Unformatted text preview: f SMEs like electricians and cell leaders, we targeted equipment believed to be the highest users of electricity during a typical production cycle, and grouped some similar types of equipment together into general categories. For example, there are 23 industrial-sized floor ovens used in CCA of varying models, sizes and usage patterns. Rather than measuring the electricity use of each one individually for this phase of the process, we divided the 23 ovens into two categories: conventional ovens an(d friction air ovens. Conventional ovens use a resistive heating element to generate heat, while friction air ovens use the friction created from a fan to generate heat. We then used an SME identified representative sample of each type of oven to measure electricity use during a production cycle for each category of equipment in CCA. Other examples of categorization and sampling were with office equipment (computers and monitors), workbench equipment (soldering irons, hot plates, ionizers, desk vacuums etc.), and process venting fans....
