  6. 6. ENERGY EFFICIENCY: The MOST IMPORTANT SINGLE SOURCE OF THE PRESENTAND FUTURE ENERGY DEMAND!___________________________________________Most companies are now in the cost-cutting business. One of the best, if not the bestapproach to successful cost-cutting is for the corporate top management to have a seriouscommitment and policy of Energy Efficiency Improvements in their offices, vehicle fleet,factories, and buildings, and facilities. Instead of laying off workers for cost-cutting,management can "layoff" energy wastage and utilize a higher energy efficiency. Theefficiency of every energy system and component can be improved. This is a fact. And it isbest for every business person to have this kind of mindset.In view of the rising energy costs, declining energy supply, and the destructive effects ofClimate Change/Global Warming, the need to increase Energy Efficiency is of greatimportance nowadays. Waste energy in the form of heat, carbon monoxide, incompletecombustion, smoke, plus the Greenhouse Gas emissions (CO2), etc., destroy ourenvironment due to the phenomenon of Global Warming. If we dont take corrective actionsnow, our inefficiencies and little concern for the environment will ultimately destroy ourbusinesses, the fruits of our labors, and finally destroy our very own lives!Another thing is that the Design, Operation, and Maintenance decisions made several yearsago, now need reevaluation and change. Your business profitability, if not its very survival, isnow threatened by the escalating energy and operating costs. Gone are the years of cheapenergy. Unfortunately, old buildings and plants, industrial machinery and processes, whichare designed for cheap energy, are still being used today. Even new plants and machinerycan be a source of waste energy, if not given sound engineering design, care, and attention.Fortunately, there are many ways to save energy.HOW TO FACE THE STRONG PRESSURE TO REDUCE PRODUCTION COSTSAND GREENHOUSE GASES EMISSION_________________________________Plant Managers, Property Managers, Facility Managers and other key leaders oforganizations are now faced with great pressure to reduce their operating costs just to stay inbusiness. The risks of not doing so are more serious to the survival of their businesses andthe properties they manage or own. One major component of the business process that isvery often not fully understood, and is bypassed as important solution to the crises today isthat of the MAINTENANCE function. ENERGY OPTIMA will help these executives achievethe needed profitable cost-cutting, not only through the maintenance function, but also intheir operations management.OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE SERVICESMAINTENANCE EXCELLENCEOnce the Building is up and running, the efficient PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE methodologymust be applied. With this approach about 30 percent of the projected greenhouse gasemissions in the building sector can be avoided with net economic benefit.COLUMNA ENERGY OPTIMA 6
  7. 7. Via MAINTENANCE EXCELLENCE 1. Use PREVENTIVE/PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE methodologies with PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE goal in mind. 2. Conduct ROOT-CAUSE FAILURE ANALYSIS (RCFA) for all failures encountered. 3. Provide continuous refresher and up-to-date MAINTENANCE AND TECHNICAL TRAINING to all personnel concerned. 4. Implement TPM (Total Productive Maintenance) for all the machine operators. 5. Develop/Implement up-to-date MAINTENANCE TASK PROCEDURES, FORMS, and CHECKLISTS for all facilities and machinery. 6. Use CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) to document all maintenance and repair activities. 7. Energy Systems Redesign/Retrofit for Efficiency Improvements.In addition to the energy cost savings and reduced emission of greenhouse gases, ENERGYOPTIMA method provides several less tangible financial benefits. Recent studies have linkedenergy management to stock market performance. Management teams who are successfulat grappling with the complexities of energy and environmental management tend to alsohave the internal capacity needed to safeguard the overall financial health of a company.OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCEAligning strategy with systems and process to improve operational efficiency andeffectiveness. Transforming the enterprise through performance improvement.Laying the foundation for a reliable, sustainable energy futureWorking from an in-depth knowledge of and experience with industry-specific keyperformance indicators (KPI), we help clients identify and align strategies, business models,systems, asset management, people and processes—all to achieve higher levels of assetefficiency, organizational effectiveness and operational excellence. Our managementconsulting and technical services help clients to lay the foundation for a reliable, sustainablefuture--covering all aspects of energy and utility industry performance improvement needs.COLUMNA ENERGY OPTIMA 7
