    • Energy Conservation in the Bell System 

      Del Grande, M. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1979)
      In December 1973, the Bell System launched a comprehensive energy conservation program which includes immediate, intermediate, and long range steps. A computerized data base system was developed to permit monthly input of ...
    • Energy Conservation Management Can Pay For Itself 

      McCall, R.; Bickle, L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      With proper management of energy conservation programs, any structure can be energy efficient. And this energy efficiency need not require great expenditures. A 'systems approach' to energy management identifies a series ...
    • Energy Management and Computers in the Pulp and Paper Industry 

      Sommerfeld, J. T.; Hartley, E. M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1981)
      This paper reports on various energy conservation programs which have recently been implemented in the pulp and paper industry. A number of specific energy conservation measures are described. Also, applications of computers ...
    • The Energy Tracker 

      Ranzau, P. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1986-06)
      Since 1978, Houston Lighting & Power Company has been concerned with promoting the efficient use of energy. The guiding concept to the creation of conservation programs is the underlying responsibility to respond to ...
    • For Energy Conservation in Existing Plants - Start With a Good Process Survey 

      Krebs, N. R.; Castillo, R. O.; Malaty, W. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      As a result of the drastic increase in the cost of process plant utilities, many operating companies are actively pursuing programs to effect energy conservation in their existing plants. Some have taken action to reduce ...
    • Gaining Top Management Support for Energy Conservation Programs 

      Kenney, W. F. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Sometimes seemingly attractive energy conservation opportunities encounter road blocks by top management. Generally, this happens because the engineer is not working the whole problem as management sees it. Management may ...
    • Industrial Energy Audit Training for Engineers
