Moreover, the only analysis of energy usage of the equipment required is in the context of notifying
facilities personnel as to the voltage and current required from an electricity delivery perspective,
rather than ongoing operating cost.
Addressing and removing these barriers is projected to result in a greater impact on energy
savings than all other activities described in this research combined, but as noted in previous research
(Appendix A), integrating energy efficiency concerns into the capital allocation process, especially
for process equipment, is a difficult challenge from both an organizational and a financial perspective. 5.4 Chapter Summary This chapter covered the details and results of three energy efficiency improvement approaches at
the IADC, each corresponding to a different best practice in the hypothesis.
The best practice of measuring energy usage of individual equipment as part of team-based
continuous improvement projects resulted in a clear improvement in energy efficiency...
