of the report recommendations and thus achieve increased energy efficiency and energy cost savings for the customer.
