Electrical and thermal energy represent substantial operating costs to plants. Fluctuating, but generally increasing, power and fuel costs make it all the more important to boost energy efficiency, especially since such savings often go directly to the bottom line.
This Online Panel Discussion will provide pointers on how to save both electrical and thermal energy. We'll look a broad range of opportunities, such as variable-speed drives and more-energy-efficient designs of electrically driven equipment that promise savings, while upcoming government mandates on motor efficiency will affect what plants can buy. Analysis of compressed air systems often can identify ways to significantly lower compressor load. Likewise, many plants can save on thermal energy through better operation of furnaces, heat-transfer and cooling-water systems and via heat-recovery efforts.
