Energy Efficient Design

  In the process of energy-efficient design uses the same technical knowledge, attitudes and practices, and in the process of energy audit on existing plants. The most important difference is that in the design phase there is a choice in areas such as the main design parameters of the installation, use the production process, the main production equipment, etc.

   This difference creates opportunities for the application of energy-efficient solutions and technologies, the introduction of which the existing facilities may be impossible or very expensive. Many energy efficiency projects achieve energy savings that make up 20 — 30% of total energy consumption. These values are significantly greater than that which can be achieved through energy audits in existing facilities.
   Choosing energy-efficient technologies for the production process is an essential part of energy-efficient design that deserves special attention, as the choice of technology, as a rule, is only for new construction or modernization of existing large-scale enterprise. In many cases, the choice of optimal technology associated greatest potential for energy savings.

  UKRSOCPROJECT offers at the planning stage of building a new company or plant, or major renovation of existing facilities to assess the costs associated with energy production processes, equipment and systems for the life of the object. In many cases, you may find that the costs associated with power consumption, make up a significant part of the total cost of ownership, which is calculated for the entire service life of the enterprise and installation.

  UKRSOTSPROEKT encouraged to organize work on energy-efficient design in stages, for example:
    • evaluation of data on energy consumption and identify priority areas;
    • minimize energy requirements and the application of best available technology;
    • contribute to developing design solutions, including solutions for instrumentation systems;
    • assessing the quality of tendering;
    • the activities of the implementation phase of the project.

    Each stage must be completed by the representation of results, allowing the company to prioritize areas for further analysis.
  To ensure the best possible outcome of the process of energy-efficient design appropriate follow below guidelines:
    • despite the fact that many of the parameters of proposed investments are not defined in the early stages of conceptual design activities for energy-efficient design should begin during this period in order to maximize economic benefits and not to delay further the design process;
    • all the data on energy consumption and related costs over the life of the proposed facility must be designed and produced in the early stages of conceptual / basic design. It is essential that all data on energy consumption were submitted for evaluation to a person or organization responsible for the energy-efficient design. Often, suppliers and manufacturers are unable or refuse to provide data at this stage, in which case the options must be evaluated by other means. Data collection can be carried out in the framework of the design process or separately;
    • as a consultant, carrying out activities on energy-efficient design, the company should be involved, independent designers, equipment suppliers, contractors.
