Last week in a post, Reducing Demand Charges in Energy Bills, we highlighted the opportunity for process manufacturers and producers to optimize energy costs. Today, we’ll look at how to better identify these opportunities for energy savings. Emerson’s Bill Thackston explained to me that even in these current times of low energy prices that it […]

Energy management information systems, such as Energy Advisor, can help spot, alert operators and report on energy overconsumption events. In this quick, 46 second YouTube video, Energy Advisor: Overconsumption Alerts, it shows how to identify and log root causes for energy over-consumption events. From this data, energy managers can review Pareto charts indicating the most […]

As energy prices slowly creep higher from earlier lows, the need for managing energy usage remains constant for most process manufacturers and producers. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy-Intensive Process Portfolio list processes in the refining, petrochemicals, chemicals, plastics metals, pulp & paper as large energy consumers. In an earlier post, Identifying Components then Optimizing […]

When optimizing operating costs at a production facility, the bias is toward that which can be measured. For example, the cost of chemicals additives for a process is something easily measured based upon the amount consumed. For components such as the energy to produce steam, the costs may not be so clear. Emerson’s Barbara Hamilton […]

Last week, we highlighted how energy savings could be achieved through better combustion. Today, let’s look at a way to manage energy consumption throughout a plant or production facility. In this 3:39 video, Energy Advisor from Emerson, Real-Time Energy Monitoring, Emerson’s Barbara Hamilton describes ways to uncover, realize, and document energy efficiency opportunities through the […]
