Unleashing Savings and Safety with Multi-City Electrical Audit and Thermography for Retail Giant


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt Ltd is proud to showcase its expertise in electrical audits and thermography through a transformative project with a leading pan-India retail chain. This case study highlights the power of combining these innovative approaches to create a safer, more efficient, and cost-effective electrical infrastructure across multiple stores.

Project Overview:

Our client, a renowned retail giant, operates hundreds of stores across India. Ensuring optimal energy consumption and electrical safety throughout their diverse portfolio was paramount. They partnered with Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive electrical audit and thermographic survey across a selection of their stores in key cities.

Electrical Safety Audit


Electrical Audit:

  • Our certified electrical engineers meticulously inspected all electrical components, from switchboards and panels to wiring and lighting systems.
  • We measured energy consumption patterns, analyzed load balancing, and identified any potential safety hazards.
  • Advanced data acquisition tools were used to collect precise measurements and generate detailed reports.

Thermographic Survey:

  • Trained thermographers utilized cutting-edge thermal imaging cameras to capture temperature variations across electrical equipment.
  • These images, invisible to the naked eye, revealed hidden issues like:
    • Overheated connections and components
    • Faulty transformers and switchgear
    • Imbalanced loads and inefficiencies
    • Potential fire hazards

Combined Insights:

By combining the data from both methodologies, we were able to paint a comprehensive picture of the electrical health of each store. This allowed us to identify not only immediate safety concerns but also areas for optimization and cost savings.

Findings and Recommendations

The combined audit revealed a range of issues across the stores, including:

  • Inefficient lighting systems: Traditional lamps could be replaced with LEDs for significant energy savings.
  • Outdated equipment: Upgrading aging transformers and switchgear could improve safety and reliability.
  • Unbalanced loads: Optimizing load distribution could reduce energy waste and prevent equipment overload.
  • Potential fire hazards: Loose connections, faulty wiring, and overheating components posed safety risks.

Based on these findings, we provided a detailed report with prioritized recommendations for each store. These included:

  • Specific equipment upgrades and replacements.
  • Lighting retrofitting plans.
  • Load balancing adjustments.
  • Preventive maintenance schedules.


By implementing our recommendations, the client achieved remarkable results:

  • Enhanced electrical safety across all stores.
  • Reduced maintenance costs and minimized downtime.
  • Improved environmental footprint through reduced energy usage.


This case study exemplifies the synergy between electrical audits and thermography in optimizing electrical infrastructure. By combining meticulous data analysis with thermal insights, Elion Technologies helped this retail giant achieve significant savings, enhance safety, and ensure the smooth operation of their stores across India.
