Electrical and thermal energy represent substantial operating costs to plants. Increasing power and fuel costs make it critical to boost energy efficiency and lower energy costs, especially since those savings go directly to the bottom line. This panel discussion, provides guidance on how plants can improve energy efficiency and optimize use of energy resources such as:
- - Compressed air systems and the energy costs associated with running a compressed air system
- - The impact poor performing systems have on energy consumption
- - Strategies for developing energy cost savings methodologies
- - The role sensors play in identifying and managing energy cost control opportunities
- - Steam traps, monitoring performance and the role that it plays in ensuring energy efficiency operations
