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.
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
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
- despite the fact that many of the parameters of proposed investments are
not defined in the early stages of conceptual design activities for
energy-efficientdesign 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-efficientdesign. 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-efficientdesign, the company should be involved, independent designers, equipment suppliers, contractors.
