Industrial installations use a large amount of energy to power a diverse range of manufacturing and resource extraction processes. To reduce the amount of energy required and so as the energy costs, there are many fields that can be upgraded in regard to energy efficiency such as:
- Thermal energy production
- Electrical Energy production
- Thermal & Electrical power distribution
- BMS (Building Management Systems)
- Geothermal Energy
- Motors Efficiency
There are energy efficient solutions on all above fields that can be applied after technical and economical studies, in order to achieve a significant reduction of energy consumption.
In general, buildings incorporating Green energy design principles can significantly reduce energy consumption and their carbon footprint. For example, the amount of sun entering the building minimizes heating needs. In addition, proper placement of windows and skylights as well as the use of architectural features that reflect light into a building can reduce the need for artificial lighting.
