Mandatory energy audit with extra guarantees
The site of Herbosch Kiere in Kallo is subject to the Flemish Region’s obligation to conduct an energy audit.
Vlarem art. 93 and the corresponding regulations of the Flemish Energy Agency (VEA) determine the modalities of the energy audit.
Factor4 also proposes a savings plan with a result guarantee based on the findings of the audit. In this way, the customer can choose to actually carry out the measures in the audit, to enjoy the guaranteed savings and thus to recover the costs of the mandatory audit.
The first phase is concluded with the audit report and its submission via the web application of Flemish Energy Agency (VEA). Actions in the first phase:
- Preparation of pre-audit questionnaire and description of the audit process.
- Discussion of questionnaire and planning audit visit and involved team (who, what, when)
- Tour and inspection of buildings, transport fleet and installations
- Preparation of the audit report
- Discussion of the draft version of the audit report
- Preparation of the final version of the audit report, including separate information to be reported to the Flemish Energy Agency
- Submission of the audit report to the Flemish Energy Agency
Factor4 also helped Herbosch-Kiere to comply with the obligation for the energetic inspection of air conditioners and heating audits. These audits were conducted together with the global energy audit.
The required heating audit for heating boilers> 100 kW is done using the H100 software made available by the Flemish government.
The energetic inspection of the airco’s is done by an accredited air-energy expert on the basis of a web application by the government.
In the second phase, Factor4 further elaborates a number of audit measures and coordinates the actual implementation of the selected actions from A to Z:
- reduction of energy consumption at night
- re-commissioning of the HVAC installation: optimization of the control and adjustment of the burner
- Adjustment of the lighting of the workshop
- renewal of the workplace heating
