ENERGY EFFICIENT MODERNISATION OF A BUILDING

February 2012

ENERGY EFFICIENT MODERNISATION OF A BUILDING

The company bought a new building to relocate production and administration. After acquisition of the building the management realised that it caused higher energy costs than expected and that it jeopardised commercial viability.


The company asked RuSEFF experts to conduct an energy assessment and to propose measures to reduce energy costs. RuSEFF experts suggested to decrease the threatening energy costs by installation of the gas infrared heaters, replacement of the old windows, insulation of the roof, installation of the energy efficient water boilers, replacement of the lighting system.

Total proposed investments of USD 505 000 resulted in energy costs savings of 38% and return on investment of 29%. Annual savings amount is USD 114 000 and a payback period is 3.7 years. Environmental effect is 138 tonnes of CO2 - eq. saved per year.
