The energy audit in a feed production plan is intended to specify its energy consumption and, if it is too high, propose changes aiming to reduce it. The energy audit may be internal or external, depending on whether it is carried out by trained workers of the plant or by an external company. The internal audit requires inconsiderable financial expenses but in effect does not assure a full picture of the energy consumption in the production plant. Internal audits may show disadvantages of the plant which the management board should pay special attention to. The external audit in turn provides a wider view of the plant and shows things unnoticed or skipped during the internal audit. The stages of the audit have been specified in relevant rules of law. The results of the audit and their implementation do not need to require considerable financial expenses, but may instead lead to substantial savings, thanks to which the production is more profitable and the plant more competitive on the market
