On-farm energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important in the context of rising energy costs and concerns over greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Energy inputs represent a major and rapidly increasing cost to farmers around the world. Energy Audits are a crucial part of the energy and environmental management process. Energy audits refer to the systematic examination of an entity, such as a firm, organisation, facility or site, to determine whether, and to what extent, it has used energy efficiently. They determine how efficiently energy is being used, identify energy and cost saving opportunities and highlight potential improvements in productivity and quality. They may also assess any potential energy savings, for example, through fuel switching, tariff negotiation and demand side management
