Energy Efficiency & Consulting Services, LLC utilizes a unique three-phase approach to energy efficiency that delivers to the client the greatest savings with the smallest financial expenditure.

Phase 1 focuses on improving the efficiency of individual components of a system.

  • First, the existing operational efficiency of the equipment will be evaluated 

  • The maintenance and historical performance data of the components or equipment  will be evaluated for any inefficiencies in operation. 

  • Manufacturers’ performance data on the individual components in the system will be acquired. 

  • A  load analysis of individual pieces of equipment performance will be established.

  • An analysis will be completed comparing the existing performance of the equipment to the manufacturers’ rated performance.

  • The steps needed to improve efficiency of the equipment will be recommended.

  • This phase has an average simple payback period of 0 to 1.5 years.

 

Phase 2 deals with the operation and efficiency of complete systems.

  • ·Load profiles of the individual pieces of equipment that were developed in Phase 1 will be incorporated into the overall system’s load profile and performance.

  • All the static and dynamic loads affecting the system's efficiency including process loads and outside weather conditions will be identified.

  • A load profile will be developed demonstrating the impact of the static and dynamic loads on the energy consumption of the system.

  • Strategies to meet the demand in an efficient manner will be analyzed and recommended.

This phase has a simple payback period of 1 to 2 years. 

 

Phase 3 involves the modification of existing systems to gain greater efficiency and reliability.

  • After the existing system’s energy efficiency has been optimized, Phase 3 should begin with modifications to further improve the system’s performance.

  • Modifications may include redesigning select components in the system, adding new equipment, adding new controls to the system, and/or new strategies of control.

  • This phase has a simple payback period equal to or greater than 2.5 years.
