Cutting Costs With Energy AuditingThis articles comes from Reliable Plant magazine. Paul Twite of 24-7 Power, an electrical consulting and engineering service company, describes how he helps companies become more energy efficient.
"Twite uses a three-step approach to help a company lower its energy bills. With the right tools and knowledge, your company can follow the same process using your own personnel. Here’s how it works:"
Step 1: Energy accounting
Step 2: Analysis and identifying problems
Step 3: Proposing and prioritizing solutions
This is how Twite describes step 1: "This step consists of three parts: 1) reviewing utility bills, 2) using thermal imagers to scan the electrical, mechanical, process and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning) systems as well as the building envelope (everything that separates the interior of a building from the outdoor environment) and 3) monitoring for power consumption, power quality, power factor and other relevant aspects of energy use."
