Energy Evaluation and Management in the Industrial Setting
MetadataShow full item record
In any dynamic, quickly evolving professional specialty, such as the specialized field of energy evaluation and management, the characteristic explosion in new information, innovation, lessons learned, refinements in methodology, heightened effectiveness and improved results is invariably accompanied by a corresponding widespread, but very natural, phenomenon. The specialty begins to be treated, in practice, as if it were totally matured, as if few breakthroughs were occurring. Complacency in the actual field practice of the specialty sets in. What should be a dynamic exercise and process starts to be practiced in an uninspired, undemanding, methodical manner, as if the act of the specialty, itself, was somehow magical, that full achievement of its purpose was guaranteed simply by mechanically walking through its process. A presentation outlining a scientific approach to energy evaluation and management--uncovering some of the pitfalls, lessons learned, refinements in methodology, interrelationships in problem solving, necessary dynamics and examples of new information and innovations - should help out not only avoid the setting in of scientific lethargy and the often-expensive mistakes that can ignite, but it will also help optimize the benefits of a thoroughly successful Energy Evaluation and Management program.
