“Do you need to Save Money, Improve Profits, Live Better & Help Earth...? Then follow the path of ‘Cleaner Production’”
The concern on energy consumption and energy cost has been increasing across all energy intensive industry sectors not only because of its immediate impact on production costs, but also because of environmental impacts. Cost of energy in any organization can potentially bring significantly down to improve business benefits, through proper energy services. NCPC, Sri Lanka is a member of “RECPnet” global network, leading the global Cleaner Production agenda, with a network of over 70 such Centres around the globe. As such, there is no organization better equipped to deliver a robust solution that best suits your energy efficiency needs.
NCPC offers following diversified energy services to help you find the best information for improvement opportunities.
Being an Energy Services Company (ESCo) registered under Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA) since the inception of ESCO system in Sri Lanka, NCPC has been expertized to offer customized energy auditing services to any industry sector.
Energy Audit attempts to balance the total energy inputs with its use and serves to identify all the energy streams in the systems and quantifies energy usage. Energy Audit helps in energy cost optimization, pollution control, safety aspects and suggests the methods to improve the operating & maintenance practices of the system. With a strong dedication to providing commissioning, an energy consulting and sustainability service, NCPC has successfully consulted on over 100s of detailed energy audits and assessments.
Our energy audits provide you with a clear understanding of energy consumption in your buildings and facilities. Quantitative findings can provide substantial practical guidelines for:.
Continuous improvement in production efficiency
Identifying cost saving opportunities in energy efficiency
Identify fast-payback energy retrofit opportunities
Make well-informed decisions on capital investments in your industry
Identify low-cost/no-cost O&M measures that have an immediate impact
Develop integrated capital improvement programs that coordinate energy
programs with other planned improvements Starting with the development of an energy consumption inventory detailed auditing activities will be conducted to identify buildings and facilities with particular focus on rationalizing their energy profiles. Field measurements will be also taken to quantify critical operating parameters. Following the establishment of an energy consumption profile, the potential energy saving opportunities can be identified. NCPC-SL equipped with latest energy measuring instruments including power analyzers, flue gas analyzers, Infrared thermometers and etc…
The type of industrial energy audit conducted depends on the function, size, and type of the industry, the depth to which the audit is needed, and the potential and magnitude of energy savings and cost reduction desired. Based on these criteria, an industrial energy audit can be classified into following types:
Primary energy assessments conducted in short time period based on history data and key instant measurements to identify general energy saving potentials.
More comprehensive results and accurate picture of industry energy consumption is given by detailed energy audit since it based on continuous recorded measurements and more history data.
Apart from standard energy audits, following specific energy services are offered by NCPC
Demand analysis for tariff changes
Power factor analysis for corrections
Equipment efficiency analyze
Illuminance level analysis for light replacements/ daylight utilization

A diverse range of industries have already experienced improved energy and production efficiency following our energy audit services.
Thermography is a method of inspecting electrical and mechanical equipment by obtaining heat distribution pictures. This inspection method is based on the fact that most components in a system show an increase in temperature when malfunctioning. The increase in temperature in an electrical circuit could be due to loose connections or a worn bearing in the case of mechanical equipment. By observing the heat patterns in operational system components, faults can be located and their seriousness evaluated
Electrical Safety (Loose connections, over loadings, etc…)
Areas with inadequate insulation
Air distribution performance
Building envelope integrity issues
The specific location of leaks/gaps/cracks in duct work
Suitability of roofing materials
NCPC offers diversified thermography services conducted by qualified ASNT-(IRT)L-II thermographer.
Regulators across the globe are increasingly introducing stringent standards of energy efficiency. Unpredictable fluctuations in both the energy market and fuel prices have underlined the value of energy efficiency for business operations. Therefore effective energy management is now an essential aspect of all successful businesses. The NCPC offers a range of training and education packages to suit those involved in any form of energy management and management training sessions for employees at all levels of your organization. All programs are delivered to the highest levels of expertise, integrity, and professionalism. Our energy management training courses are designed for various groups and interest including:

Energy audit workshop
Our training courses can be conducted as public courses or in-house and tailored to meet your specific requirements. Similarly, they can be contracted as one-off programs or form part of our energy management consultancy services. Our training consultants are pleased to discuss the most appropriate courses for your business needs. Whether you are working towards certification or requiring technical support to improve your energy efficiency, our energy management experts are ready to share their experiences and professional guidance.
Comply with the new ISO 50001 Energy Management standard and you will find it easier to improve energy performance, cut costs and both meet and exceed customer expectations.
Effective energy management systems (EnMS) help your organization to establish processes to improve energy performance. Implementation should reduce your energy costs, Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts. ISO 50001 establishes an international framework for the supply, use and consumption of energy in industrial, commercial and institutional organizations.
Implement an ISO 50001 compliant sustainable energy management system and demonstrate that your organization has completed a baseline of energy use and is committed to continuously improving its energy intensity.
NCPC with its system development network of qualified professionals can help you through the process towards becoming ISO 50001 certified with training, gap assessment and energy review audits.
