Abstract
This paper is written with respect to the energy audit work conducted at a steel rolling mill factory. It mainly focused in understanding the production processes of the steel industry, in identifying the potential energy wastage areas and on understanding the types of all the industry loads & their ratings. This study specifically gives due emphasis on analysis of electrical energy bills data so as to recommend appropriate energy conservation & efficiency improvement measures. The results obtained from this energy auditing work helped the industry to plan production time rescheduling activities in order to minimize unnecessary energy costs from the monthly energy charges. It was observed that the factory has smaller operational power factor and as a result of this an additional power factor charge was incurred in some of its monthly energy bills. Besides, unnecessary peak demand charges were also identified in some of the monthly energy bills.
In this particular analysis work Quantities like electricity use per day, percentage load factor and energy intensity were calculated by using an empirical formulas. The calculated results were used for analyzing the energy use patterns of the steel industry.

Key words: energy costs, load factor, energy intensity, power factor charge, production re-scheduling.
