5 Energy Saving Tips from Emmanuel Ledesma PSALM

There are many strategies that energy consultant like Emmanuel Ledesma PSALM can provide to companies for them to lessen the strain of supplying electricity at the load end or to lower loads to the greatest extent feasible in a manner that will not disrupt their operations. 

Aside from the obvious environmental benefits, energy savings can help companies in the Philippines to save millions annually that would have been spent on wasted energy. At the same time, utility companies have the potential to satisfy their power demands while saving the same amount of money on energy costs.

Here are five tips that Emmanuel Ledesma, PSALM president for five years, share to all of his clients when efficient energy savings is to be achieved.

1.) Establish a Clear Energy Policy

A document or collection of laws that includes plans and procedures to be performed for the purpose of saving energy is what is known as an energy policy. The formation of policies pertaining to energy takes place on the basis of a number of different criteria.

For instance, the following characteristics may be found in ISO 50001, a standard that was developed for the sake of energy management:

  • Formulating energy strategy in order to maximize energy usage efficiency
  • The process of establishing goals and targets for the policy.
  • Review of the data to facilitate improved comprehension and decision-making around energy consumption.
  • Results measurement.
  • Reviewing the policy
  • Developing better policies

2.) Conduct an Energy Audit

A routine energy audit that is carried out by an experienced professional such as Emmanuel Ledesma PSALM is helpful in determining the power losses that are caused by various pieces of equipment, as well as the areas in which the majority of the power is consumed and the steps that need to be taken in order to reduce power consumption without negatively impacting production.

The following procedures are included in an energy audit:

  • Walkthough Audit: involves examining the entire area’s major and minor loads, the kind of work that is done there, the number of workers, shifts, and timings, etc. The changes that can come about as a consequence of these audits include things like replacing aging CFL lights with LED lights with and cutting down on the number of switches used for each luminary, among other things.
  • Detailed Audit: This includes the collection of data, comparison of bills, losses due to equipment, replacing old equipment with new equipment and calculating the payback period for the new equipment, and determining what major steps need to be taken by a facility for power savings. These steps might include educating their workers about energy-saving steps and offering incentives to employees who show responsibility towards them.

3.) Invest in Renewable Energy

Renewable sources of energy are quickly becoming the norm in today’s society due to their zero or almost zero carbon footprints as compared to other energy sources. The utilization of renewable energy sources such as wind energy, solar energy, biomass energy, and many more are all included in this category.

These energies are employed for providing the load through the combination of equipment that is a part of the power system, in addition to power electronic gadgets. The implementation of renewable energy sources in manufacturing plants may serve not only to cut costs but also to lessen the burden placed on the local utility provider. For instance, installing solar panels on an industrial scale and moving lighting demand to them can assist in significantly lowering the strain of electricity generation.

4.) Switch to Efficient Lighting

It is estimated that the expenditures associated with lighting can account for up to 40 percent of an entire building’s energy consumption overall. Installing lighting solutions that are more energy-efficient may help businesses and organizations substantially cut their energy consumption. This, in turn, improves the quality of life for the inhabitants of the building and lowers the expenses associated with both energy use and maintenance.

5.) Have a Detailed Housekeeping and Maintenance Plan

In industrial settings, increasing the frequency of routine maintenance and keeping an eye on the loads being carried by machines can assist extend their useful lives while also reducing the risk of catastrophic failure.

Take, for instance: The brightness of the lights is readily reduced by dust. The correct brightness of the light is achieved by routine cleaning, which also extends its useful life.

The malfunction of the motor may be caused by an imbalance in the voltage. Keeping an eye on voltage imbalance and taking steps to correct it can save the motor from suffering significant harm.

In some types of manufacturing, the constant use of machinery can lead to a rise in the temperature of the motor. Additional, prolonged exposure to a harsh environment causes both physical harm to the body as well as insulation difficulties. Protecting a motor from the harmful effects of its surrounding environment can be accomplished in a number of ways, including developing a routine maintenance plan that includes regular maintenance, inspection, and cleaning.
