Description

This module has been designed to be a useful resource for industrial energy managers bringing utilities and systems in line with energy and carbon allowances while maximising efficiency of the plant.  Also contains energy savings information tailored to industries or focused on specific plant utility and process improvements. Building and process energy will be examined with a view to streamlining and improving energy consumption.  Energy efficient design of plant facilities and manufacturing equipment and communicate the message of energy efficiency to your employees and others.
