The Energy Waste Sensei — Manufacturers’ Top 3 Areas to Look for Energy Saving Opportunities

Previously from the Energy Waste Sensei: We introduced the idea of looking beyond hardware for solutions to your energy consumption challenges. Now let’s explore operations in a new light: Here are Sensei Bruce's top 3 places to look to identify energy waste! Reducing Operations Costs, Especially from Energy In operations, there are three major cost pieces … Continue reading The Energy Waste Sensei — Manufacturers’ Top 3 Areas to Look for Energy Saving Opportunities

The Energy Waste Sensei — To Battery or Not to Battery

My last blog post touched on how phase change materials (PCM) can provide exceptional energy savings both in cooling and heating. The driver, of course, stems from our discussion regarding our energy profile (shown below), and what we can do to reduce and/or shift energy consumption during peak times. In today’s lesson, we will explore … Continue reading The Energy Waste Sensei — To Battery or Not to Battery

The Energy Waste Sensei — Peak Shifting Strategy, Part 1

In this week's previous Energy Waste Sensei post, Sensei Bruce demonstrated how to break down data analysis to provide a clearer view of your energy profile and he explained how to plan and take action. Next, in this first of a two-part blog post, you’ll learn how to shift your energy profile to reduce energy consumption … Continue reading The Energy Waste Sensei — Peak Shifting Strategy, Part 1

The Energy Waste Sensei — Understanding Your Energy Profile, What Your Data is Telling You, and What You Should Do Next

In the previous Energy Waste Sensei post, I, Sensei Bruce provided an overview of Global Adjustment (GA) and how classifications A (peak demand driven) and B (hourly consumption driven) dictate how you are charged. Knowing this will help us build upon our strategy of eliminating energy waste as you will learn today. Data for 20/20 … Continue reading The Energy Waste Sensei — Understanding Your Energy Profile, What Your Data is Telling You, and What You Should Do Next
