Yes, unlocking the mismanaged energy.
Many of our industrial plants are usually well managed in operational activities like purchase, production and delivery. Systems are established to keep vigil for any of waste or non-conformity in these processes. In most of the cases, energy, especially the electrical energy is backbone of these processes. It is observed that in many such well managed plants, the electrical energy is either mismanaged or not managed at all. Now it is demand of the time that we must learn and execute practices to manage energy in our industrial plants and to manage it well.
Mismanagement is the process of managing carelessly, inefficiently, ineptly, incompetently or dishonestly. So, it is about handling the process without any care or without any knowledge. And that may arise due to lack of proper systems.
As said earlier, in many of industrial plants, the energy is mismanaged. It is used inefficiently. The reason may be either lack of information or lack of knowledge. And most of the times, this is due to lack of proper systems which provide handy information. Also, this is due to lack of proper knowledge resource who could assist to find out and restore this mismanaged energy.
Finding out mismanaged energy
One of the reasons of mismanaged energy is lack of information. This information is regarding the actual energy use, and standard energy use. The categorical information like shop wise energy use, machine wise energy use, time slot wise energy use is necessary. Artificial intelligence in the system gives the information on cautions and warnings. So, information is crucial component in finding out mismanaged energy. Once we start getting information, we can find out mismanaged energy based on that information.
Restoring mismanaged energy
Once you get the information about the mismanaged energy, you can work on to restore it to well managed energy. First, you have to analyse this mismanaged energy and its root causes. After analysis, you have to check the ways to restore it. And to this, you must have knowledge. You can hire an agency having this knowledge to train your people. This is an ongoing process, so there must be proper mechanism which would encourage your people to keep it doing. Standardization is another point which should be taken care of. What you do and how you do must be standardised and this standard must get improved with time.
If you have proper system and proper process to monitor energy, analyse it for mismanaged energy and restore that mismanaged energy to well managed energy, our industrial plant efficiency would surely go upwards. In effect to this, the Overall Equipment Effectiveness of your plant is going to go up and so is the profitability.
How we can help it?
For last 30 years, we are working in the field of energy management. We can supply and install systems required for energy monitoring and management. We can also help you to restore mismanaged energy with our energy management solutions. We can establish energy management process in your industrial plant and train your staff to find out mismanaged energy and to restore it.
