Finding Hidden Energy Waste

Feb. 10, 2014
The first step to reducing building energy costs is identifying energy waste. Statistics on utility bills or name plates on equipment, while useful, are not enough to identify what practices and equipment are contributing to high energy use.

The first step to reducing building energy costs is identifying energy waste. Statistics on utility bills or name plates on equipment, while useful, are not enough to identify what practices and equipment are contributing to high energy use.

In this 12-page best practices guide from Onset Computing you’ll learn how portable data loggers can be used to obtain critical energy use information in a wide range of commercial building types – from manufacturing plants to office buildings. Finding Hidden Energy Waste describes the data logging equipment you need to obtain information on energy consumption and environmental conditions in commercial buildings. It covers eight common forms of energy waste, and provides an overview of how to gather and analyze data and calculate savings for each opportunity.

You will gain energy saving ideas in areas like:
• Verifying Proper HVAC Loads
• Managing Peak Energy Use
• Taking Advantage of Free Cooling
• Leveraging Waste Heat
• How to Maintain Long Term Energy Savings
