Abstract [sv]

With increasing energy prices and increased focus on the environment we saw the need for companies to get control over their energy use and their emission of carbon dioxid. An analysis tool that integrates both these areas is, with our knowledge, not available on the market today. Therefore, our project became to develop such a tool.

By doing this degree project we would like to clarify that energy consumption and environmental impact are integrated. The less energy consumed by today’s society the smaller the environmental impact will be. Seen from an economical point of view the benefits from a reduced energy use are significant due to the fact that costs will diminish, for companies as well as people in general. Even the choice of energy source has an effect on the environmental impact.

The objective has been to provide a tool which companies can use to conduct their own analyse on their energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission, and also point out where in their business they can find such “hot-spots”.

In the provided Microsoft Excel based analyze tool there is a total of eight different sections out of which six concerns different parts of a company. Five of these six sections will be filled out by the user and the sixth gives a compilation of the company’s energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission. These sections are: Start, Introduction, Electricity, Heating, Cargo transports, Personal transports, Compilation and References. The sections are organized to make it more user friendly and to show the most important parts of a company, concerning both energy consumptions and carbon dioxide emission.

When we considered the tool to be finished, we had it sent out to a number of companies that tested it on their businesses and returned their opinions and suggestions on various changes.

In the beginning of the project our objective was that at the end we would have a complete tool ready for companies to use on their activities. This however, turned out to be too much of a challenge, which we realised after just a few weeks. The produced tool instead became a prototype for further development. All in all, the work has given us a valuable insight in the magnitude of work and time required for developing this kind of analysis tool.
