About this Program
Do you feel that the financial justification of energy conservation projects is an "uphill battle" in your organization? In this program, you will learn proven approaches – both technical and financial – for successful energy project funding and implementation.
The program provides a three faceted outlook of the best practices and strategies for focusing on (1) energy productivity improvement, (2) energy cost minimization, and (3) energy supply in an industrial or commercial setting. The instructor - with over 30 years of industry experience, focuses on the more common forms of energy, such as electrical, compressed air, natural gas, steam, and heat. He covers the various ways of reducing energy costs through well planned, specific, and results-oriented projects. He shows how to achieve substantial energy cost reduction with little or no capital investment and how to pursue projects in collaboration with local utility companies.
Learning Objectives & Take–Aways
- Apply principles and concepts associated with common forms of energy (electric, hydrocarbon, compressed air, steam, stack heat, etc.) to assess the energy intensity and energy productivity differences between alternative manufacturing and process systems, with a clear understanding of the physics and engineering fundamentals of energy in its various forms.
- Understand and apply energy engineering metrics associated with different forms of energy to quantify.
- Learn how to find out much energy is being consumed and how efficiently energy is being utilized in operations and facilities of various types.
- Identify, evaluate, and implement high-value energy conservation opportunities based on energy facts, energy engineering principles, application of SCADA, Supervisory Controls and Data Acquisition, type Energy Management Systems (EMS).
- Understand how to develop architecture and design of EMS systems for specific energy measurement, real-time monitoring – and in some cases – energy conservation-related control applications.
- Apply proven energy engineering and equipment sustainability best practices that can minimize overall energy intensity and enhance equipment durability.
- Apply Power Factor and Load Factor improvement engineering principles and methods to enhances electrical power quality, electrical energy productivity and electrical equipment sustainability. Calculation of power factor and load factor will be illustrated in addition to quantification of the benefits realized through these efforts.
- Distinguish between high efficacy and low efficacy lighting systems on the basis of watts/lumen or watts/foot-candle and apply coefficient of utilization approach in the design and specification of facility illumination systems – all, ultimately precipitating in lower overall energy intensity.
- Apply proven best practices for HVAC systems to achieve optimal HVAC system operation and higher energy productivity.
- Apply proven best practices in the operation and maintenance of compressed air systems to maximize their utilization and to minimize energy intensity associated with compressed air generation, distribution, and consumption.
- Learn the myths associated with electricity and gas contracts.
- Learn about the latest energy audits tools you need for energy conservation.
- Energy Basics and its Various Forms. Energy Facts and Statistics
- Electricity Basics and Electrical Rate Schedules
- EMS/BMS, Energy Monitoring and Building Monitoring Systems
- Power Factor Correction
- Energy Conservation in Lighting
- Energy Conservation in HVAC Systems, Steam Systems and Compressed Air Systems
- Energy Audits
- Energy Conservation Tips; "The Low Hanging Fruit"
- Financial Justification and Implementation of Energy Projects
