- Efficient Industrial Lighting
- Energy Management for Motors Systems
- Saving Energy in the Food Service Industry with ENERGY STAR
- Developing and Energy Plan
An energy-management plan is a great way to improve efficiency and encourage energy-saving behavior. In addition to cost savings, successful energy-management plans reduce greenhouse gas emissions, lower maintenance costs, improve workplace comfort and more. Topics to be discussed include the following:
- The elements of a seven-step energy plan
- Making the decision to hire or train an energy manager
- Financing an energy plan
- Energy-efficiency tools and resources
- Energy Management Opportunities for Industrial Customers
With energy costs on the rise, improving energy efficiency is on everyone’s mind. This webinar covers industrial energy efficiency basics including kW versus kWh, power factor and more. We also discuss end-use technologies to help you identify top energy efficiency opportunities and potential savings for each.
- Energy Auditing and Troubleshooting
This webinar will show you how to estimate energy consumption by end use without the need for submetering. We will focus on refrigeration, compressed air end uses, HVAC, lighting, and office equipment. In addition, you will receive audit checklists for energy conservation. Several third-party auditing tools will also be reviewed. Spend an hour attending this webinar and sharpen your energy IQ!
- Boiler and Chiller Maintenance for Maximum Efficiency
When it comes to boilers and chillers, did you know proactive maintenance routines help to achieve maximum fuel and electric efficiency over time? This webinar will identify proven maintenance practices, not only for boilers and combustion burners, but chiller compressors, evaporators/condensers (including cooling towers ), economizers, and air handlers.
- Compressed Air Energy Management
- Adjustable Speed Drives
In the right applications, adjustable speed drives (ASDs) offer great energy-saving potential from high power factor to improved speed control, soft-start capabilities, and more. This webinar will discuss how they work, the savings potential, best applications, sizing, and how to solve variable frequency drive (VFD) power-quality issues. Playback this one-hour webinar to learn:
- How VFDs work
- Their savings potential
- Best applications
- How to solve VFD power quality issues
- Advances in Lamps and Ballasts
A recent industry survey of over 100 lighting manufacturers identified the latest technologies in fluorescent and metal halide lamps and ballasts. Attend this webinar to learn more about recent advances in lighting, from extended T8/T5 lamp life, to cold weather lamps, NEMA Premium ballasts, reduced wattage and high-temperature high bay fluorescents, radio frequency lighting, LEDs, the latest advances in daylighting, occupancy sensors, and more.
- Energy Efficiency Investment Analysis
Do not let inadequate financial analysis stop a good project dead in its tracks.
As you purchase new, energy-efficient equipment in support of your energy plan, you will need to conduct a payback analysis to justify the investment. This webinar will discuss key financial concepts that lay the foundation for investment analysis, including: simple payback, time value of money, net present value, internal rate of return, and life-cycle cost analysis.
- Improve Power Factor at Your Facility
Find answers to common questions about this pesky power problem.
Discussions about power factor tend to evoke a lot of questions. This webinar will address a number those questions, including: What is power factor and how does it differ from load factor? What causes power factor and how do you improve it? What are the downsides to improving power factor? What is the cost of power factor correction?
Become more comfortable addressing power factor problems and learn of ways to decrease your power factor utility charge by attending this webinar.
