Energy efficiency

At CIT Energy Management, we combine wide practical experience with advanced scientific competence when addressing issues regarding the economical and technical consequences of implementing energy saving measures. We are also well-acquainted with, and have extensive knowledge about, energy simulation models for different types of buildings and how they are used.
CIT Energy Management has wide experience of: Identifying energy saving opportunities in existing buildings without compromising indoor climate requirements; Finding the best (most applicable, most reliable, most energy efficient) system solutions for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems; Drawing up requirement specifications and design criteria when planning new buildings.

Energy management

The term energy management applies to the collective measures that are used to draw up an energy policy, define energy efficiency goals and create a strategy/action plan in order to reach these goals. An energy management strategy makes it easier for an organisation to introduce processes to fulfil stipulated policy commitments and carry out measures leading to increased energy efficiency.

CIT Energy Management has extensive experience of:

  • Advising companies wanting to introduce energy management systems;
  • Advising companies regarding the best ways to manage energy related issues;
  • Introducing energy management systems, for example, within e5 – strategic energy planning (read more about e5 under Services).

Energy audits
Energy audits provide detailed information about the major energy users in individual buildings and which energy efficiency measures can be deemed reasonable and viable.

CIT Energy Management has extensive experience of:

  • Carrying out energy audits at different levels, from visual inspections to in-depth and comprehensive audits;
  • Carrying out computer simulations of energy use in different types of buildings and for a wide variety of operational uses;
  • Packaging measures that are deemed reasonable and viable to carry out in order to fulfil specific profitability conditions according to “Total Concept Project” (read more about “Total  concept project”under Services).

Investigations and requirement specifications

CIT Energy Management has many years of experience of advising public authorities, property owners and facility managers with regard to:

  • Drawing up requirements for indoor climate, protective ventilation and energy efficiency;
  • Developing design criteria of system solutions;
  • Drawing up and developing action plans for the implementation of energy efficiency measures and for quality assurance of indoor climate;
  • Management of data and statistics required by public authorities.

Total Energy Project
A “Total Energy Project” is a work method for energy efficiency improvements in existing non-residential buildings based on an economic model for profitability assessments. The method involves the creation of a package of suitable measures which will totally fulfil the profitability conditions stipulated by the property owner. In order to reach this profitability, the whole package of measures must be carried out in its entirety in a single undertaking.

Experiences from “Total Energy Projects” show that it is often feasible to reduce energy use by 50 % within the specified profitability limits.

“Total Energy Project” is carried out in the following steps:

  • Analysis of the buildings in question to identify energy saving measures that can be carried out simultaneously;
  • Implementation of selected measures that, in conjunction with each other, will be economically profitable, according to the calculations performed using the “Total Energy Project” internal rate of return tool (see “Totalprojekt” at;
  • Follow-up of the results by monthly measurements of energy use for a whole year.

Based on extensive experience gained from using the “Total  Energy Project” method, CIT Energy Management can offer:

  • Advice about, or implementation of, all the steps that are included in a “Total energy project” undertaking;
  • Training courses for companies and organisations in procurement of the energy assessments/audits that are required for successful and quality-assured “Total Energy Projects”;
  • Development of methods and tools that best suit individual companies and organisations so that the “Total Energy Project” method can be applied.
