Guide to optimising performance

19 September 2016

ExxonMobil and ENER-G have produced a guide to energy efficiency measures for the food sector, which provides advice and gives practical recommendations on prioritising productivity while also saving energy. 

The guide recommends adopting an integrated energy strategy, including smart metering and control strategies, energy audits, decentralised energy generation such as combined heat and power (CHP), and changing to more energy-efficient lubricants. 

It also offers best-practice tips on reducing energy demand in offices, factories and warehouses; summarises the financial help available for implementing energy efficient measures such as CHP; describes how the right lubricant selection can help companies save energy; and provides guidance on legislative and regulatory compliance. 

"Industrial energy bills can be reduced by as much as one-fifth, through simple, cost-effective measures to cut wastage," said Chris Marsland, technical director for ENER-G. "The guide outlines how on-site energy generation using efficient, low carbon technologies, such as combined heat and power, can create enormous savings. The latest research shows that inefficient energy production is costing the UK £9.5 billion per year, whereas decentralised energy production using CHP can achieve cost savings of up to 40% over electricity sourced from the grid and heat generated by on-site boilers."

The guide also contains advice from experts at ExxonMobil on how high-performance synthetic lubricants can help companies save energy.

“High-performance lubricants can help businesses to enhance energy savings, improve productivity, and provide safety benefits by cutting unscheduled maintenance,” said Andrea Jacobsen, industrial marketing manager for Europe, Africa and Middle East, ExxonMobil. “The food sector, like many other energy-intensive industries, is looking at ways to cuts its energy consumption without hampering productivity. We hope the guide will help increase awareness of the important role that lubricants can play in attaining that goal.”
