Energy Tips From Our Energy Expert Magnus Holfelt, Part 2

15 May 2024

There are many examples of industries that have an unnecessarily high energy consumption during times when operations are at a standstill, on vacations, weekends and long weekends. Because of this, securing the lowest possible base load outside production hours is an activity that all industries should work on.

#2 Ensure the lowest possible base load outside of production hours

There are many examples of industries that have an unnecessarily high energy consumption during times when operations are at a standstill, on vacations, weekends and long weekends. Because of this, securing the lowest possible base load outside production hours is an activity that all industries should work on.

 

What should a larger industry think about before the Easter holidays?

 

“Ensure all non-working equipment is turned off during long weekends. With continuous and detailed measurement and a system that visualizes energy usage, operators in production can verify that equipment to be switched off really is switched off," says Magnus Holfelt, Senior Energy Engineer at SenseNode.

 

"We have seen examples of companies that have had large operations on weekends outside production hours, in one case it was idle loads corresponding to 3 GWh on an annual basis!", says Magnus further.

3 Energy Saving Tips From Magnus

  1. Review control of ventilation when no one is present.
  2. Do compressed air and cooling need to be running?
  3. Does equipment have to be in standby? Or can it be turned off completely?
