7 Save Energy Reduce Waste Improve Productivity Train next generation of Energy Engineers Energy Program Objectives


9 Assessment Process

10 ; Preliminary Information & Consultation Onsite Preliminary Energy Diagnostic Survey (PEDS) Identification of areas for Potential Savings Targeted System Survey Survey of Existing Equipment Measurement & Data Gathering Interview O&M personnel Identification of opportunities Savings and Cost Analysis Report Client Review of Report

11 Assessment Process ; Data Analysis & Reporting ROI, simple payback, life cycle costing Cost to benefit analysis, NPV, IRR Full report delivered Implementation Follow-up & Additional Assistance Follow-up calls and assistance Continued assistance as needed

12 The purpose of a Preliminary Energy Diagnostics Survey (PEDS) is to evaluate plant operations from an energy perspective, to identify and prioritize energy saving opportunities, and to recommend targeted energy surveys for equipment that offer the greatest potential for energy savings. Purpose of a Preliminary Energy Diagnostics Survey

13 Boilers Lighting Compressed Air HVAC Systems Chillers and Cooling Towers Motors & Pumps Preventative Maintenance Steam Systems & Steam Traps Process energy systems Systems targeted during a Preliminary Energy Diagnostics Survey

14 Typical Information gathered in a Preliminary Energy Study Air Compressors and Air Dryers There are 3 air compressors. There is one common air dryer. Compressors: Manufacturer:Ingersoll-Rand Model:SSRXFE200-25 Serial: FF1274U97151 Type:Rotary screw Horsepower:200 hp Rating:1,100 cfm Operation:116 – 125 psig

15 Chillers There is one water cooled chiller: Manufacturer:Carrier Model:30HXC106R--661KA Serial:2307Q07525 Service:Cooling water for molds Operation:Setpoint is 48° F

16 Electrical Use and Cost for an Industrial Facility – Data collected for a Preliminary Energy Study

17 Water & Sewer Use and Cost for an Industrial Facility Data collected for a Preliminary Energy Study


19 Summary of Recommendations: The NCSU Energy Management Program (EMP) recommends the following: Compressed Air Study Convert T12 task lighting to T8. Explore the possibility of replacing the 8 ft. T12 fixtures with single fixtures containing two 4 ft. T8 lamps. Consider a Chiller and Cooling Tower Study. Consider a Motor Study

20 Lighting Surveys



23 Information Collected during a Lighting Survey Fixture quantities by type Fixture Wattage Lighting level in Footcandles Maintenance issues Electrical Rates

24 Table 1. Savings and Payback for Recommendations 1 & 2 Table 2. Savings and Payback with Utility Incentives Savings and Cost Summary from a Lighting Report

25 Compressed Air Surveys

26 Industrial Air Compressors



29 Typical Savings from a Compressed Air Survey

30 Load Monitoring and Recommendations from a Compressed Air Study

31 Boiler Surveys Flue Gas Analysis O 2, CO, CO 2 Stack Efficiency Operating/Maintenance Issues Dirty Heat Exchange surfaces Scanner failure Temperature control

32 Hot Water Boilers in a School

33 Industrial Low Pressure Steam Boilers





38 At your next boiler tuneup, discuss the relatively high excess air level on Boiler No. 2 at low fire to determine if the air/fuel ratio can be leaner at low fire. Boiler No. 1 currently operates more efficiently at low fire than Boiler No. 2 (this may be corrected after burner tune-ups have been performed). Consequently, Boiler No. 1 should be operated when low fire operation is required. Tune boilers to operate most efficiently at the firing level where they operate most frequently. Install stack thermometers in the stack to monitor flue gas temeperature. Use portable flue gas analyzer to measure O2 in flue gas every 6 months (at typical operating loads). Install gas meters on the individual boilers and track individual boiler fuel usage on a monthly basis. Consider reducing steam pressure. Lower pressure in 5 psi increments and allow boiler to operate at the reduced level for several days to determine if the system operates acceptably. Consider installing economizers to heat boiler feedwater.

59 2005 IAC Assessment $250,000 annual savings $560,000 implementation cost, 2.3 year payback Recession activity Company grew market share due to greater efficiency Company expanded into new world markets as others retracted Some recommendations applied corporately Additional $920,000 worldwide savings Local plant expanded New product line added New line and 50 new jobs without incentive

60 Campus Greenhouses Detailed lighting survey $112k implementation cost $38k leveraged incentives $17k annual energy savings 4.4 year simple payback Maintenance savings further shorten payback Boiler tuning Boiler was short cycling Helping NC Bottom Line Currently working with: School districts Community Colleges Military facilities Cities Counties Towns

61 Saving Energy Comprehensive and targeted surveys Demand Side Management (DSM) Energy bill analysis Reducing Waste and Pollution Landfill and water issues Carbon footprint calculation

62 Additional Technical Assistance Strategic Energy Planning Assistance with proposals Measurement & Verification Improving Productivity Process and systems review Additional resources (IES)
