Description

The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Industrial Assessment Center (GT IAC) has a long history working on the IAC program with over 30 years of experience in meeting the IAC program’s goals in a very effective manner since beginning participation in the IAC program’s predecessor, the EADC, in 1977. During the last four year contract period, October 1, 2002 through September 31, 2006, the GT IAC continued this work with the assessments of eighty nine (89) industrial facilities. These assessments resulted in the reported implemented savings of forty eight thousand (48,000,000) kWh of electricity and seven hundred and fifty thousand (750,000) ... continued below

Description

The Georgia Institute of Technology’s Industrial Assessment Center (GT IAC) has a long history working on the IAC program with over 30 years of experience in meeting the IAC program’s goals in a very effective manner since beginning participation in the IAC program’s predecessor, the EADC, in 1977. During the last four year contract period, October 1, 2002 through September 31, 2006, the GT IAC continued this work with the assessments of eighty nine (89) industrial facilities. These assessments resulted in the reported implemented savings of forty eight thousand (48,000,000) kWh of electricity and seven hundred and fifty thousand (750,000) MMBtu of natural gas. The total calculated cost savings from the recommendations implemented was five and a half million dollars ($5,500,000). These savings reoccur annually. However, this cost savings is the total of various recommendations that were calculated during 2002 to 2006. During this time period, energy prices were almost always lower than current energy prices. If you adjust the cost savings number to account for current energy prices, the cost savings would exceed nine million dollars ($9,000,000) reoccurring annually. Beyond the reduction of industrial energy consumption and the cost savings benefit, education has also been an important element of this Center’s work. Primarily this entailed both formal and on the job training of this Center’s student employees. Over the four year time frame, this Center has had fifteen different student employees work for this Center. This Center has also instructed a graduate level senior mechanical engineering class that allowed senior engineering students to conduct IAC assessments under the supervision of IAC staff. This class exposed over one hundred students to industrial energy consumption and energy efficiency. In addition to educating students, the education of plant personnel has also been an important element for this Center. It is believed that this Center has made effective use of IAC program resources by reducing industrial plant energy consumption and cost by helping them become more energy efficient. In turn, this has helped make domestic industry more competitive. This Center has also helped by introducing the next generation of engineers to energy efficiency in the industrial sector.
