Energy Auditing for Industrial Facilities is an introduction to the planning, conducting, documenting, and evaluating of an energy audit. An energy audit identifies potential causes of energy or resource waste and serves as the first step in making a facility more energy efficient.

Specific types of measurements and their interpretations are described for systems common in an industrial facility. The textbook also covers prioritizing, implementing, and verifying energy-efficiency projects as well as giving suggestions for sustaining long-term results. After studying this material, technicians familiar with building systems and the use of test instruments will be able to participate in an energy audit.
