How to produce more, use less energy and be rewarded for upgrades? It can be done.
Our client, an injection moulding plant working for automotive sector, wanted to upgrade to bigger, more powerful machines. These machines use more energy. However, they produce so much more product, that energy use per pound is effectively lower. Much lower.
This conclusion has been confirmed through detailed M&V, that included ‘before’ and ‘after’ energy consumption measurement and proper calculations.
Compared to a year ago, company uses 5% less energy while selling 10% more product. This is a result of using bigger machines to produce bigger parts.
