Are you interested in knowing how some industrial
companies have benefitted from exercising good energy management techniques? How energy savings of up to 40 percent can be
realized without capital investment? Would you like to know how to manage and motivate your staff to save energy? A new publication
available through Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) addresses these energy management issues and many more!
Energy Management in Industry looks at the experiences of companies from over ten different sectors ranging from
steel and glass to electronics and vehicle assembly. Examples of good practices have been drawn out of demonstration projects
from six countries. Companies of all sizes are featured; from 26 to over 16 000 employees on one site; with total energy costs
varying from between a few thousand dollars a year, to several million; from operating at a single facility, to across a chain
of over 600 sites.
Readers will learn how to develop an energy audit,
identify energy savings, obtain senior management support, monitor energy use, motivate staff to save energy, and develop
a training programme. Special emphasis is placed throughout on the "people-based" approach to energy management. Readers will
discover that while energy-efficiency technologies have a significant role to play in reducing industrial energy use, it is
just as important to ensure that employees are also using energy wisely.
