This As per the Energy Conservation Act, 2001, Energy Audit is defined as " the verification, monitoring and analysis of use of energy including submission of technical report containing recommendations for improving energy efficiency with cost benefit analysis and an action plan to reduce energy consumption".
The most effective and suggested way to achieve energy efficiency is through Energy Audit, Conservation and Management. The parts of GREEN9 team are working towards to save energy towards effective energy audit. As dated May 2015 the outcome of the team is the completion of energy audit for 50 Residential Houses, 10 Industries and 5 Commercial Buildings with suitable recommendation submitted to the respective clients. Out of submitted recommendations, 50% customers are agreed to implement immediately, 20% are agreed to implement within six months and 30% are not interested to implement.
