Optimal Life Cycle Cost Design for an Energy Efficient Manufacturing Facility
MetadataShow full item record
Over the past twelve years, Texas Instruments has developed extensive energy management programs that have enabled them to reduce energy usage by 42%. Typically, these reductions have been a result of the application of microprocessor based energy management systems in existing facilities. Because of the nature of the electronics industry, i .e., light manufacturing and the continued use of more energy intensive technologies, it has become economically advantageous to take a more active role in the architectural design of new facilities. The goal is to incorporate those energy conservation features into the design having the lowest lifecycle costs.
