Focus On : Energy Efficiency


Energy efficiency, energy recovery, energy audits and energy management are top agenda items for plant engineers wanting to cut costs and carbon emissions – and green technologies can help.

Improvements cover every aspect of plant, from boiler plant and steam traps to building energy management systems, air conditioning equipment, compressors, electric motors, variable speed drives, heat pumps, and combined heat and power plant.

Whether your project involves fans, pumps, HVAC, condensate recovery on steam plant, using alternative energy sources (from biomass and biogas, to solar or wave energy), installing evaporative cooling or upgrading a combined cycle gas turbine, Plant Engineer is here to help.

For ideas and experience on cutting greenhouse gas emissions and your carbon footprint, while also saving energy and cost, follow our energy efficiency focus.
