Collection of data related to energy measurement, see. § 5

Registering boiler

The first energy measurement of a boiler plant records and report the technical expert following data on the boiler:

















The boiler type. The technical expert choose between boiler types on the status list, which is available on SEEB's website www.seeb.dk









The boiler's age. Ages disclosed as boiler manufacture (eg 1980). Age appears from the boiler rating plate









The boiler's nominal delivered boiler capacity. The nominal delivered boiler output appears from the boiler rating plate and specified in kW









The address where the boiler is located











The annual energy measurement

The technical expert shall be the annual energy measurement make measurements of:













Combustion air temperature





Flue





smoke number





oxygen content





Carbon monoxide content (only for installations with blåflammebrændere)








The technical expert shall see. § 9, use electronic measuring equipment. The measuring equipment must be based on flue gas temperature and oxygen content could calculate røgtabet percentage of energy fed from the following calculation formula:



















In the formula, O2 oxygen concentration in percent. in the dry flue gas and t is the difference between flue gas and combustion air temperature.
The meter can use a different method of calculation, if it yields the same result within + - 0.1 per cent. point in the range 0 to 12 per cent. oxygen and in the range ΔT 0-250 K.
The annual energy measurement, the technical expert report boiler soot and røgtab to the DEA.

The technical expert must know by sight using a calculation program as Energy Agency develops and maintains. The calculation program must be used to enter records, making calculations and preparing report. The calculation program is based on the calculation core BE06 and a number of standard buildings that held up against the concrete buildings that boilers are located, via BBR number. The technical expert accesses the calculation program via a web service available on www.seeb.dk. In order to use the calculation program, the technical expert have a password assigned by the SEEB. Alternatively, the approach to the calculation program done through the approved firms management systems. This requires a separate agreement between the authorized company and SEEB.
The inspection includes:












Registration of annual consumption and calculation of seasonal performance





Registration of supplies





Inspection of boilers and heating system





Calculations proposed energy-saving measures and proposals to shift to another form of heating








The inspection results in a report automatically generated from the calculation program.

1. Registration of annual consumption and calculation of seasonal performance

Prior to the energy audit or by the energy audit seek technical expert information on the annual oil consumption by boiler owner. Upon inspection enter the technical expert in energy consumption Energy Agency's calculation program, which then calculates the boiler plant seasonal performance.

2. Registration of supplies
Prior to the energy audit, the technical expert examine the possibility for connection to gas or district heating as well as for a possible. compulsory affiliation.
By the inspection, the technical expert examine and enter the following regarding supply options in the DEA calculation program:













About the house is suitable for solar





About the house is suitable for geothermal





About the house is suitable for air to water heat pump





About the house is suitable for wood pellet











3. Inspection of boilers and heating system
Upon inspection, the annual energy measurement of the boiler system implemented and reported as normal.
By inspection, all essential components in the boiler room are reviewed. Registrations should be used for calculating the energy efficiency of existing installations, they could serve as the basis for energy-saving measures and suggestions for alternative forms of heating.
The following must be registered and entered in the DEA calculation program:













About the boiler is located within insulation frame.





Pump type of boiler plants





Other electronic pump for example. to separate circuit for underfloor heating





Insulation Standard hot water tank





Length and standard of insulation of pipes in the boiler room





Whether there is climate control with the possibility of night setback





About chimney must be changed, that it is applicable to high-efficiency boilers at boiler replacement





Plant Type (one- or two-tier systems)





Whether there are other inconveniences associated with the boiler system or heating system











4. Calculations, proposals for energy saving measures and proposals to shift to another form of heating
When the technical expert entered registrations and assessments on items 1 through 3 above in the DEA calculation program, the annual efficiency calculated. Replacing proposals are automatically generated by the calculation program and the program filters out automatically irrelevant replacement proposal and, apart from other alternatives when connecting to a district heating or gas.
Energy Agency's calculation program generates a report from the technical expert input. The technical expert prints the report and deliver it to the boiler owner or send it to the boiler owner by e-mail.



Appendix 4

Labels for energy measurements
The annual energy measurement must be announced on a sticker that obtained from the Danish Energy Agency. The label contains the following information:













Pre-inspection number





Date for energy measurement






The technical expert number





smoke number





Røgtab













If a registered company has its own service labels stating the smoke number and røgtab company may use a simplified label, also available from the Danish Energy Agency. The simplified label contains the following information:













Pre-inspection number





Date for energy measurement





The technical expert number













If a registered company to integrate Energy Agency sticker with customized labels, it is possible that after the approval of the Energy Agency.
