¿Cómo detectar oportunidades de ahorro de energía?
The best way to detect energy-saving alternatives is to detect where is the energy waste to look for energy efficient consumption rates in each industry?
We can identify 2 types of efficiencies.
We can identify 3 types of energy and money savings:
- Equipment efficiency. Lower consumption per time
- Process efficiency. Lower consumption per unit
- Improved prices. Lower prices.
In general, the largest amounts of energy consumed are in the combustion processes. A failure in the combustion mixtures represents an opportunity for savings, however, many times it also represents higher emissions of polluting gases.
Fortunately, today the monitoring technology allows to ensure a perfect compustion, making the most of the energy contained in the fuel and reducing polluting emissions.
Efficiency in processes
In general, all processes require the availability of resources: human, technology (equipment) and materials. Again, technology gives a hand in improving productivity; first to detect downtime in each resource, detects quality problems that produce rework, controls the rhythms or production speeds.
Additionally, it not only detects but can also act to increase productivity.
Negotiation of energy purchase
The purchase of electricity, natural gas or any other fuel is developed in a competitive market. Few know about the opportunities that this market offers. Many times it is thought that the electric company is only one; however, few know that this monopoly is only in the networks, but in the purchase and sale of energy there is a large market. Where competition is not only for customers, but to get energy from many sources.
In this scenario, solar energy has been an important source of competition for markets and a savings opportunity for consumers.
