Potential Scans

A complete audit does not seem appropriate to you (yet)?

Our specialists will make a selection of measures to investigate on the spot, based on their years of experience. You get an overview of the potential impact of these measures and, if desired, an action plan to implement them.

Performing a potential scan consists of the following components:

  • Analysis of available data: overview of total energy consumption and benchmarking;
  • Carrying out the necessary site visits, including the necessary time with the building manager to gain insight into the historical and future use of the building;
  • Draw up an inventory with photos and analysis of the relevant building parts and technical installations with a view to energy-saving measures;

Condition of the energetically significant components: estimate based on age, visible or reported deficiencies and defects. The NEN2767 standard is used as a basis. Inventory and analysis of energy saving measures, including explanation of measures in function of saving potential and investment needs (total current cost). Explanation of the proposed measures to the building manager on site and after his feedback, make one-off adjustments to the potential scan. Preparation of a final potential scan report per building and a global plan of approach for the building stock of large organizations.


The potential scan report contains:

  • A listing and discussion of the possible energy saving measures including the savings potential. Energy-saving measures include: insulation of the building envelope (roof, floor, wall) , improvement of joinery, adjustment of controls, relighting, boilerplate renovation, PV installation, renovation of cooling, heat pumps and CHP, sub-metering and energy monitoring, …
  • A priority order. This takes into account the condition of the component, the impact on other measures and the practicality (most natural time for implementation).
  • An overview of the investment costs, the savings, the estimated payback time and the estimated savings in primary energy & CO2 emissions. The measures are assessed according to payback period (‘TVT’) and total current cost (‘TAK’).
