Companies of all sizes are discovering they can both protect their bottom lines and adopt environmentally-friendly initiatives, particularly those in the area of energy management. Utilitizing the tools of Six Sigma and Lean to eliminate waste and maximize efficiency, corporate leaders are excited about the dollars saved and goodwill produced with minimal effort and little to no cost.
Six Sigma and Lean methodologies have been utilized to reduce defects, increase efficiency and improve the profitability of organizations for many years. Industries are now realizing the value of these tools as they apply to the field of Energy Management.
For years large companies such as GE and Dow Chemical have applied these principles and saved millions in projects related to energy efficiency. But the opportunities are not limited to the large Fortune 500 companies! And with state and federal funds available, these projects are more popular than ever.
One Current Example
Strategic Leadership Solutions is currently completing a project for one company in which we have identified significant savings on their electric bill. The project began with an energy audit identifying areas of wasted energy consumption. Two key areas were identified: (1) Lighting, (2) Air Compressor Usage. Improved lighting technology was recommended. The technology can be instituted gradually as bulbs need to be replaced. The air compressor was much larger than was warranted for the size of company. Estimates were provided to downsize to more appropriate equipment and the estimated ROI. Alternatives to better utilize current equipment were also implemented.
Let Us Assist You!
Strategic Leadership Solutions can provide the same service to your organization. To do so we normally begin with an energy audit to help you identify economical improvements that can yield substantial savings. You can utilize the audit and implement the suggestions on your own, or we can assist you in your energy improvements. Our staff can help conduct capital improvement investigations and collect quotes. We can also perform statistical analysis on equipment capacity and performance. We look for practical applications for your current equipment and processes.
Impact the Bottom Line
Energy management greatly reduces operating costs, directly impacting the bottom line of your business. There are several grant and rebate programs available through both state and federal agencies. We can navigate the maze to help you find available resources as well. This is an excellent time to “think green.”
