Energy Efficient Utilities Management

Course Overview

Effective utility management protects your profits. It also protects the environment, through the most efficient and economic use of electricity, water, compressed air, steam, gas and oil on your site.

In contrast, the impact of poor utility management is far reaching. It can:

  • Cost you money
  • Lead to wastage
  • Compromise site safety
  • Potentially reduce equipment reliability, resulting in costly and unexpected down time

Course Objectives & Benefits

Learning objectives

  • To gain a top level understanding of a range of industrial utilities
  • To gain an understanding of the drivers of energy efficiency in industrial utilities
  • To understand how to gather & interpret data on utility operation & performance
  • To gain an insight into some energy reduction strategies that can be implemented on your site

Benefits of attending this course? 

  • Improve output of utilities plant - when output can be maximised you get the most out your investment
  • Improve energy efficiency - continuously monitor the fuel
  • inputs and utility outputs to optimise energy efficiency and utilities operation
  • Improve availability/reliability - ensure utilities plant can continue generating energy through any process or external disturbances
  • Maximise asset life - get the most out your investment
  • Minimise maintenance costs - by using available data collection to determine when maintenance actually needs to be undertaken
