Combined heat and power systems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and thermal energy in a single, integrated system. Heat that is normally wasted in conventional power generation is recovered as useful energy. While the conventional method of producing usable heat and power separately has a typical combined efficiency of 45%, CHP systems can operate at levels as high as 80%.
Improving compressed air efficiency is generally the best opportunity industrial companies have to make a significant and immediate impact on their electric bill.
An Energy Management System automatically turns off equipment when it is not needed. Advances in technology have made these systems cost-effective for facilities of all sizes.
Improvements in heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment and systems can not only reduce energy usage and costs but can also significantly improve comfort and improve worker productivity.
By upgrading lighting, owners can improve the economics of their buildings while enhancing the visual comfort and productivity of occupants.
Variable speed drives reduce energy consumption by operating at speeds that vary based on changing loads. Savings from variable speed drives increases as loads decrease.
Energy is a significant, controllable expense for most manufacturers, and energy efficiency is a direct way to reduce costs while limiting greenhouse gas emissions.
Today’s vending machines incorporate more efficient compressors, fan motors, and lighting systems to keep beverages cold and the machine visible while using less energy.
