Energy Conservation at Westinghouse R&D
MetadataShow full item record
Presented herein is the history of 'Energy Conservation at the Westinghouse R&D Center' from the time of the OPEC crisis to the present and forecasts of our intended programs for the next few years. The energy and fuel saved from 1973 to 1977 are credited to the Westinghouse Corporate Task Force recommendations and to our own informal conservation programs. The natural gas shortages of early 1977 and the national coal strike of early 1978 resulted in extreme gas and electric energy savings but not without some loss of comfort and research. More modest savings are attributed to the computerized Energy Management System consisting of a central Westinghouse 2515 Minicomputer Control Center and five (5) remote NumaLogic Microprocessors - but without loss to comfort or to research. This report also presents an economic analysis of the investment in the current R&D installation of a waste heat recovery system with TEMPLIFIER heat pumps. Some current projects such as a new boiler-burner, dual fueled, with oxygen sensor controller added - and a new insulated glass system 'piggy-backed' on existing window panes - are also presented.
