Schneider Electric helps customers make the most their energy
To meet with Government legislation and combat high fuel costs, energy efficiency is essential for any modern business, which is why Schneider Electric has published an Energy Efficiency Application Guide packed full of recommendations and easy steps to help end users make the most of their energy.
As well as including product information and specification assistance, the guide recommends complete solutions to help ensure process, lighting and HVAC systems run at optimum efficiency.
Starting with detailing the legislative reasons for energy efficiency, the handbook then follows the four steps to achieving it; measure, fix the basics, automate, and monitor and improve, to guide users through the ways to reduce electricity consumption.
Schneider Electric's energy management expert, David Lewis explains: "The guide takes contractors and building managers through four simple steps to reducing energy usage. Firstly we recommend measuring energy use metering and energy audits and simple bill analysis, which can monitor the usage of the various installations, areas/rooms and different systems, such as heating and lighting, to identify where savings can be made.
"Secondly, we advise that the building's occupants are trained on how to reduce electrical consumption by switching devices off when not in use and utilising components such as energy efficient lighting and power factor correction. Thirdly, we offer a wide range of automated controls, from timers, impulse relays and presence detection to VSDs and management systems, which help limit energy consumption. Finally, we suggest usage is continuously monitored and recorded to help make further improvements.
"We are also able to offer a hands-on consultancy service to businesses and contractors wanting to reduce the level of energy used in the buildings they look after, but the Energy Efficiency Application Guide is a referral tool full of additional advice and support."
Schneider Electric recently welcomed Telford MP, David Wright, to its manufacturing facilities in Telford, to understand the company's approach to energy efficiency and how government policy can be used to achieve greater energy saving and environmental benefits.
As part of the visit, David Wright met with key Schneider Electric personnel to learn about the company's four step approach to energy efficiency, which seeks to make energy management simple for businesses. In addition, the MP was taken on a site tour to see the company's impressive products in operation, which are integral to its energy efficiency offer. This included metering, lighting controls, building management systems and variable speed drives; all solutions designed to help organisations improve the energy efficiency of their operations.
