Energy Management Program

Connect Insight to Execution

Reduce usage, lower costs, and reduce environmental impacts through systematic management of energy utilization.

Did you know the Industrial Sector accounts for nearly 50% of all energy consumed?

Reliable, defect-free equipment saves energy through the efficient use of energy and resources required in the manufacturing process. Allied Reliability provides real-world strategies and solutions to maximize energy efficiency by providing hands-on tools and resources for reducing energy consumption and its related environmental impacts (carbon footprint), as well as for improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in Industrial Manufacturing environments.

Meet Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Expectations

Most companies have developed and published an ESG or Sustainability statement that clearly identifies energy reduction targets and environmental goals: reduce energy consumption, improve waste management practices, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, optimize capital investment for energy efficiency, etc. Allied Reliability is positioned to quickly help you identify areas of improvement to move towards and achieve these targets and goals.

Find Cost Savings and Production Gains

Energy Management is a win-win. Meet environmental objectives while reducing production costs, maintenance expenditures, and other operational expenses. Allied Reliability can help you achieve both by integrating proactive maintenance activities, such as condition-based maintenance (CBM), performed at a facility with the energy-focused efforts and initiatives to provide added value to the overall Energy Management Program.

How Does It Work? How Do We Deliver It?

With our Energy Management deliverable, Allied Reliability makes direct links between applicable defects to potential savings opportunities. When a defect is present, not only does it put equipment at risk of operational failure, but it also performs less efficiently, reduces quality, increases energy usage, and increases greenhouse gas emissions. To help our client identify these opportunities, Allied Reliability offers both one-off and combined services including:

STEAM SYSTEM ANALYSIS

Allied Reliability uses condition monitoring technologies like infrared thermography and ultrasound to identify system defects such as a faulty steam trap. We can identify such cases and quantify the cost of the defect both in dollars and greenhouse gas emissions.

LEAK SURVEYS

Allied Reliability identifies leaks within your facility such as compressed air, gases, lubricants, and even product that, if left unattended, lead to the continuous waste of energy and product, and potential safety risks.

HEAT TRANSFER ANALYSIS

Allied Reliability identifies and reports inefficient transfer of heat. Specifically, this deliverable focuses on transfer systems, piping, refrigeration, storage, etc., identifying, and quantifying defects within these systems that both improve operational variability and increase energy efficiency.

BUILDING ENVELOPE ANALYSIS

Allied Reliability uses cutting-edge technologies to develop an accurate and detailed “big picture” of the facility’s energy performance. Armed with this information, our customers can select the most appropriate and cost-effective strategies for repair and renovation.

ENERGY AUDITS

Plant energy audits are comprehensive evaluations of the actual performance of a plant’s energy-using systems and equipment compared against the designed performance level or the industry best practice. As a part of this audit, Allied Reliability incorporates condition monitoring technologies and services to help companies identify immediate actions for improving energy performance, prioritizing projects, and tracking their energy management progress.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT

Energy Management efforts should be cohesive and work towards the same goal of minimizing energy costs, ensuring a reliable energy supply, and identifying energy savings opportunities. Allied Reliability helps our clients develop strategic and comprehensive Energy Management Programs that recognize industry standards such as ISO 50001, ISO 9001, and the like.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT TRAINING

Allied Reliability has a robust training offering that covers all topics related to equipment reliability, operational excellence, and condition monitoring technology uses and applications, as well as Energy Management training that identifies links between Operations and Maintenance.

FULL-TIME ENERGY ENGINEER

We have the capability of supplying dedicated resources for your energy efforts, whether the need is identification of opportunities, leading projects, analyzing data, or training internal company personnel on the intricacies of Energy Management.
