During the early 1950-ies, when the country headed for an industrial-agricultural direction there was no emphasis accentuated on energy saving, protecting the environment and consumer consumption. Issues began to arise in the first part of the 50ies as the consequential absence of electric energy productivity which resulted in the restriction of consumption.
In the following decades the main focus was directed towards increasing the level of production by building new power plants. This process itself would never have been satisfactory to undermine the effectiveness of the power of energy and the surfacing of new technology and structural improvements in the industry were just as imperative. The new products intertwined with the technological improvements have contributed to the decrease of the need for energy in the production fields.
In our country, by the power plants becoming secondary nature, the accent is focused on energy saving. Its importance would control the country’s contingency on imported sources as well as increase competitiveness in the economy within, so the need for creating GDP units won’t exceed the international average. In my opinion, to insure the maintaining of the current energy needs the optimal energy effectiveness method would provide the fastest and sufficient results in an order to convert to the new and environmentally safe energy sources. The fact of not playing any role in an actual evaluation process inspired me to complete my dissertation at one particular consumer in a form of an energy audit. The selected consumer was a cold store, which was built in the 70ies and went through a major remodeling in the 90ies.
