ENERGY MANAGEMENT SURVEY (EMS) GIVES CLAMASON INDUSTRIES INSIGHT INTO ENERGY USE
Midlands based Clamason Industries are one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of precision metal pressings.
An environmentally conscious company, Clamason Industries were keen to explore options to reduce carbon emissions and save on energy costs.
SMARTech energy were approached to carry out an energy management survey (EMS) – with the aid of energy monitoring to establish how to reduce Clamason Industries’ utility consumption costs and improve the energy management within the business.
Our report provides a detailed, impartial appraisal and return on investment for solutions specific to their business issues and opportunities.
The site has a net total energy consumption of 3,353,932 kWh for electricity and gas per year. The site is split into four units, namely Unit 2, Unit 7, Unit 8 and Unit 9. The electrical and gas energy consumption and energy costs per annum for the four units are shown below:
|Particulars||Annual Electrical Energy Consumption||Annual Gas Energy Consumption||Annual Total Energy Consumption|
|Unit 2||570135 kWh||479361 kWh||1049496 kWh|
|Unit 7||50351 kWh||125686 kWh||176037 kWh|
|Unit 8||231024 kWh||168767 kWh||399791 kWh|
|Unit 9||835619 kWh||892990 kWh||1728609 kWh|
|TOTAL||1687128 kWh||1666804 kWh||3353932 kWh|
|Particulars||Annual Electrical Energy Bills||Annual Gas Energy Bills||Annual Total Energy Bills|
HOW WE HELPED
The SMARTech energy management survey looked at how, when and where this energy is being used. It has identified total approximate savings of 53.37% for the electric savings interventions and 5% for gas savings interventions.
This represents a technically and economically validated opportunity to prevent ongoing energy waste. For example, if these savings had been identified and implemented five years ago, the site would have avoided a bill of more than £500k in utility charges (based on present tariffs).
Our report presents opportunities to manage future utility spend and offers savings that will compensate for predicted electricity price inflation. Clamason Industries have already entered into a new utility contract with their energy provider and has revised unit rates that are 30% higher than the existing unit rates.
SMARTech energy proposes a method that will help avoid this energy waste and provide an opportunity to promote carbon savings measures.
From our energy management survey review we have identified the following areas that can be improved using specified solutions:
LED Lighting Strategy
Power Factor Correction
Motor Optimisation System
Solar PV for Unit 8
Smart Gas Savers
The entire energy management survey as it has been presented, provides an opportunity to save 29.5% on annual energy spend.
- Achieving total Co2 savings of 271.7 tonnes per year
- Total ROI of 2.7 years
The finalised report gave recommendations for areas of improvement. By implementing these recommendations, Clamason Industries will reduce their company’s electricity bills, carbon footprint and show improved profits.
