Energy Conservation Techniques - Efficiency Improvement Methods - Opportunites

Some case study results - 2012 Seminar

The program generated an energy savings of $ 8.8 million  in 2011  - Saudi Aramco

THES earned an incentive of $250,000 by advising Cadbury in energy savings in ammonia system control project.


Two energy projects required $1.1 million of capital and saved $1.0 million in utility steam
annually - Honeywell Chemical plant, Hopewell, Virginia


All plant utility systems were modeling and evaluating all plant utility systems  identified cost reduction opportunities or more than $5 million. - TPG Group Houston Operations
