Energy Management Systems for the Food Manufacturing Industry

  1. 1. Energy & Utility Management<br />Information Solutions for the Food Manufacturing Industry<br />Leveraging Information Technology to Create Profitable, Sustainable<br />and Socially Responsible Systems for a Better Tomorrow<br />
  2. 2. Today’s Energy: Quick Hits<br /><ul><li>Skyrocketing energy consumption:
  3. 3. World consumption is up 45% since 1980
  4. 4. Expected to increase by 70% by 2030 and double by 2050
  5. 5. Emerging markets claim more than 75% of new demand
  6. 6. CO2 emissions up by 33% since the industrialrevolution
  7. 7. Price will only increase:</li></ul>Increasing demand from emerging countries<br />Natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, Gulf of Mexico oil spill, etc.<br />Political instability and Middle East geo-political tensions<br />
  8. 8. The Industrial Sectors Contribution<br />Transportation – 27%<br />Industry – 49%<br />(including industrial buildings)<br />Tertiary Building – 8%<br />Residential – 16%<br />Main sources of industrial energy consumption are heating and cooling, motors, lighting and compressed air<br />
  9. 9. The 30% Energy<br />Reduction Challenge<br />Reduce your companies energy consumption by 30% over a five year period<br />
  10. 10. Meeting the 30% Challenge<br />Short- and long-term energy reduction goals:<br />10 – 15% energy consumption reduction in the first year<br />15 – 20% energy cost savings within the first year<br />30%energy consumption reduction over 5 years<br />Achieving a 30% energy consumption reduction:<br />Achieve 10 – 15% savings by using high efficiency equipment, sizing equipment correctly, upgrading building envelope and insulation<br />Achieve 5 – 15%savings by turning off or idling equipment when not needed, regulating motors and heating at optimal levels<br />Achieve 2 – 8% through a continual measurement & targeting program and immediate reaction to consumption deviations<br />
  11. 11. … but keep an eye out for:<br />Common pitfalls of an energy management strategy:<br />Paralysis through analysis – there are many movingparts to an energy management strategy, start smalland constantly review and revise<br />Unplanned or unmanaged shutdowns will adverselyaffect your energy consumption<br />Ensure that your energy management strategy doesnot adversely affect your production throughput orquality<br />Embrace automation – as processing equipment isreplaced or upgraded it should be integrated to your energy management system<br />Keep momentum on the project – it might take a while to gain traction on some measures<br />
  12. 12. Possible Energy & Cost Reduction<br />Achieved through high efficiency devices and use optimization<br />100%<br />70%<br />Achieved through continual monitoring and deviation corrections<br />Energy<br />Consumption<br />1<br />2<br />3<br />4<br />5<br />Time<br />
  13. 13. Environmental Impact<br />Reduce your companies environmental footprint<br />Use this socially responsible commitment to sustainability as a selling point to your customers<br />Reduce greenhouse gas emissions<br />Reduce carbon dioxide emissions by millions ofpounds per year<br />Reduce poisonous chemical emissions<br />Reduce mercury, nitrous oxide and sulfur dioxideemissions by thousands of pounds per year<br />
  14. 14. 4 Simple Steps<br />Review your facility and identify areas of opportunity<br />Install an energy management system to measure the impact of your efforts<br />Implement improvements and measure their impact<br />Continually monitor and improve the system<br />
  15. 15. Let Us Help<br />Let us bring our knowledge and experience to your project<br />for immediate and impactful results<br />
  16. 16. A Process With Proven Results<br />Our approach has been tested and refined over time to deliver immediate and impactful results<br />Our process:<br />Perform a thorough site assessment of your facility<br />Install and configure an energy managementinformation system<br />Implement energy and cost savings measures<br />Continually monitor and improve energy consumption<br />
  17. 17. Site Audit<br />A small team of experienced industrial engineers will visit your facility for a day or two to review the building envelope and insulation, processing equipment and building systems, production processes and more<br />We will prepare and submit a comprehensive audit report including a list of recommended measures for energy and cost savings<br />We will present our findings and recommendations to your plant management or corporate team<br />
  18. 18. Energy Management System<br />Install a network of energy consumption measurement devices<br />Configure energy analysis software with comprehensive dashboards, reporting, alerting and analytic tools<br />Establish a baseline and measure the true impact of changes<br />
  19. 19. EMS Architecture<br />Building Data<br />Processing<br />Equipment<br />Data<br />Reporting & alerting<br />delivered to your<br />management team<br />External<br />Weather &<br />Humidity<br />Data<br />Energy Management<br />Information Software<br />Production<br />Data<br />Analysis from our expert energy analysts<br />
  20. 20. Implement Recommended Measures<br />Improve building envelope and insulation<br />Install high efficiency and correctly sizeddevices<br />Provide feedback control for runningprocessing equipment at levels consistent with production<br />
  21. 21. Monitor and Improve<br />Collect current energy consumption data<br />Measure impact to ensure expected results are achieved<br />Analyze the data and identify improvement measures<br />Implement improvement measures<br />
  22. 22. Your Experienced Energy Analyst<br />Let our experienced and knowledgeable energy analysts help you understand your plants energy signature and relate it to your production processes<br />We bring insightful recommendations based on industry best-practices<br />
