Energy Analysis and Diagnostics Data Analysis From Industrial Energy Assessments for Manufacturing Industries
MetadataShow full item record
The Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) at West Virginia University has been functioning since 1992. During this time, the center has performed over 100 industrial assessments for small and medium sized manufacturing plants. Significant data has been collected as a result of these assessments. Although waste minimization and productivity improvements have been recommended on some of these assessments in addition to energy savings, this paper focuses on energy analysis and diagnostics information. The data shows the types of industries in our geographical area which have benefited from the industrial assessments and outlines the relationships between these industry types and variables such as energy consumption, types of recommendations, sales, plant size, and implementation status. The paper discusses some key findings with respect to the data analysis performed.
