A common misconception within industry has been to equate an energy reduction or conservation program with the concept of turning off equipment and shutting down processes. Instead, the program of energy management challenges plant staff to produce the products or services with the absolute minimum energy consumption. The objective is to minimize energy usage through production efficiency gains, while procuring the lowest cost and most reliable supplies of fuel and power.

In this course the student will learn how to establish a facility energy-management program, to identify and evaluate energy conservation opportunities involving motor-driven equipment, and to design a motor improvement plan. These actions will help you to reduce energy costs, improve motor-driven system reliability and efficiency, increase productivity, and minimize unscheduled downtime.
