Energy Efficiency Solutions
Repair or replace inefficient systems… implement industrial energy efficiency solutions… reduce emissions… then maintain those savings!
It’s no secret that older, inefficient equipment typically uses more energy, generates more emissions and can be a barrier to maximum profitability. The difficulty is identifying which equipment across multiple plants will have the biggest impact, and quantifying the amount of improvement that could be achieved through repairs or replacements. Then there is the added challenge of making sure you actually realize and maintain those efficiency levels over time.
Our Industrial Energy Efficiency Solutions, the second step in the EPS Way, help you identify and achieve the greatest opportunities for enterprise-wide efficiency. We manage the entire project through to completion, ensuring you achieve the targeted results and maintain them on an ongoing basis. Our projects are implemented using a proven approach:
Phase I: Asset Assessment
Utilizing the information gathered by our xChange Point® energy management solution, we provide an initial evaluation of all your equipment and identify the industrial energy efficiency solutions and carbon reduction opportunities with the largest and fastest return.
Phase II: Project Design & Implementation
We design and manage your entire solution – identifying the best replacement option, procuring, installing and testing the new equipment. We monitor it with xChange Point and track your savings. We offer financing and navigate incentive and rebate programs on your behalf.
EPS starts by assessing the energy consumption and efficiency opportunities at your facilities. Our powerful xChange Point system gathers data from a wide range of energy and process equipment across your plants, including:
- Refrigeration systems
- Compressed air systems
- Boilers & steam generators
- HVAC and chiller systems
- Wastewater systems
- Evaporators and dryers
- Furnaces and ovens
- Lighting systems
With the intelligence provided by xChange Point, our team of energy experts identifies under-performing sub-systems and delivers a report detailing all of the inefficient equipment, prioritized by the greatest opportunity for energy and emissions savings with the fastest payback.
We provide recommendations on how to address the areas of concern including which equipment to repair, upgrade or replace. We also identify what type of efficiency and emissions savings you can expect.
This valuable information is a roadmap for developing a repair and replacement strategy to achieve the maximum benefits from the industrial energy efficiency solutions you install at your manufacturing facilities. With this knowledge, you are able to decide on which areas you would like to focus your investment. EPS will then design and implement a complete solution to meet your needs.
After identifying specific inefficient assets to be repaired or replaced at your facility during the Asset Assessment, we develop a comprehensive implementation plan and manage the entire project to completion.
Detailed Project Design Plan
Your customized plan provides a clear overview of the work to be performed, timeline, budget, energy and emissions savings and targeted return on investment. Our recommendations are based on our extensive experience and knowledge of different sub-systems and how they interact with other equipment in the manufacturing process. We consider every detail, including energy consumption, temperatures and pressures for individual equipment. In addition, all of EPS’s equipment recommendations are vendor-neutral, allowing us to design and implement best-in-class systems that make the most sense for your production processes.
The assessment and recommendations include:
- Details of proposed changes
- Work plan and implementation schedule (new equipment, controls and procedures)
- Available qualifying incentives and rebates
- Scope of work and supply
- Project costs and savings
- Return on investment
- Energy and carbon analysis, with specific recommended Industrial Energy Efficiency Solutions
Implementation and Management
Upon plan approval, EPS will then repair, upgrade or replace the equipment. More than just an energy management company, we’re your energy intelligence partner. Our experienced project leaders and construction engineers manage every detail of your project, delivering reliability and results.You benefit from a single partner, from assessment through implementation, who knows the nuances of energy efficiency in the manufacturing environment like no other.
With years of experience successfully implementing industrial energy efficiency solutions on time and within budget, EPS stands by our recommendations so you can be confident you will achieve the full scope of energy savings outlined in the plan. In addition to our regional teams, we draw from an extensive network of the most knowledgeable energy professionals in the country. As a result, we are able to respond quickly to your needs with the most qualified talent available.
Incentives, Rebates and Financing
During planning, EPS investigates all the available options for utility rebates, state incentives and federal stimulus funding as they pertain to your project and equipment. On your behalf, we will secure your rebates and ensure you gain the fastest return on investment. EPS also offers a number of financing and leasing options so you can overcome capital or budget constraints, accelerate the implementation of the industrial energy efficiency solutions and start realizing the financial and performance benefits faster.