  8. 8. The burning of fossil fuels is the main CO2 contributor to the atmosphere. Fortunately, arange of options exists to attempt to mitigate the amount of CO2 and other greenhousegases emitted into the atmosphere. First and foremost is simply using energy wisely -- calledEnergy Efficiency. The most benefit with the least cost would come from energy efficiencyimprovements. We must develop both the short-term and long-term solutions to theEnergy-Climate crises. We have to reduce and even reverse the increase in globalemissions. The best way to do this is to involve as many sectors as possible.For example, we must target and call for more "EFFICIENT BUILDINGS." For new buildings,this should start from energy-efficient design and construction, which include: properinsulation, efficient heating/cooling/ventilation, efficient appliances and plug loads that havereduced standby losses, etc.NEEDED: TOTAL AND INTEGRATED SYSTEMS ENERGY-SAVING METHODOLOGYIt would be a big mistake to approach energy saving from a compartmentalized approach.Successful energy savings must be done with the relevant knowledge of the many factorsand engineering disciplines that are involved in the interconnections of the energy systems inbuildings, factories, power plants, and their associated facilities and auxiliaries. Unless thesefactors are known and used to reduce the energy use of the whole systems, it is possible toreduce energy in one place, only to find that it has increased somewhere else. Without the"WHOLE PICTURE" or integrated systems approach, changes made may result inachievement far short of the potential, or they may actually do more harm than good.There is danger of dealing only with a lighting expert, or only with an air-conditioning expert,or only with a specialist for an isolated manufacturing process. Modification of one part of asystem generally affects other parts of the system, or other systems. The main idea here isto KEEP AN OVERALL PERSPECTIVE and NOT to focus only on 1 piece of equipment, notto focus on only 1 energy system, not to focus on only 1 aspect of a building or plant.To best apply this method, one must first understand the function and the “HOW IT WORKS”principles of each piece of equipment, how energy is used, and the effects of climate andother factors. With these systems approach, improvements are integrated with the wholesystems.NEEDED: A DEDICATED AND MOTIVATED GROUP OF EFFICIENCY EXPERTSFor Energy Efficiency Improvements to be successful, there must be a continuous thoughtfulplanning, monitoring, and implementation of energy efficiency strategies in various industriesand companies. These require a dedicated group of experts to continuously analyze,monitor, and seek for efficiency opportunities. This expert efficiency group must haveANALYTICAL MINDS with the latest technical know-how, as well as, the modern testinginstruments and devices to perform tests and analysis.So, to have more realistic and profitable energy-efficiency improvements, the following arerequired: motivated personnel, relevant professional knowledge and skills, complete set ofnecessary measuring/testing instruments, abundant funds, etc. The most important of all therequirements is the willingness and commitment of the people concerned to achieve themaximum possible by making effective use of whatever facilities and resources are available.COLUMNA ENERGY OPTIMA 8
  9. 9. However, the problem with this is that there are very few companies and experts in thecountry that are fully equipped with those requirements. This is a fact that forced mostcompanies to make desperate efforts to conduct their own energy efficiency improvementprograms under inadequate circumstances. ENERGY OPTIMA was invented to fill in the gap,providing energy efficiency services to the government, commerce, and industry. ENERGYOPTIMA will provide a WHOLE SYSTEMS INTEGRATION approach in handling your energyconservation and efficiency improvement programs.ENERGY OPTIMA efficiently manages both the Human Factor (the "software") and theTechnology Factor (the hardware) to achieve the minimum energy consumption possible formaximum production and environmental preservation. Thus, ENERGY OPTIMA is a newapproach to energy-efficiency management, which is done