Elion – Illuminating Energy Efficiency at an Ahmedabad Research Institute


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its commitment to empowering sustainable research through a recent project at a leading research institute in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. This case study highlights the effectiveness of Energy Audits in identifying hidden inefficiencies, optimizing energy consumption, and ultimately supporting the institute’s research endeavors with a reduced environmental footprint.

Project Overview:

Our client, a renowned research institute in Ahmedabad, recognized the crucial role of energy efficiency in reducing operational costs and minimizing their environmental impact. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive energy audit, seeking to illuminate potential savings opportunities within their diverse research facilities.

Energy audit services


  • Our experienced energy auditors meticulously assessed the entire institute, including:
    • Research laboratories with specialized equipment.
    • Administrative offices and common areas.
    • Building envelope and HVAC systems.
    • Lighting, electrical systems, and data center operations.
  • We monitored and analyzed energy consumption patterns across different facilities and equipment categories.
  • We conducted on-site inspections and reviewed operational procedures to identify areas for improvement.
  • We utilized advanced data analysis tools and energy modeling software to quantify potential savings and prioritize recommendations.

Unveiling Energy Drainers:

The energy audit revealed several areas for improvement:

  • Outdated equipment: Inefficient laboratory equipment and aging HVAC systems consumed significant amounts of energy.
  • Poor lighting practices: Traditional lighting fixtures in offices and laboratories contributed to unnecessary energy wastage.
  • Unoptimized operating protocols: Lack of automation and control measures led to inefficient equipment usage and energy leakage.
  • Data center inefficiencies: Server equipment and cooling systems within the data center were found to be energy-intensive.

Tailored Solutions for Sustainable Research:

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report with prioritized recommendations, including:

  • Upgrading to energy-efficient laboratory equipment and implementing smart controls.
  • Retrofitting offices and laboratories with LED lighting and occupancy sensors.
  • Automating HVAC systems and implementing demand control strategies.
  • Optimizing data center operations through server virtualization and cooling system upgrades.
  • Raising awareness and implementing energy-saving practices among researchers and staff.


By diligently implementing our recommendations, the Ahmedabad research institute achieved remarkable results:

  • Significant energy cost savings: Reduced energy consumption led to substantial cost reductions, freeing up resources for further research advancements.
  • Improved sustainability profile: Lower energy demand translated to a minimized environmental footprint, aligning with the institute’s commitment to responsible research.
  • Enhanced research environment: Optimized energy consumption improved laboratory conditions and contributed to a more comfortable and productive research environment.
  • Demonstrable leadership in sustainability: Implementing energy-saving measures positioned the institute as a leader in sustainable research practices, attracting potential collaborators and donors.


This case study exemplifies the power of Elion Technologies’ energy audits in empowering research institutions towards a sustainable future. By providing data-driven insights and customized solutions, we helped this Ahmedabad institute not only reduce their energy costs and environmental impact but also create a more efficient and impactful research environment.
