    • Beyond Back of the Envelope Savings Calculations 

      Griffiths, D. M.; Reid, L. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1997-04)
      This paper presents several approaches to economically estimate energy savings of conservation measures for a variety of end-uses and industries. These approaches have been developed primarily during the evaluation of ...
    • Do Small Companies Care About Energy Savings?: A Case Study 

      Agrawal, S.; Jensen, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1998-04)
      Often times small companies will ignore very obvious energy saving opportunities even if they know that correcting the problem might save them few dollars. Two cases are presented here which deals with the energy saving ...
    • Economic Impact of Control and Optimization on Industrial Utilities 

      Collins, D.; Lang, R. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1997-04)
      Industrial energy management includes the fuel procurement, production, conservation and efficient use of utilities such as steam, electricity, compressed air and water. Steam is the underpinning utility and has the greatest ...
