Reducing the energy costs at a facility must surely be one of the most effective and achievable strategies for lowering operating costs. This Competency in Practical Engineering for Energy Efficiency course at Engineering Institute of Technology gives you the practical tools to identify and implement programs and projects to reduce energy consumption in the most effective and practical ways.

You will be provided with the skills and latest knowledge on proven methods of making real savings in your energy bills. You can initiate such programs as soon as you wish, and start saving immediately thereafter.

The programme

You will be greatly surprised at the levels of energy losses and poor efficiency of some of the devices in your facility that consume power when the facility is operational and also the energy consumption of your facility when it is not operational. Did you know that the operating cost of an electric motor is typically 200 times the initial purchase price over 20 years?

BOTH OF THESE FACTORS ARE COSTING YOUR FIRM – energy can account for up to 85% of the input costs, so reductions in these bills are directly responsible for better profits. You will be taught the fundamental principles of energy efficiency by way of looking for points of wastage, assessment of the cost of energy usage and benefits accruing from improved energy efficiency in the facility. Reference points are needed, so the course will also show you how to quickly and effectively perform an energy audit of your facility, demonstrating the use of installed instrumentation as well as measuring equipment deployed during the audit.

Once you have the correct information from the audit, you will be taught a simple method of cost analysis to help you make the right decisions for improvement, based on the principle of Rapid Return on Investment (RRI). This will enable you to implement the optimum energy-efficient solution and thus to start saving money in some cases immediately, but in a worse case scenario, a typically short period of time (perhaps 3 to 12 months RRI).
