Asset Management Strategies to Reduce Your Energy Consumption by 20% or More

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that most industrial facilities in the manufacturing, mining, and process industries can reduce energy consumption by 20% by implementing existing best practices.  

The savings can be doubled with investment in R&D and technology. Much of the savings is derived from better management, operation, and maintenance of production assets.  

This workshop introduces the important role asset managers and maintenance & reliability engineers play in reducing energy consumption. In addition to saving energy-related costs, deploying the important practices described in this workshop reduces greenhouse gas (GHG)emissions and reduces wear and tear on the equipment assets.  

  • Minimising parasitic frictional losses
  • Reducing the effects of electrical harmonics
  • Achieving phase-to-phase electrical balance
  • Finding and eliminating pressurised fluid leaks
  • Maintaining combustion efficiency
What Decarbonisation Means for Asset and Maintenance Managers

Maintenance and reliability leaders are essential in helping organisations navigate the transition to a more sustainable and climate-resilient future. How do we adapt to these new technologies, optimise energy use, and comply with a changing regulatory landscape in the context of decarbonisation and climate change targets? All disrupting previous lifecycle plans, investment, and reinvestment decisions, asset management strategies and tactics, and the physical asset manager’s role.

  • What is the impact on jobs and skills?
  • How do we work with regulators and the requirements and environmental standards?
  • What measures should asset managers take to account for the risks associated with stranded assets in the context of decarbonisation efforts?
  • What about the capacity and resource challenges coming our way with all companies relying on the same suppliers and resources to decarb at the same time?
  • What opportunities and challenges will asset managers face in integrating renewable energy sources and clean technologies into their asset management strategies?
  • How will the role of the reliability engineers change?
