Abstract: This Paper is an investigation on methods involved for different energy auditing practices using the Internet of Things (IOT) technology. A practical sugar industry environment is emulated to get the overall power delivery at each stage of the sugar industry process. The sensors utilized at different sugar making process are discussed with the perspective of the power usage at each of the sugar processing stages. The Raspberry Pi based logging and analysis process is developed for the sugar industry. The sensors are connected to the power usage capability and the data collected are logged to be able to analyse the power delivery and carry out the energy auditing in the complete process. Python based UI for the complete energy auditing process is developed and the results are discussed in detail. The emulation carried out is found to replicate the complete process of sugar industry and the auditing is scaled up to match the specifications of the practical sugar industry. Suggestions regarding the power conservation measures are provided to be followed by the industry. The manual means of energy audit is removed to replace it with the automated energy audit as given in the graphical form. It is observed that the total cost for the energy audit is getting reduced except for the capital cost.
