Precast concrete manufacturing is a competitive market and it is important to seek out any way to remain competitive and lower operational costs. One such way is to look at your energy consumption. An efficient program can reduce energy costs by 3% to 10% annually. Also, improving energy efficiency reduces waste and emissions. We’ll explain how to improve processes and develop energy management practices. This session will include information on how to enhance energy management by establishing goals and strategies that will maximize the return on investment and provide continuous improvement. Actual case studies will be spotlighted to show examples of modifications, upgrades and replacements that have reduced costs. What could be done to lighting, HVAC, air compressors and other equipment to lower energy consumption? This session will provide some tips on how to get started right away.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Identify the largest consumers of energy in a typical precast plant
- Explain how an external energy audit works
- Describe how to begin establishing an energy management system
- Identify three things to look at right now that could present opportunities for energy savings
