Sankey Diagram Use in Energy Auditing

A presentation titled ‘La eficiencia energética: una opción estratégica para la empresa y para el país’ (‘Energy Efficiency – a strategic option for companies and for the country’) by Pedro Maldonado of the Energy Research Program (Programa de Estudos e Investigación de Energía) at Universidad de Chile features a Sankey diagram as an important tool in energy auditing.

The diagram shows exemplary losses (pérdidas) in heat generation, heat transmission and the use of heat. Use of heat is broken down into drying, pasteurization, evaporation, etc. The main message of the author: “The energy we purchase is not what we ultimately use as energy for our productive processes”.
