Energy efficiency is a proven investment for small and large businesses, industry, hospitals, and other organizations. Investments in efficiency help make businesses more profitable, manage rising energy costs, and can enhance a company's role as a corporate citizen. And, with high return on investment and compelling paybacks, investments in energy efficiency are also low-risk.
Improving industrial energy efficiency provides an attractive opportunity not only for significantly reducing GHG emissions, but also significant cost savings for manufacturers, processors, and pretty well any organization with a boiler plant and steam operations (including hospitals). What makes this opportunity even more attractive is that instead of investing heavily into research and development in search of new solutions, technologies that can benefit businesses and fight the climate change battle are available today. For instance, our proven energy efficiency solutions have a long track record of providing energy savings of up to 30% with compelling financial returns and paybacks of 1 - 5 years.
Why invest in energy efficiency?
Increasing competitiveness – By lowering energy costs and reducing the exposure to the risks stemming from volatile energy prices, companies can become profitable and operate their businesses more efficiently. With between 20 to 50% of all industrial energy input being lost as waste heat in the form of hot exhaust gases, cooling water, and heat lost from hot equipment surfaces and heated products, large cost saving opportunities and increased productivity can be achieved by companies who can use energy more efficiently
Improve the operating performance of your building – When building systems are properly operated and maintained, they work more reliably and efficiently, require fewer repairs, and last longer.
Improving companies’ corporate image – Reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change and demonstrate your organization's corporate commitment to the environment at the same time. By positioning themselves at the forefront of efforts to develop a green economy, companies that engage in energy efficiency activities can achieve significant intangible benefits associated with a positive awareness of their brand.
We just wrapped up three days in beautiful Las Vegas at the 2017 AHR Expo --- the largest HVACR show and marketplace in the world. The AHR Expo, which started 85 years ago as a heating and ventilation show, has grown into the HVACR event of the year and is held in major cities across the U.S.
The show was well attended by HVACR professionals serving commercial, industrial, residential and institutional markets. The event provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase our best-in-class energy efficiency solutions, providing us with good exposure to contractors, engineers, OEMs, distributors and other industry professionals attending the Expo searching for new products and services.
