Our Favorite Energy Management Opportunities: A Review of Over 150 Energy Audits of Industrial Firms
MetadataShow full item record
For five years the Oklahoma Industrial Energy Management Program at Oklahoma State University has been serving industry by offering energy audits and energy management conferences. To date, more than 50 conferences and 170 energy audits have been conducted. A data base has been constructed containing the results of the audits. On the average, the audits have identified savings of 15% of present energy costs and implementation rates are about 60%. (A recent job change is expanding these activities to Montana State University while those at Oklahoma State University will continue.) This paper examines the data base to pick out the "most popular EMO's." (Energy Management Opportunities) Popularity is determined by frequency of recommendation, savings, and implementation rates. Some breakdown by Standard Industrial Code will also be given. Emphasis is on detecting which ideas have potential for wide spread application. Therefore, attendees should see several ideas that are applicable to their plants.
