    • The Economics and Corporate Culture of Energy Conservation 

      Gilbert, J. S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      It seems that we have all struggled to convince management to pursue energy conservation using economic arguments, only to find that when all is said and done there is something else that gets certain projects approved. ...
    • Energy Accounting in Shared Savings Programs 

      Cherry, P. R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      As shared savings programs have become an increasingly popular way of funding energy conservation measures, several techniques have been devised to calculate the rate of return for both owner and investor. Energy consumption ...
    • Energy Conservation in the Bell System 

      Williamson, J. W. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      The Bell System provides numerous examples of ways in which demand for energy may be reduced, resulting in conservation of resources and preservation of the environment. The System's telecommunications network links ...
    • Energy Conservation Project Evaluation by Investment Equivalents 

      Larson, R. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Using discounted cash flow techniques, a new parameter for the quick economic evaluation of energy conservation ideas is calculated. The meaning of the calculated value, an 'Investment Equivalent of Energy Saving', is: ...
    • Energy Economics and Corporate Profitability 

      Gilbert, J. S. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1982)
      Are the short payback projects the best investments for your corporation? Not necessarily so, especially if your firm normally requires large capital outlays and has historically experienced poor margins. Surprisingly, ...
    • Energy Efficient Refinery Process Developed with U.S. D.O.E. Support 

      Mings, W. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      The United States Department of Energy historically has encouraged private efforts to develop energy saving technologies. EG&G Idaho, Inc., as the prime operating contractor at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, ...
    • Financing Energy Projects in DOW 

      Dingwall, D. C. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1984)
      Energy conservation as a formal program in Dow originated in the early 1970's. From 1972 until the end of 1983, DOW recorded an energy performance improvement in excess of 30%. The essential features of the energy conservation ...
    • Leasing - An Innovative Way to Finance Energy Conservation Improvements 

      Day, G. C. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      Leasing represents an attractive method of raising 100% of the cost of capital goods and equipment and of obtaining the use of capital goods and equipment over long periods of time for relatively low periodic payments. ...
    • Selling Energy Conservation Projects to Top Management 

      Jonsson, K. A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 1983)
      A guide to presenting proposals on Energy Conservation Projects by plant engineers to their top level management, in order to get approval for Energy Conservation Projects. Through the author's past experience he ascertained ...
    • Shortcuts to Financial Analysis 

      Larson, R. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1985-05)
      Energy conservation projects are not "by definition" attractive business ventures. They usually require capital investment for implementation. Therefore, they must compete for scarce capital funds with all other proposals ...
    • A Summary of the Experience of Two Mexican Industrial Energy Centers 

      Paroby, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1999-05)
      In 1995, the United States Department of Energy (DOE) began a program in Mexico to promote energy efficient products and services. Faculty and students at two universities were trained to perform assessments to identi ...
    • Upgrade Your Refinery for Energy Conservation
