One of the major concerns faced by the world today is the depletion of conventional energy sources i.e. fossil fuels like coal, oil, and gases and their spiraling cost. In the long run it may pose a serious threat to the survival of an industrial unit and hence it is imperative to find alternate sources of energy as well as to conserve the existing resources and use them efficiently. As industries are major consumers of energy, following are a few tips for energy efficiency in industries.
Energy audits must be conducted by accredited energy auditors. This helps in calculating the total energy consumption and also in identifying areas where energy efficiency can be increased through various techniques and upgraded processes.
Energy managers must be appointed to look into matters related to energy consumption in the industrial unit and to find ways to improve energy efficiency.
