Operations Management

Spartan’s Monitoring, Targeting, and Reporting (MT&R) approach to energy management is based on internationally proven information management strategies that have typically yielded 5-15% savings of energy costs. The MT&R process begins with ensuring proper metering infrastructure design and data management. Wireless measurements are often the enabling technology. Rigorously validated data is used to generate multi variate energy consumption models at multiple levels of resolution. Achievable energy performance targets are set based on historical performance, and target deviations are identified using a statistical tool set. The resulting information is strategically reported to the appropriate personnel to drive action and results. MT&R is a continuous improvement process, ensuring sustained benefits..

Challenge: 

Industrial facilities operate and control based on product quality and production rate, while energy consumption on is often overlooked. A high-level energy budget may exist, but day-to-day operations rarely place significant weight on energy costs. 


Solution:

Spartan implemented the MT&R solution at two industrial sites, identifying potential electrical savings of 30.3 GWh/year and 9.5 GWh/year. Significant potential savings of other energy sources were also identified.
