Uncover opportunities through data gathering and engineering investigations.


Discovery is the starting point for organisations seeking to make a change. Also called “auditing” or “energy assessments”, this activity identifies energy, carbon and cost-saving opportunities, which are the building blocks for any transition plan. EM3 are process energy experts, so our discovery extends beyond buildings and utilities, deep into your core energy use.


Your Operation

  • Identify energy-saving opportunities.
  • Categorise and prioritise opportunities based on your objectives.
  • Lower bills by understanding consumption patterns.
  • Improve energy security and resilience by reducing dependence on imported energy.
How It Works

The Discovery

  1. Data Collection

    We will undertake a comprehensive Energy Savings Opportunity Survey that will delve deep into the heart of your energy consumption landscape. Our survey will be unique to your organisation and encompass your industrial processes, utilities, buildings, and transport operations.
  2. Data Analysis

    Our experts will review your energy consumption data for a holistic view of your energy use and performance. Armed with these invaluable insights, our team will be empowered to make informed energy efficiency recommendations across your entire site or organisation.
  3. Energy Roadmap

    The roadmap will help you better understand the projects and initiatives that will allow you to optimise your energy use, reduce your environmental footprint, and ultimately, reduce energy costs and carbon.
  4. Energy Maturity

    We map your current state on an energy maturity scale and comment on how you can progress on this scale with a structured programme.
Standards & Compliance

Discovery is conducted to the ISO 50002 Standard and complies with the European Energy Directive, Ireland’s S1426 (3), ESOS (UK) and most European national legislation.
