This report describes the work of EPA and the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry to develop an Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for facilities that develop and manufacture pharmaceutical products in the United States. Learn how EPA uses EPIs to encourage industries to voluntarily improve their energy use. The report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the EPI for pharmaceutical manufacturing plants. The equations are presented with instructions for using them in an associated Excel spreadsheet.
This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for pulp, paper, and paperboard mill plants. It also explains how the EPI was developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy efficiency by working with the pulp and paper mill industry. This report is useful if you would like background information on how EPA's ENERGY STAR Pulp and Paper Mill EPI was developed. The report presents the individual equations used to develop the EPI, as well as instructions for using them in an associated Excel spreadsheet.
Do you have energy efficiency projects that have been postponed or rejected due to capital budget limitations, other projects with better returns, or lack of expertise? Yet, from your perspective the project should be a “no brainer” due to the immediate positive cash flows generated by the energy savings. Understanding your organization’s decision-making process, being able to effectively speak to the benefit of improved cash flow, and improving your financial literacy can greatly increase your probability of receiving approval for a project.
This presentation explains how Dome-Tech assissted Merck in energy conservation through retrocommissioning.
Dome-Tech’s retro-commissioning and recalibration program led to Schering-Plough realizing annual savings of $450,000.
Dome-Tech's retro commissioning efforts lead to Merck's implementing an HVAC control strategy resulting in annual savings of over $230,000.
Dome-Tech installs 1.6 MW DC solar power tracking system at Merck to reduce CO2 emissions.
A plant energy performance indicator (EPI) for tomato product processing is currently under testing. We need help in reviewing the model before it can be finalized and offered for certification. If you are interested in providing testing assistance, please try out this model by inputting the information for each of your company's tomato product processing plants. Once the model has generated a score for each plant, please contact Gale Boyd at Duke University (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the model's performance.