STEP-BY-STEP considering allconnected energy systems.ENERGY EFFICIENCY AS A PROFIT CENTER, SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, ANDSOLUTION TO GLOBAL WARMING_____________________________________Energy Efficiency Improvement Programs cost money. But the lack of Energy EfficiencyPrograms also costs money. The only difference is that money spent on energy efficiencyimprovements can be recovered in a very short time, plus the bonus of an additional largeamount of money (net) that can be considered profit.Even then, there are operational and maintenance changes that can be made at LOW COSTor NO COST at all. This is the strength of ENERGY OPTIMA. The potential for costreduction for the business owner is so large and so quickly accomplished that energyefficiency improvements should be given high priority. And because efficiency programsprevent or reduce environmental pollution, your company can projects good image and socialconcern for the community and neighborhood. Therefore, Energy Efficiency Improvementsshould be one of corporate social responsibility. Funding and budget allocation for EfficiencyImprovements is therefore, a wise and profitable corporate investment.LACK OF EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM COSTS LARGE SUMS OF MONEYAND ONE OF THE MAJOR CAUSES OF CLIMATE CHANGE_______________________On the other hand, lack of efficiency program will cost large sums of money spent on thehigh bills on maintenance, manpower, materials (spare parts, chemicals, etc.), and energybills (fuel oil, water, electricity). Lack of efficiency program can also result in a huge loss ofprofits through loss of productivity, poor product quality, accidents, etc. And these hugelosses cannot be recovered, literally going with the wind. Worse, you also help pollute theenvironment, and increase Global Warming.ENERGY OPTIMA HELPS YOUR BUSINESS, AS IT SOLVES THE TRIPLE CRISES OFENERGY, ECONOMICS, AND CLIMATE CHANGE!______________________________As an effective solution to face the ENERGY-CLIMATE CHALLENGE, as well as, to helpimprove the profitability of businesses and industries, COLUMNA ENERGY is now offering itsexpertise, technologies, and services via the ENERGY OPTIMA method. This is to assistcorporations in the development, implementation, and management of their EnergyManagement and Efficiency Improvement Programs. With the ENERGY OPTIMACOLUMNA ENERGY OPTIMA 9
  10. 10. methodology, the energy management of existing plants and building systems can beefficiently managed by COLUMNA ENERGY. ENERGY OPTIMA can be applied both to theexisting buildings, plants, and facilities, and to the efficient design and construction of newbuildings and plants.RATIONALEFrom the Supply SideThe energy and utility industry faces profound and unpredictable change over the comingdecades. Deregulation, unbundling, greenhouse gas (GHG) regulation, renewable resources,distributed generation, expense and capital cost containment, increased efforts for energyefficiency, demand side management, with smart grid and advanced metering as emergingenablers—and primary drivers—of significant change. Add to this the prospect of a majorshift to an electric-fueled transportation sector, and the utility of tomorrow will be completelytransformed.From the Demand Side"If controlling global warming is a priority, then industries—from banking to cementmanufacturing—will have to become efficient energy users, which will require atransformation of their basic management and operations.""As economic conditions continue to deteriorate, companies must find opportunitiesnot only to preserve and uncover profits, but to do so without major capitalexpenditures. To accomplish this, they must GO BACK TO THE BASICS OF RUNNINGEFFICIENT PLANTS."Its simple. When your plant or building is wasting energy, you are losing money. And you arealso contributing to the increase of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, worsening GlobalWarming.LOST ENERGY -- for whatever reason -- is a lost profit, and a gain for Global Warming.And because of these, you can even lose your business.Now comes ENERGY OPTIMA to the rescue. From COLUMNA ENERGY. Commerce andindustry, even the National Government will find ENERGY OPTIMA very helpful in planningand executing their in-house energy management programs directed at lowering theiroperating costs.ENERGY OPTIMA: THE TIME HAS COME TO FACE THE ENERGY-CLIMATECHALLENGE____________________________________________________How well an organization performs against a changing energy landscape depends on howwell the gaps between today’s reality and tomorrow’s targets are anticipated, identified andclosed.
