Several audit experts make an interview with the persons in charge of the management standards for the factory or building which is going to have an energy audit. Then, they make an on-site survey how the facilities in the factory or building are operated. After the survey, they draw up a list of areas where remedies are needed and give advice for energy saving potential and needed actions. This energy audit program is conducted free of charge by the Energy Conservation Center Japan (ECCJ).
