Energy efficiency is today a crucial topic in the built environment- for both designers and managers of buildings. This increasedinterest is driven by a combination of new regulations anddirectives within the EU and worldwide to combat global warming.

All buildings now must now acquire and display an EPC (energyperformance certificate), a rating similar to the A–G ratinggiven to white goods. But in order to understand how to be moreefficient in energy use, you need first to understand themechanisms of both energy requirements and how energy is used inbuildings. 

Energy Audits: a workbook for energy management inbuildings tackles the fundamental principles of thermodynamicsthrough day-to-day engineering concepts and helps studentsunderstand why energy losses occur and how they can be reduced. Itprovides the tools to measure process efficiency and sustainabilityin power and heating applications, helping engineers to recognizewhy energy losses occur and how they can be reduced utilizingfamiliar thermodynamic principles.

The author describes the sources of energy available today;explains how energy is used in buildings – and how energy islost - and how this can be controlled and reduced. Investments inenergy efficiency are considered for a number of case studiesconducted on real buildings

The book explains the theory; illustrates it with case studiesand worked examples; and then tests students’ understandingwith tutorial problems. This is an invaluable resource for studentson engineering and building courses where energy management isnow a core topic.
